'Resident Evil 2' Remake, 'Spider-Man' Win Big at Game Critics E3 Awards

Resident Evil 2

This year's Electronic Entertainment Expo was jam-packed with gaming goodness. And yet somehow a select handful of judges were able to vote on this year's favorite, with a surprise title managing to win it all with Best of Show.

Based on the awards given out, Capcom's remake of Resident Evil 2 took home the coveted award. This is actually a bigger deal than you might think since this marks the first time in history that a Capcom game had managed to win such an award. You can see more details in the tweet below, provided by a member of Capcom's PR team, Stephanie Palermo.

The game really stunned us during its presentation so it's definitely an award well earned. Congrats, team.

Other games also cleaned house at the show this year. Dreams, Media Molecule's forthcoming game-creation project, took home Best Original Game; while Marvel's Spider-Man won best overall console game.

In fact, Spidey cleaned house on a number of awards this year, as noted by Insomniac Games' own James Stevenson below.
