gamescom: FIFA 12 “Best Console Game”

Yes you read the title correctly, because before gamescom 2011 has even been opened to the general public FIFA 12 has been crowned “Best Console Game” by an independent jury of gaming media experts. Quite an achievement so early in the show, i’m sure you’ll agree.

Here’s a run down of all the awards handed out at gamescom so far and EA in general have done very well indeed.

Best of gamescom: Battlefield 3 - Electronic Arts

Best Hardware or Hardware Accessories: Playstation Vita – Sony Computer Entertainment.

Best Console Game: FIFA 12 – EA SPORTS 

Best Mobile Game: Uncharted: Golden Abyss - Sony Computer Entertainment

Best Online Game: Star Wars The Old Republic – Electronic Arts

Best PC Game: Diablo III - Blizzard Entertainment

Best Browser Game: The Sims Social Electronic Arts

Best Family Game: Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

So the gaming media love it, Lukas Podolski loves it, but how do you think FIFA 12 is looking at gamescom 201 so far?

    I used to like Fifa games, but i lost hope in the series.

    latest improvment were all about player physics(imact wat) as if it was a fighting simulation.

    EA HeLLo??!!! Football is about Tactics = A.I ? Can we have that please and stop paying journalist and marketing your CRAP.

    lol yea EA definitely gets some things handed to them suspiciously easy in some cases.. But battlefield is going to be ridiculous, really good showing, will go down as the best FPS ever made to date. Most photo realistic game I’ve seen.
    I have high hopes for fifa 12 after the latest video. I just hope it lives up to the hype!

  • Hihi

    Yeah Podolski :))

    FIFA looks dissapointing this year… PES looks awesome..

    All I keep thinking about when they mention the impact engine is how it is gonna look when I try to steam roll a stationary player.

    @merrit when you catch them right, it’s amazing.

    @MuratX I guess you won’t have to worry about spending your money of FIFA12 then.
