    The E3 Game Critics Awards have become a staple of the event since their beginning in 1998, and the results are now in for 2011.
    35 US publications decide on these results, so if you disagree with any of these choices (which I must say I do), then you’ll have to take it up with them.
    Some notable games that came away empty handed were Batman: Arkham City, Mass Effect 3, Tomb Raider, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Uncharted 3. Bioshock Infinite was the big winner, taking ‘Best of Show’ and triumphing in three other categories.
