Phil Spencer recently said that Microsoft's E3 2019 would be as big as ever. This was an article on the front page of vgchartz. I couldn't help but notice a bunch of comments with people getting excited. Just what was there to get excited about? The 2018 show didn't do anything for me. They didn't announce any big new exclusives. The games that they did announce were either multiplatform, the same three games as always, or underwhelming looking.

"But what about Battletoads?"
Rare is making it. They botched Sea of Thieves.
"But what about Crackdown 3?"
Crackdown 2 got a 70 on Metacritic. That's about the same score that No Man's Sky got at launch.
Are people excited because it has become the place for 3rd party multiplats to make their announcements, or are you guys genuinely excited for Microsoft? If so why?
I'm not trying to hate on a particular platform here. I mean, if MS announced Fable 4, and two or three promising new IPs from good development teams, I'd be excited. But I just haven't been a fan since 2011.
