We recently posted a list of the Game Critics Awards “Best of E3” nominees, and today we bring you the winners, hooray! Not only did the jaw-droppingly impressive Uncharted 2 feature prominently on the nominations, Naughty Dog’s PS3 exclusive also dominated the awards – winning the coveted “Best of Show” award.  Score one for Sony!

There were no major surprises in the awards, other than Scribblenauts (one of my most anticipated titles) clinching the “Best Original Game” award. Slightly disappointing for followers of Double Fine’s Brütal Legend is that it managed to garner not one win from its many nominations.

Hit the jump for the complete list of winners.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    Can’t wait for Split/second , Black Rock did a splendid job with Pure.
    Uncharted will be off the charts , and Modern Warfare 2 will be the biggest seller of all time on ps3/xbox/pc.
