The Game Critics Awards has announced the winners of its 2019 E3 awards. Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII Remake took home the overall Game of Show award, while the PlayStation 4 game also won Best Console Game and Best Role-Playing Game. Coincidentally, Amazon has a terrific offer right now that lets you get FFVII Remake for $42, although that promotion could end soon.

The much-anticipated remake was the only title with three wins; Bethesda's Doom Eternal followed with two wins; one for Best PC Game and Best Action Game. Looking by publisher, Square Enix led the way with three overall wins, with Bethesda and Activision following with two each. By platform, PlayStation 4 led the way with 12 wins, while Xbox One and PC had 10 each, and Google Stadia with 4.

The Outer Worlds won Best Original Game, while the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller took home the away for Best Hardware/Peripheral. John Wick Hex won for Best Strategy Game, while Cyberpunk 2077 picked up a special commendation for best graphics.

Watch Dogs Legion won Best Action/Adventure Game, while Call of Duty: Modern Warfare won for Best Online Multiplayer. Destiny 2, meanwhile, won the award for Best Ongoing Game.

The winners were decided by a vote from a judges panel that include games media outlets from around the world, including GameSpot. To be considered, a game must be shown in a playable state at E3 2019 for a minimum of five minutes.
