Final Fantasy VII Remake wins Best Of Show in Best of E3 2019 awards

Square Enix has dominated the E3 2019 Game Critics awards, as Doom Eternal goes home with two separate wins.

Final Fantasy VII Remake has been named as the best game of E3 2019, while also picking up awards for Best Console Game and Best RPG.

Doom Eternal was the only other game to get more than two awards, winning Best PC Game and Best Action Game.

The awards are judged by a range of video game critics from around the world, of which we were one, but with the exception of the special commendation awards are only handed out to playable games

Square Enix was the only publisher to win three awards, with Bethesda and Activision both picking up two – the latter for Crash Team Racing as Best Racing Game and Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare for Best Online Multiplayer.

Other notable winners included The Outer Worlds for Best Original Game, Watch Dogs: Legion for Best Action/Adventure, and John Wick Hex for Best Strategy.

12 Minutes was named as best indie game, while Cyberpunk 2077 – which wasn’t playable at the show – won the Special Commendations for Graphics.

The full list of winners is below and you can see previous years’ awards, going back all the way to 1998, here.
