Digital Trends announces Top Games of E3 2018

PORTLAND, Ore., June 12, 2018 -- Digital Trends, the world's largest independently owned technology review site, announced the winners of its annual Top Games of E3 2018. After evaluating the most anticipated games and hardware from the annual E3 gaming expo, Digital Trends editors selected winners for the following categories: Best New IP, Best Visuals, Best New Feature Mechanic, Best in Show, and Editor’s Choice. Cyberpunk 2077, a first-person RPG that pushes worldbuilding to new levels with its playable dystopian future, led the list of top games with Best in Show.

“We didn’t see new console hardware at E3 2018, which meant game publishers had to go big on hot new games,” explains Digital Trends Senior Editor Matt Smith. “That’s exactly what they did. All the usual suspects were there, from Fortnite to Super Smash Bros., but we also saw original new games like our Best in Show, Cyberpunk 2077. In fact, of the four games that won an award from Digital Trends, three were based on original IP. That’s quite an upset.”
