Diablo 3: Best PC Title at Gamescom


The nominations were announced days before the show, and the winners have been proclaimed after just one day of the show. (why it’s almost enough to make you think the “judging” was done well with Golden Globes-like integrity, rather than being based on the versions of the games actually shown at Gamescom!) At any rate, a winner is Diablo III!

The show may run until 21 August, but Gamescom’s very own “expert jury” has already picked the best of the best in 8 categories.

As the headline suggests, Battlefield 3 was awarded the ‘best of Gamescom’, with other winners announced in categories like ‘best console game’ and ‘best PC game’.

I’m sure this prize will occupy a very small niche in Blizzard’s extensive trophy displays, but it’s something for Diablo III to be proud of, at least.


Update: @Diablo is urging you to vote for D3 as the best title from Gamescom. If they win they’ll release the beta (eventually). You can vote here.

  1. I suppose it’s something for the Blizz marketing folks to put on posters and trailers. Neat, I guess?

  2. aww flux, why always so sceptical?

  3. so the best game at gamescom was a demo that doesn’t even represent the actual game ?
    if they aren’t going to show a current version of the game then it shouldn’t even have been eligible
     
     

  4. Flux, whose side are you on, anyway?  This is a Diablo fan site, and a lot of your comments lately have been really negative.  I’m not advocating giving praise where it isn’t due, but I find the fact that a game that most of us are really interested in (that’s still not even in Beta stage) wins “best PC game” at a game show to be pretty frickin’ awesome, and it shows how much the press and gaming public in general are looking forward to its impending release.  How ’bout you get with the program and be happy about someone giving Diablo 3 some praise, even if you can’t?

  5. libradude, He’s talking about giving awards for games at a show after just 1 day.  Obviously he feels awards should be dolled out at the end of the event. Is that wrong? I think the fact he’s dedicated 1,000 of hours working on a Diablo 3 site suggests he is with the ‘program’.

    Also, reading to the end you’ll see …. “I’m sure this prize will occupy a very small niche in Blizzard’s extensive trophy displays, but it’s something for Diablo III to be proud of, at least.”

  6. The fact that he’s dedicated thousands of hours working on a Diablo site suggests he might be burnt out and that someone with a little more objectivity might be better to report the news without bias. 

    I appreciate all the work Flux has done, don’t get me wrong; I come here first to get the latest updates.  His snarky comments and backhanded compliments have just seemed to me to be more than necessary of late.  I know I’m not the only one who has noticed.  I too think it’s a little premature to hand out awards on the first day of a game show, but they did, and “we” won one.  Yet he still comes off as totally uninterested.  I just wonder what it’s going to take to get Flux excited about anything at this point. 

    I totally expect his report that D3 Beta has started to be titled “It’s finally here, and most of us won’t get in!”

    I guess I’m just saying that it would be nice to see Flux happy and excited about what he’s doing again. Hopefully soon. 😀

      Are you superduper excited over some meaningless award give at a convention? To a game nominated before the event even opened? Are you also applauding that cookie monster game that won an award there? Is this a big issue? Really?

  7. Flux’s comment reminds me of that one time when a u.s. president received the Nobel Peace Prize for giving cool speeches about all the amazing things he’ll never do.

  8. How much did they promi$e the media for this award ?
