Everyone loves E3 awards. Heck, even we can’t resist the urge to pick our favorite games from the trade show.

But we also like to highlight other, more standout things from the conference. That’s why we have the non-awards, which lets us celebrate (and mock) everything from the lines of the show to shameful wastes of paper.

You’ll find all of our non-awards from this year’s E3 below.
