Hardcore Gamer’s Best of E3 2016 Awards

E3 2016 ended up being a surprisingly bustling E3. Even though most of this year’s E3 didn’t actually take place at E3, the entire week was jam-packed with games, games and some more games to be safe. While there were a lot of leaks as per usual in this rapid fire internet age, quite a bit was kept under wraps and the press conferences offered a stream of surprises. Those who actually set foot in the LACC were able to play many of them and darn if they weren’t impressive. Next year’s E3 will be very interesting as it will likely feature the NX, Scorpio and Neo, but this was a solid E3 full of solid games.

We went through the trenches at E3 to bring you back coverage for practically everything that was on the show floor. Of course none of that matters if there aren’t clear winners, so we’ve put our heads together and awarded the very best E3 2016 had to offer.
