[ Game -> Update ] - More info on Game: Fallout 3

Gamespy has compiled their annual E3 awards, and Bioshock came in first in the categories Best of Show, Xbox 360 Game of Show and PC Game of Show. Fallout 3 came in second in all three categories.

Matt Grandstaff, Bethesda community manager, didn't seem to take it to hard, and congratulated Bioshock on his company blog:

"Congrats to Bioshock for beating us in all three categories. Still, lots of really good games on that list that we’re excited to play ourselves, so we’re thrilled to be on the list."

Fallout 3 got a few awards as well. Also from the Bethesda Blog:
  • RPG Fan awards Fallout 3 “Best Overall RPG of E3 2007″
  • Yahoo Games lists Fallout 3 within its Top 10 Showstoppers
  • Kotaku has Fallout 3 on third place for their “Best of Show” award
  • Over on UGO, Rusty gives the E3 crown to Fallout 3
  • Game Lyfe declares Fallout 3 “Best RPG of E3″.

most of the other commentators placed Fallout 3 behind Mass Effect and a few even had Fable 2 ahead of it.

What the fuck...

They're handing out awards for the best PR in a PR festival?

Who fired the rockets on this handbasket?

It seems Bethesda needs to beef up the next-gen factor in Fallout 3 if it intends to sell the game with profit. Bowing to the core fans is gonna scare away their primary target audience. aiee

Beth/Todd are making a mistake...there are NOT making anything new. How can you get an award for copying the same crap you did the previous year with Oblivain with Guns

Your avatar looks like Vault Boy watching the candle of Fallout 3 be extinguished.

The red cloak symbolizes the cultishness of Fallout Fandom.


Did I miss this being explained before?
