Game Critics Awards: The Best of E3 08

It wouldn't be E3 without any subsequent fanboy bickering over which game or console "won" the show. Games journalists like to bicker, too, but they also like to come to a consensus every now and then. Thus, the Games Critics Awards, an independent coalition of 36 US games journalists from various media outlets, has just released their Best of E3 2008 list. Any game present in hands-on playable form was eligible - so if you're wondering why Fat Princess isn't Best of Show, there you go.

Everyone from Popular Science to your humble ol' GamesRadar participated, and this is what they had to say:
