The Best Games Of GamesCom

These aren't the games we think are the best of GamesCom. They're the games that an "independent expert jury" has deemed to be the official best in show.

This expert jury was made up of representatives from the German press, namely Michael Trier (IDG Entertainment), Petra Fröhlich (Computec Media), Christian Bigge (Computerbild Online), Harald Hesse (G+J Entertainment Media ), Oliver Hartmann (Brot und Spiele) and Bernhard Schneider (Müller Ltd. & Co.), none of which we've ever heard of, but all of which sound suitably German to be handing out the awards!

And the winners were:

BEST GAME: Gran Turismo 5

BEST HARDWARE: PlayStation Move

BEST CONSOLE GAME: Gran Turismo 5

BEST HANDHELD GAME: Super Scribblenauts

BEST ONLINE GAME: Guild Wars 2

BEST PC GAME: Crysis 2

BEST FAMILY GAME: Kirby's Epic Yarn

    Gran Turismo 5 did alright, all we need now is an australian release date.

      Europe has confirmed that November 3rd is the release date for their territories...

    I'm looking forward to getting my hands on Crysis 2!

    My computer back in 2008 handled the first one pretty well but I have a feeling 2 years difference will really make the sequel a strain on my goold old CPU.

      Most reports have said Crysis 2 should have about the same requirements as the original, and even run better then it due to better code optimisation. Your rig should stand up fine :-)

    Guild Wars 2 was the standout for me.

    I was hoping for some Dead Space 2 love. Crysis is looking nice though
