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! 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.

To clarify with a hypothetical example: As long as the studio is independent (such as Platinum), then their games will count towards their own presentation and not the hardware company. Rare is a weird situation, as I believe (based on what I’ve read), Nintendo only ever owned 49% of their stock, making them a second party studio, until Microsoft bought them, during this era. Because of this, they will remain separate for now.

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 (if there be any) 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. If I’ve missed something, or I have put something in the wrong area, it is UNINTENTIONAL. Please forgive me and I will make the changes as soon as possible.

SEGA: Dreamcast out in Japan already, coming out in the USA in September and shown at E3 with price point of $199. Games: NFL 2k

Sony: Next generation PlayStation sort of demonstrated with “an interactive kiosk with an emulator demonstrating hardware” and the goal of releasing it in 2000. Ape Escape shown.

Nintendo: Announced partnership with IBM and Matsushita (Panasonic) to create new hardware codenamed “Dolphin” (GameCube).

SNK: Neo Geo Pocket hardware is shown.

Bandai Namco Entertainment: Soulcalibur

Wow Entertainment: The House of the Dead 2

Visual Concepts: NFL 2k

Rare: Perfect Dark, Donkey Kong 64

Naughty Dog (not purchased by Sony until 2001): Crash Team Racing

Square: Final Fantasy VIII

Capcom: Dino Crisis

Id Software: Quake III

Irrational Games/Looking Glass Studios: System Shock 2

Bumping due to my noob decision to post this so late at night haha



Hmm, if Microsoft showed of Age of Empires 2 at E3 that year then I'd pick them hands down.
Also this is the year of Shenmues release in Japan,
Roller Coaster Tycoon came out.
So did Homeworld, Rayman 2, Crazy Taxi, Pokemon Gold and Silver & Unreal Tournament.



Square.

If you show the 2nd best game of all time off at E3, then you win E3!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Going to have to say Sega with the Dreamcast. Software this year is pretty weak over all.

Not a very good year for anybody. Dolphin wound up being kinda lame. Every company either has one game to show, or a sneak peak at hardware that would have been shown off fully at E3 2000.



The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true. 

Currently playing Skryim modded to hell and back.

I agree, 1999 was kind of a bust haha. This vote is close so far!

Dreamcast was huge. I still remember how big that felt as a kid. I voted for SEGA as well.

I wrote it off at first only to find out much later that it was a really good console.  Unfortunately all of the used Dreamcasts I've gotten lately seem to break down.  I still haven't touched most of the game library.
