Not Nintendo. Not even with Zelda.

If the media has moved the goalposts out such that Zelda no longer qualifies as a big game?

 

Yeah, i can see that happening, actually :/

I think part of Nintendo's problem is presentation.  Last year they showed four awesome new games, yet the show overall was pretty slow.  Then you look at Microsoft, who is credited by most for "winning" E308 based on the shock value of the FFXIII announcement alone.  Everybody seems to care more about being entertained rather than recieving actual meaningful announcements, something I think is pretty sad.

I still think Nintendo had the best show from last year

I'm inclined to agree, but for most people (including most journalists, it seems) it wasn't "exciting" enough.

And I'm not even much of a Metroid fan.  >_>

*ducks*

Edit:

Oh yeah, Sony announced the Last Guardian last E3.  I knew I was forgetting something.  They were probably about neck and neck with Nintendo for me last year.

Its not only that.  It also ties into the heavy media bias.  I know I know, a lot of people are going to start screaming bloody murder because they think the media isn't obsessing over the HD consoles enough.  But when you really look at game coverage, any game coverage, it comes down to the fact that 'major' game magazines/online sources claim there's 'not enough core games' for Wii and DS all the time.  Yet what do they do?  They completely ignore nearly 99% of games on those systems, while hyping up everything on the HD consoles.

The same thing happens at E3.  Unless Nintendo announces something that totally conforms to the 'medias' pre-concieved views of what a good game is, they aren't interested.  And the internet hate machine follows suit.  Case in point, Nintendo can announce a new IP and the media totally ignores it or even makes fun of it, such as was the case for a number of past games like Pikmin, Animal Crossing, Nintendogs and the Wii itself.  The only reason the media pays attention to these series now adays is because they are making millions.

Its as if the media only cares about Mario, Zelda, Metroid and anything that looks like a Teen rated game (aka Sin and Punishment 2, Xenoblade, Last Story, etc).



Six upcoming games you should look into:

It is very highly expected to be shown, it loses shock value like that.  Shock value is important because Nintendos presentation style is suicide inducing with how dull it is.  I get the feeling they are going to front Metroid a bit more as well which isn't going to wow people greatly either.

 

At least with people claiming Killzone 3 or Resistance 3 for PS3 and stuff like that we don't really have any evidence to those being there so would still be a surprise to many if they were.

Imo if the games that u want gets announced then the gamers win. If Sony announces like inFamous 2, Killzone 2 Resistance 3 or new games thats interesting then thats a win for me, don´t care what others announce.



 

there are no doubt sony are winner



Final Fantasy VIII-HD Version For PS3

Hah, everyone but hc gamers are winners. Especially casual gamers.

I would figure Zelda's still going to have a good deal of shock value, even knowing that its coming, because we have no idea in what form it might arrive. Granted that could help or hurt Nintendo depending on exactly what Zelda is, but whatever it is, it'll be surprising in its own right.
