All the hottest games at this year’s E3.

E3 2018 is here, and as usual, there are more games than any mere mortal can sort through on their own. But IGN is no mere mortal – we’re a bunch of mere mortals, checking out every game we can find and putting the hottest items on our shortlist so you can spot all the highlights in one place. Or, if you prefer to watch everything for yourself, make sure to check out our E3 2018 schedule of live streams and conferences.

Below are our top picks for the best games of E3 2018, sorted by both platform and genre for easy browsing. We also have bonus categories for best trailer and biggest surprise, among others. Each entry will link out to a recent E3 trailer, our hands-on impressions, or another key piece of E3 coverage, making it easy for you to find out why it’s worthy of our excitement, and potentially yours. Don’t forget to also vote in our Reader’s Choice awards polls, which will be live later in the week. Read on for the full list of E3 2018 nominees and be sure to check back after E3 on Friday, June 15 for our complete list of winners.

These awards are updated continuously all week long as we get more hands-on time with all the games at the show. Stay tuned as the list grows.

The Fine Print: All members of IGN’s core content are eligible to vote on IGN’s 2018 E3 Awards. A game must have two supporters to earn a nomination. Winners are determined by staff vote from the pool of nominees at the conclusion of the show. Games must have either offered hands-on gameplay, a hands-off gameplay demo, or shown simulated gameplay to be eligible for any of the Best-Of Platform or Best-Of Genre awards. Games can be nominated for a Best-Of Platform award without explicitly being shown running on that platform, due to most E3 demos running on PC development kits and not retail hardware.
