E3 2011 is over, all of the biggest gaming news of the year is in the bag, and our Los Angeles soldiers are returning to the UK shattered, slightly chubbier - and thrilled by the prospect of what they've witnessed.
Here, the editors of the UK's biggest games magazines give CVG their opinion of this year's standouts - and name the one title that will live longest in their memory.
Jon Hicks: Editor, Official Xbox Magazine - Bioshock Infinite
"I'm sure I will be just one of many who say that Bioshock Infinite is the game of E3 2011, but it wasn't a runaway winner. The show floor was packed with impressive titles that are coming to 360. In particular, Battlefield 3 and Elder Scrolls: Skyrim were both hugely impressive - but they're maxing out their respective genres; Infinite impressed while still maintaining a sense of mystery as to what it'll offer.
"The demo looked spectacular in every sense, and illustrated a game with monumental ambitions: gigantic levels; combat that follows you on ground and in the air; the ability to reshape the level structure on the fly; a meticulously detailed world and a carefully intellectual storyline.
"This isn't a spooky funhouse where people attack you on sight, it's a huge and rather disturbing place that I can't wait to explore myself. I'd even go so far as to suggest it might actually be deserving of that most over-used description... 'epic'."
