“The Wait Begins”

With another E3 behind us, there certainly wasn’t a shortage of invigorating announcements and promising looking projects to come out of the industry this past week. From the solidly crafted conferences, to the wealth of new games that received formal reveals, this year’s E3 was overflowing with reasons to be excited for the coming months. With so many superb looking experiences showcased during the expo, this year’s Best of E3 slate is rather stacked. However, for all the compelling titles that shared the spotlight during the last few days, none caught my eye as much as Guerrilla Games’ immensely impressive Horizon Zero Dawn.

For the second consecutive year in a row, I’m thrilled to present my E3 2016 Game of Show Award to Horizon Zero Dawn and the talented team that’s making it a reality.
