Alright people, on to 1997! I will continue updating the main thread as results of each of these polls conclude.

Main source

E3 1997

Please vote on which company had the best showings of games. We are NOT limited to just 1st party games like we pretty much were for 1996. Going forward I hope to have a healthy list of third-party companies! I will NOT be including exclusive games under the company whose device they released on going forward, as the point of all this is to see which company has had the best E3 each year, regardless of if they own the hardware or not.

Also, just like with the 1995 vote, I can only include 10 options. I will, however, put the ones that didn't make the cut below here just so you know and you can comment your vote for them if you'd like. Below is a list of notable games announced/shown.

Sony: Crash Bandicoot 2, MediEvil, MLB '98, Spawn: The Eternal, Steel Reign

Valve: Half-Life

Epic Games: Unreal

Ritual Entertainment: SiN

Ion Storm: Daikatana

Bethesda: Prey (1997)

Activision/ID Software: Quake II

Lucas Art: Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II

Rare: Goldeneye 007, Conker’s Quest (eventually renamed Twelve Tales: Conker 64), Banjo Kazooie

Konami: Metal Gear Solid

Nintendo: F-Zero 64, Star Fox 64, Zelda 64 was shown slightly.

Titus Interactive: Superman 64

Namco: Time Crisis

Capcom: Resident Evil 2

SEGA: Panzer Dragoon Saga, Sonic 3D Blast

Square: Final Fantasy VII

3D Realms: Duke Nukem Forever

  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Rare and it isn't even close. All 3 turned out to be stellar games.



This list of games, this was a blockbuster E3.

Square won, but that kind of means Sony won.

I almost put them on the poll for kicks and giggles, but I feared people would troll the vote and somehow they would win that E3 lol.

That's how I voted as well, though I never played Conker and I remember Banjo Tooie way more than the original. Was Conker fun?

Agreed! Far better to me than 95' or 96'.

Yeah, but I really am focusing more on the developers and owners of the IP rather than who threw money to get timed exclusives.
