E3: Nintendo dominates the post-show awards

Posted by Kim Peterson at 12:23 PM

Redmond-based Nintendo of America continues its post-Electronics Entertainment Expo euphoria this week as it dominates the Game Critics Awards for Best of E3 2006. The winners are decided by 37 media outlets covering the industry. Winners list here.

Nintendo's Wii console won the award for best in show.

People practically stampeded to try it out -- either that or they waited in line for hours. Yet most of them seemingly still came away more excited than ever by Nintendo's weird, inspired vision for how gaming could be different.

The Wii also won for best hardware and the "Wii Sports" title won best sports game. Microsoft's upcoming "Gears of War" game also did well, winning for best console game and best action game.

The hype machine's been in motion for a full year on this title, but it took an E3 hands-on multiplayer demo to prove that Gears of War packs as much substance as style.
