e3-2016-games-critics-awards-2016-bannerThis year’s edition of the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo certainly had some games that people were interested in but one title stood above the rest in the eyes of the critics. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild might have had an underwhelming response from fans because of how Nintendo presented it but it took home the most awards of any game at E3 with three Best of E3 awards, including the coveted Best Of Show.
