Game Critics Awards announce winners for E3 2013 – Titanfall sweeps up, Oculus Rift punches out

The Game Critics Awards winners were announced for E3 2013. Titanfall took home a total of 6 awards including Best of Show and Best Original Game. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise considering how the nominations turned out a week ago.

PC gamers can rejoice as well because, shockingly, the Oculus Rift managed to take home the Best Hardware award even though it was up against Microsoft and Sony’s new 8th generation consoles.

Oculus won the same award during last year’s E3 when the Rift was first announced. How’d they do it this year? They brought along their HD prototype which features a 1080p screen. The new screen has twice the pixel density compared to the dev kits sent out a couple months ago. This reduces the screen door effect that plagued the earlier model.
