Maybe this guy was right. With exception to only a handful of non-applicable categories (i.e. "handhelds"), the PC was home to more E3 gaming awards this year than any other system, including "best console game." (Go, figure!)
Id Software's Rage was the big winner of the show, being named "Best Action Game" and game with the "Best Graphics." It was also named "Best Console Game," even though it's being developed on and for PC, alongside its console release.
Interestingly, Rage didn't take "Best PC Game." That belonged to Portal 2, as was the award for "Best Action/Adventure Game." As expected, PC exclusives Star Wars: The Old Republic and Civilization V, two highly anticipated titles, were named "Best Role Playing Game" and "Best Strategy Game," respectively.
Rounding out the list, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (also on consoles) took honors for "Best Online Multiplayer," and "Best Racing Game" went to Need for Speed Hot Pursuit (also on consoles). In total, PC games represented a respectable 53 per cent of all awards, more than any other single system.
PC didn't win 'em all, however. Nintendo's 3DS took the overall "Best of Show" award for its pretty frickin' cool "3D that doesn’t require glasses" technology.
