Edge has awarded Halo 3 its award for Interactive Innovation at the Edinburgh Festival earlier today.
Bungie’s opus shooter staved off competition from the likes of Grand Theft Auto IV, Portal, Rock Band, Super Mario Galaxy and Wii Fit.
“We hand out this accolade to the title released in the last 12 months that does most to further the creative culture of gaming – in other words, to mark out new directions for the form,” says the piece.
Well done, Bungie.
