Ok, so since it won't let me make a new poll in the original thread, I'll have to make a new one for each one. This is probably good anyway, as we can split up discussions more easily. I'll still keep track of overall leaderboard/graphs in the original 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. On to 1996!
I couldn’t find a comprehensive list of every announcement at this E3, or the next handful or so on Wikipedia. We will get back to that format whenever there are resources that don’t make my head explode to look at. For now, we will just look at the major highlights.
Nintendo: 3D analog stick unveiled for N64. Announced N64 price at $249.95. Super Mario 64, Pilot Wings 64, DOOM, Goldeneye, Blast Dozer, and Shadow of the Empire. Also unveiled Game Boy Pocket. Price matched N64 with PS1 by end of event.
Sony: Major price drop of Playstation from $299 to $199 after agreeing with SEGA and Nintendo not to drop prices on hardware this year.
SEGA: Price matched their console with PS1. Nights into Dreams, Sonic X-treme,
Panzer Dragoon II Zwei
Microsoft: Early attempt at gaming began with Windows games. Close Combat, NBA Full Court Press, Hell Bender, Deadly Tide, and Monster Truck Madness all shown.
I was unable to find a list of 3rd party games announced outside of a IGN article. Hoping that E3 1997 will be easier to find. If you find something, please link it so I can update the OP information. If someone finds something, I will reset the poll and merge numbers if need be.
