Forums - Gaming Discussion - All Time E3 Thread

Hello, I enjoy, like many of you, voting on who I thought won each E3. I also think it would be fun to have an ongoing leaderboard thread for E3’s (this one and all the past ones). To that end, I’m going to be updating this thread regularly by having votes on various E3’s from the past. I will start with the very first one, outlying games shown by each company. If you’d like to vote that would be great! I will plan on changing out which E3 we are voting on every so often after enough people have voted.

I am starting with the first and will work my way towards the more modern ones. I’ll be including every major presenter, not just the big three. For simplicity and speed, I will be using other resources, such as WIKI, in order to list off things that were shown/unveiled/announced. Also, since the poll limits me to 10 choices, I will have to cut out some presentations. I will try to focus on studios that announced games that were less significant, historically, or on systems that were short-lived.

This is now the main hub/thread for tracking total results.

You can post now, by the way! Hope everyone enjoys this! My goal is for us to finally have an ongoing E3 leaderboard for VGchartz so we can compare all time! :)



I was born 2 weeks after E3 1995, so I'm not exactly too sure about who won it.

I find it difficult to rate previous E3 shows, given we know how each game turned out. I voted Square in this instance, because Chrono turned out to be the best rpg of all-time. But back in the day, prior to playing Chrono, I may have voted differently because I wouldn't have had the knowledge on just how great of a game it was going to be.  Just an interesting thread/concept.



Well Nintendo obviously won if they announced Virtual Boy in 95. System was such a beast.



Atari won! Jag 4 life, beetches!

Seriously, in terms of hype, Sony won, though Nintendo was close. With one number Sony gave Sega a good kick.in the junk.

In terms of games, Squaresoft followed by Nintendo.

Looking at the list of exhibitors makes me feel old. Atari and Acclaim were prominent, Activision and Ubisoft were nowhere to be seen. Crystal Dynamics was its own company instead of an Eidos/Square Enix subsidiary. EA... still sucked.

Sony won it.  It's fair to say that no company has ever "won" E3 at a level that Sony won 1995 in any year since and no company will ever approach it.  They went from nothing to destroying Sega's console future and positioning themselves to lead the industry for the next 25 years on the back of that "$299" announcement.

Other companies have had better lineups, better hardware, cooler presentations.  But "$299" will forever be the quintessential E3 moment where everything changed.  It was basically the birthdate of modern gaming.

I believe you can make telephone calls with the Jaguar controller.  First smartphone device confirmed.  

I actually wanted one but good thing parents weren't having anything.  I believe it had about 2 good games.  Alien vs Predator and Tempest.  There might have been a decent mech game also.
