E3 2019 has wrapped up, and with that comes the deliberations for the Game Critics Awards 2019. The winners are based on votes from a total of 64 global media outlets and influencers.
The highly anticipated remake of Final Fantasy VII takes the most awards (three), including Best of Show. Taking the runner-up spot is Doom Eternal with two awards: Best PC Game, and Best Action Game. Obsidian’s upcoming RPG The Outer Worlds takes an award for Best Original Game after receiving the most nominations (four).
