Bellevue’s Valve Software cleaned up at E3 with “Portal 2,” the next iteration of its hit puzzle game.
In its Best of E3 award competition, publisher IGN gave “Portal 2” awards for best Xbox 360 game, best PS3 game and best PC game, plus best puzzle game.
I’ll bet “Portal 2” would have won best Mac game as well, if IGN had that category.
If it weren’t for Disney’s “Epic Mickey,” it might have won best Wii game as well.
Bellevue’s 5th Cell’s “Super Scribblenauts” won IGN’s best DS game.
