Resident Evil 2 crowned the Best of Show at E3 2018

The chilling remake gets the Game Critics seal of approval.

Late last week, we told you about the nominations for the E3 Game Critics Awards, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. A bunch of categories that selected outlets visiting E3 - including Gamereactor - could vote for.

We speculated that Anthem might be the overall winner in 2018 since it got a lot of nominations, and while it did reach some success, it didn't get the most prestigious award, that being Best of Show. That honour went to the remake of Resident Evil 2 instead.

Below is the full list of all the winners, feel free to drop a comment and tell us whether you think the right titles won in the end. If you want to know more about the games we played and saw at E3, head over to Gamereactor's Game of E3.
