Who "won" E3?

Post by GuitarHero » Thu Jun 16, 2016 8:31 am

Now that all the major conferences have come and gone, I'm sure you've caught up in all the news about the companies you care about. You may have even watched it live and commented in the respective threads about it.

So who do you think "won" E3? Plus, how did you think this year overall compared to previous years? While we're at it, what was your biggest letdown too?

Personally, I thought this was Sony's year. Although the PS4K was absent, they talked about what E3 should really be about - games. Just game after game, with most being likely hits as opposed to showing a game so to fill the space. Plus the fact Crash is coming back makes it even better (although I'm wary of him being in Skylanders). That's a few years in a row they've had a solid conference I think, they're really getting it down to a science.

I definitely enjoyed this year more overall to last years, as I can't think of too many stand out things from last year with a few exceptions like No Man's Sky and Star Wars Battlefront (at the time at least, upon release not so much).

Got to say, I was a bit annoyed with the way Nintendo handled it this year. I'm not the biggest Zelda fan, but even I did like the look of Zelda. However, the other games they did show (with the exception of Pokémon) were incredibly lacklustre and didn't inspire much hope in any remaining life in the Wii U. Hopefully, their focus is now on the NX but its looking like the Wii U will be having a slow year (again) this year.

My brain says Sony for the volume and presentation of games, but my heart says Nintendo. I went for Nintendo because Zelda is just the stand out game of the show - it looks incredible, and for me at least has overshadowed everything else in the week.

Also shout out to Ubisoft for both having a great conference and for being the best e3memers.

For me, Nintendo won it pretty easily in the end. Honestly I was a little worried when they said they'd only be showing off Zelda (would it live up to the expectations I had for it? but then we got a small variety of games over the two days of the treehouse which improved the overall show) and I'm pleased to say not only did it live up to my hopes but blew them away. Zelda Breath of the Wild looks phenomenal, having watched most of the stream on the first day re Zelda words don't quite seem to be able to do it justice to how amazing it looks and how eager I am to get my hands on it next March.

Does seem like there are more 3DS games coming out than Wii U games and, bear in mind that handhelds are more popular than consoles in Japan which is probably why all the games on Nintendo handhelds.

BotW was definitely the most impressive game of the show... the problem is though that there wasn't much else aside from Pokemon Sun/Moon that looks interesting to me. Sony had a greater amount and variety of interesting looking games so I would have to say Sony.

The only things that excited me personally this year were Skyrim Remastered, The Last Guardian, Zelda and Pokemon.

But Zelda alone took the cake. It's easily one of, if not, my favourite announcements of all time. It hadn't the crowd response and we had a very minimal look into the game before but the trailer and gameplay were truly breathtaking!

Sony by far. Microsoft were as dull as ever and Nintendo tried to cover their lack of content by spending eight hours on one game.

Sony by far, they focused on the games and only the game, they didn't spend too long on each reveal and there was plenty of them.
Nintendo was no slouch either, much better than last years presentation.

Sony. Nintendo had a decent treehouse but it went on too long and the lack of things being shown (despite the numerous titles they have coming soon) hurts it too much. Sony ran trailer to trailer and almost every one was a hit offering something different, innovative and interesting. Also Sony had the killer app for me in Death Stranding so no brainer.

If the internet is to be believed, Nintendo did.

Me? I don't really know. I didn't pay as much attention to it this year as I have in previous years. What I will say though is how well received Nintendo has been this year by not doing a 'proper' broadcast and only really focusing on one main game. I hope they don't make a habit of it though and there's a return to more traditional stuff next year. I do enjoy the Directs but there's nothing quite like watching the conference live with the whoops and cheers of the audience.

Kind of misleading though given the amount of time spent on BotW and the depth spent on it, of course it'd be the most talked about game. Plus it takes more than a single game to really win E3.

I want to see the reaction Sony or Microsoft would get if they came to E3 with only one game.

I don't know, while it had stuff I'd say Bethesda's wasn't up to scratch and there were some very obvious ball drops throughout some of the others like MS. And the PC show was eton mess as expected.

Skyrim is the only game I have ever got a platinum trophy for. But no way will I buy it and play it again. Why do company's remake a game just years after its initial release. I hope it flops big time to send a message. New games not old ones tarted up

If it was Oblivion or Morrowind, now that would be something else. But yeah, its not and its just pointless especially for PC gamers.

I do appreciate what they're doing with it though, offering mod support to console owners is a good move albeit one that should have happened at the start of this generation, not a couple of years in.
