BioShock Infinite tops E3 Game Critics Awards

Following E3, various outlets--Shacknews included--are invited every year to vote on the best of E3. After careful deliberation, the winners have been decided! Irrational Games' BioShock Infinite took home the top prizes, including Best of Show, Best Original Game and Best PC Game. Unexpectedly, Bethesda's Elder Scrolls game took home the award for Best Console Game.

PlayStation Vita beat out the Nintendo WiiU for Best Hardware, likely boosted by the strong showing of Sound Shapes (which also won Best Handheld Game and Best Casual Game). Nintendo didn't exactly get snubbed, though. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword took the prize as Best Motion Game, besting the new efforts of PlayStation Move and Kinect.
