The Game Critic Awards announced the Best of E3 2013 nominees today, and Respawn’s Titanfall has landed itself in six of the 15 categories—including Best of Show.

In addition to Best of Show, Titanfall was nominated for Best Original Game, Best Console Game, Best PC Game, Best Action Game, and Best Online Multiplayer.

Titanfall‘s biggest competitor? Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs, which scored five nominations: Best of Show, Best Original Game, Best Console Game, Best Action/Adventure Game, and Best Online Multiplayer.
