The ShortList Best Of E3 awards

hero_gamescreen.jpg

We've seen a lot of games this week. That should be obvious, but we've said it just in case it wasn't clear. More importantly we've seen a lot of real quality. Games that will excite you. Games that will scare you. And games that will tire you out (remind us why we thought scheduling Dance Central 2 and Just Dance 3 playtests back-to-back would be a good idea). Here are our nominations for Best Of E3 2011. The winners will be announced tomorrow.
