Nintendo. Their direct was short and to the point and stacked with content. They've come a long way since the Wii days.

They weren't so bad during the Wii days. The Wii U days on the other hand, ugh. >.<

Have to give it to the big N. There announcements plus Banjo Kazooie in smash is just wonderful.

Banjo in Smash I thought was just a late April Fool's joke.

I thought wrong. ^^

Maybe. Personally I'm happy with ports, remasters, new stuff, old stuff, whatever. If it's a game I want to play and it's on the hardware I want it on, it's a win. There were several games that I can't wait to buy or buy again!

Don't get me wrong, I totally agree with what you are saying. As long as something comes along that interests you that is great.

I just find it strange that an E3 based presentation primed around so much port/ remaster content is lauded as one of the greatest things to happen to E3. Honestly, that speaks volumes to me with how irrelevant E3 is becoming more than anything else tbqh.

But yeah, there is some good stuff coming to the Switch

That reads like you have very selective perception. It would probably help if you typed out all the games that aren't ports/remasters, plus their release dates.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Yea, Nintendo had the best presentation, pacing, actual gameplay, actual launch dates, etc.

Thinking about it, it was probably one of Nintendo's best directs overall.

I think you can find better directs that weren't comprised mostly of ports and remasters. 

Mostly ports and remasters???

Astral Chain

Dark Crystal

Pokemon

Breath of the Wild 2

Luigi's Mansion 3

Panzer Dragoon

Animal Crossing

Cadence of Hyrule

Contra 

Fire Emblem

Daemon X Machine

No More Heroes III

Seems to me there was plenty of new content to be excited about.  Now if you personally don't care for those above mentioned games, fair enough.  But acting as though most everything was a port or remaster seems misleading.  



Nintendo, nonstop game announcements, Collection of mana was a very pleasant surprise, The Witcher as well and that BOTW sequel was the cherry on top.

The majority of those games were announced/shown at previous Nintendo directs/Conferences.  Just list the games that were newly announced for this E3.

Well it is better than spending half of it on Smash :p 

And we got awesome trailers and/or gameplay from Luigi Mansion 3, FE Three Houses, Astral Chain, NMH3, Animal Crossing New Horizons and Sequel to BOTW.  

Sure there was lots of ports and remaster but we cant ignore the games I mentioned above. And there is always something special when Switch gets ports compared to XB1 and PS4. And that is the portability function.



Pocky Lover Boy!

I would, but I don't see the sense in doing such.  Something like LM3 we knew was coming, but this was the first time we saw actual gameplay footage.  It was a very good E3 by Nintendo.  There is a lot of stuff coming, hence why I don't get the negativity.  In particular Astral Chain looks really good.  

Overall it seems like moving goalposts to me.  The original claim was everything was ports/remasters...  and now it is there weren't any surprises.  Which is funny, because BotW 2 was a surprise.  Same with NMHIII, Dark Crystal, Panzer.  Either way, the question is who had the best E3.  And it was Nintendo.  They had the most games, with the most release dates with the most gameplay demos.  It was a very nice E3.
