Another E3 has come and gone. Were you left feeling underwhelmed, as seems to be the concensus this year, or were there enough announcements to keep you excited for the next year’s worth of games? We’ve collected some of our thoughts below.
Q: What was the best thing you saw at E3?
Paul (@spaulsandhu): I loved The Last of Us gameplay demo. While everyone was frothing at the mouth over Watch Dogs (which looks pretty solid, but man reel it in a bit people) I was pretty surprised at just how tense The Last of Us felt. It felt like it was a survival horror game except that it focused way more on the actual survival aspect of the genre. That gameplay demo alone just shot The Last of Us to the top of my fall MUST BUY list. Naughty Dog is pretty spectacular.
Q: You can erase one game from E3 from existence. Which one?
D.J. (@metaly): New Super Mario Bros. U. Yes, it looked great in HD. Yes, a new Nintendo console should have a new Mario game at launch, but I don’t want it to be this one. For one, if the Wii U really does come out this Fall, we’ll have just had New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the 3DS a few months earlier. And while I’m looking forward to that, the “New” offshoot of Mario games is about as safe as you can get. The Wii U should launch with a Mario that’s as exciting and new as 3D Land, Galaxy, or, dare I say it… Super Mario 64.
Now it’s your turn! What was the best thing you saw at E3, or let us know what let you down the most. (Don’t worry, we’re here for you.)
