Forums - Gaming Discussion - really annoying thing that happens EVERY e3

this topic got locked because of a side topic that was taking place in the original thread that was derailing the conversation. i spoke with the mod who locked it, and he gave me permission to repost this thread, so here it is.
It's the guy who pops up without fail when discussing who had the best e3 showing. People are discussing the good, the bad, and the EA, and you always have some guy coming out saying something like this: 
E3 IS NOT A TOURNAMENT WITH A WINNER. THE GAMERS ARE THE WINNERS. ANYONE WHO ARGUES ANY CONSOLE IS BETTER, OR THAT ONE IS SHIT, IS A COMPLETE LOSER. CONSOLES ARE NOT A COMPETITION. IF I COULD AFFORD TO, I WOULD OWN THEM ALL, SO I COULD PLAY EVERYTHING, AND EVENTUALLY I WILL.
This is a comment that I found while looking through the comments at n4g, and I wanted to share it with you guys because I see a lot of users spouting this same mentality. You can't even discuss who had the best e3 without somebody thinking they have this infallible and original answer that the gamers are the real winners. These people think they're sooooo much better than everybody else and they have the real, and only answer to, "who won e3?" In reality, this is a bullshit answer because it's going to be the same answer every year. The real issue we are discussing is did the company who had most favor with gamers keep the lead, and did the company or companies who are falling behind gain any momentum with their showing? Among other topics that go into determining who wins e3. This idea of ITS THE GAMERS is starting to wear on me because it's not a real answer, and it kills discussion. 
If you're going to spout something like that, at least don't act like everybody is beneath you because they aren't buying into THE GAMERS WIN bullcrap. Of course we reap the benefits of all of this, everybody knows that, but we want to discuss which company is coming out of this with most gamers attention. It's such a simple concept and you people are missing it.

I'll post the same thing then:

Yeah no kidding sounds like a beauty contest to me.

"There is no winner here, we are all beautiful in the inside and that's what matters!". *fake smile*


"I've Underestimated the Horse Power from Mario Kart 8, I'll Never Doubt the WiiU's Engine Again"

Lol I so agree, every year we get tons of brilliant games so gamers win.

However we just want to know what conferences people think were better+more suprising, and "gamers win" convo comes up.

Well that paraphrase is still half true; In the end, we as consumers are "winning" (although not really. E3 usually disappoints).

With that being said there will always be one company that takes or maintains the lead.
It's all subjective though

Honestly, the fact that there's actually argument over who won is kinda good. It means the big 3 satisfied their fans.

I very much agree with this sentiment. I do think all three did a very good job..

"GAMERS WIN" is every bit as valid an opinion as anything else. It seems kind of silly to suggest that it is not. The only dispute would be with context and if it's relevant to the discussion at hand. If the question is, "who won E3," then it's fine. If the question is, "which company will see the most economic impact from their E3 presentation," then it is not.

Regardless, it seems an odd thing to get upset about, especially when so many people are over-exaggerating specific games simply because they're exclusive to their favorite platform. That's much more annoying than someone trying to be optimistic.

Trucks wasn't the one who locked it, I was

But still, some good points you're making there. I approve.
