The biggest new game announced at E3 this year is also the trade show’s biggest winner.

Developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by EA, the giant mech shooter Titanfall won a record six accolades from the Game Critics Awards, an independent group of journalists from 30 leading North American outlets (including Yahoo! Games).

The frantic first-person shooter, which releases next year for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, took home the big prize -- Best in Show -- along with awards for Best PC Game, Best Original Game, Best Console Game, Best Action Game and Best Online Multiplayer Game. The game’s six awards break the previous single-show record held by DOOM III, which took home five Game Critics awards back in 2002.

Other notable winners include the Oculus Rift, which beat out both the PS4 and the Xbox One to take home the Best Hardware award, and Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs, which managed to beat out a very tough, crowded field to take home the Best Action/Adventure award.
