Titanfall Leads E3 Best of Show Nominations

While it is no surprise that Titanfall was a tremendous success at E3 this year, it is surprising to note that The Game Critics Awards announced six separate nominations for the game, which breaks the record (previously held at five nods with The Last of Us). Best in Show, Best Original Game, Best Multiplayer, Best PC Game, Best Action Game, and Best Console Game. Watch_Dogs followed with five nods and Destiny has four.
