E3 can be summed up in one word for me: Expensive. The past few E3’s have really left me feeling… not disappointed, but wishing there was even more. This year, two new consoles and a ton of games were announced. Both the Xbox One -and- the PS4 look great to me.
Like Graev, I really don’t participate in the console bashing. I want fun games; I buy consoles with fun games. I own a Wii U, and I will eventually own both the PS4 and Xbox One. For now, I’m sold on the PS4 being the first of the two consoles I buy, with the Xbox One coming as soon as I can squeeze a few hundred more dollars out of my paycheck. My reason for going PS4 first? Microsoft lost me when they took their emphasis off gaming. It’s that simple.
Nintendo was my overall winner based purely on what excites me the most. I think Nintendo is really trying to prove they understand that everything they do should be catering to their fans. Just look at the list of games they showed off:
- Super Smash Bros.
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
- Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
- Yoshi’s New Island
- Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
- Mario kart 8
- Sonic Lost World
- ‘A New Title’ developed by Monolith
- Super Mario 3D World
- The Legend of Zelda: WindWaker HD
