Watch_Dogs Won Many E3 Awards, Apparently

All of which are completely real and in no way incorrect, as of now anyway. [NOTE: This video has been updated to remove our previously erroneous inclusion in the awards list.]

Awesome... This is at least the third time this has happened this E3. It's just too funny that it's in an actual video. You can't really just delete that like Sony and CDProject Red did.

Jeff casually stated on the Bombcast after E3 that Watch_Dogs was "probably" his Game of the Show. Weird that it isn't attributed to him and only him.

Huh. That's... is that quote farming? Is that what they're doing here?

Also, at that end bit where they show all the different boxes and systems it's on and what not, I find it... well, unfortunately, I don't find it that odd that the Wii U isn't mentioned.

And it's not like a lot of them sound any better. "Best Original Game - Machinima" (as opposed to best game game based on licensed material)? "Innovative" (how descriptive)? The game looks good, but the marketing doesn't.

I was under the impression that publishers needed explicit or some sort of verbal permission to use quotes this way.

Love that right next to the Giant Bomb award Newsarama said "kick-ass" while below that they are quoted again as having said "most kick-ass hero."

Don't know what specifically they're intending to cite for that award, but it's a pretty gross practice to basically falsify an award from an outlet. Maybe you could infer it from something Jeff said, but that's still a stretch. I can imagine a weasely little marketing guy grasping at every straw he can to be able to say the game won X awards.

Jeff said he liked it once, which apparently overrules everything.

Maybe it was said by someone verbally on one of the E3 podcasts, and they ran with it.

What the...

That's weird that they would use Giant Bomb for promoting a game by having a fictional award in the trailer. Giant Bomb never has Best of E3 awards!

Ouch, poor old Wii U doesn't even get a mention on the pre-order splash screen. So a non-existant Giant Bomb award now exists but an entire games console doesn't?

At least I'm pretty sure that the Wii U exists or has someone from Watch Dogs hacked my brain into thinking that the pile of dust under my TV is actually a games console and stolen a couple of hundred quid from my bank account?
