Microsoft easily had the best conference this year.

Microsoft and I don't even own their console this gen lol.



Microsoft- 8/10
Bethesda- 7.5/10
Ubisoft- 7.5/10
Sony- 5/10
Square- 5/10
Nintendo- 4/10
EA- 3/10

Microsoft wins overall. They had a ton of games, 50 to be exact. They addressed their 1st party weakness with 5 new 1st party studios. They added more value to Gamepass. They announced a new Halo game and engine. They announced Gears 5. Forza Horizon 4 exceeded expectations, most were disappointed when they heard the UK setting rumors, but Playground is so skilled they managed to take a boring setting and make it fun. 

Can we just have a "no one exceeded mediocrity" option? Outside of EA no one was truly terrible, but what a boring, unimpressive E3 all around!

Microsoft just bribed 3rd party multiplat developers to reveal stuff at their conference. They didn't have anything good to show at all, of their own.

Nintendo was just Smash Bros, and nothing else. No talking bout Animal Crossing, Bayonetta 3, Metroid Prime 4, etc. I feel like Nintendo is going back to the drought years of the Wii U. No new games for months on end.

Sony showed the most new games, but nothing got a release date. Not even a year or a fiscal quarter. Nothing!

TL/DR All three were horrible. Sony won I guess, but when MS has nothing to show, and Nintendo only has a single game, of course you win easily.

Microsoft by far.

If you just mean the conference itself, how fun it was to watch then I guess I must admit Microsoft.

If you mean best conference game-wise, especially exclusives-wise, it's no contest: Sony.

Only real first party disappointment for me was the Nintendo conference. Besides showing no games I cared for they have their cardboard games I don't care for but they could have shown some new ones or something and nothing.

From what I watch:
MS - 9
Sony - 8
NS - 4

MS takes this for me! And that is the biggest surprise @ this e3 lol

Pocky Lover Boy! 

My favourite conferences this year were Limited Run games and the PC Show. LR's was adorable and the Q&A was very interesting, and the PC Show was the only live presentation that looked like it was made by actual professionals.

My current ranking is:

1. PC Show

2. Limited Run Games

3. Microsoft

4. Nintendo

5. Bethesda

6. Ubisoft

7. Sony

8. EA

9. Square Enix (utterly forgettable and with some really bad omissions)

You know it deserves the GOTY.
