Awards

E3 2021: it didn’t quite blow our minds — but it did dig deep enough to leave a scorching headache.

After four solid days of hit-and-miss reveals and ambivalent feedback, the curtain has been closed for the year, with only the awards show left to signal its departure. And boy — what an ending. Maybe not quite the storybook ending most of us hand in mind — but an ending nonetheless. Of course, the lack of physical interaction did mean most awards were celebrated with cheap confetti and party poppers. But it was something, right? Although incredibly watered down and somewhat textureless — it was still an E3 worth commemorating.

As per the usual routine, E3 ended with its official awards show, in which it revealed a slew of well-deserved prizes over a snappy presentation. But what awards were handed out tonight — and which game snagged the most attention overall? Well, let’s break it down, from the most anticipated indie title to the best showcase of 2021.

 

Most Anticipated:

Ubisoft Game: Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope

Gearbox Software Game: Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands

Xbox & Bethesda Game: Halo: Infinite

Square Enix Game: Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

Well, that’s it for another year. E3 will be back live and on a physical platform for 2022, providing nothing interferes, of course. But what did you think of this year’s event?
