All three E3s were a major let down, but I can't tell from the title in the OP and your poll whether you are talking about this year in gaming or specifically what remains for the year after the E3 presentations.

This year has been amazing and there are still more great games coming. As for E3, I still looking forward to spidey and dreams.

There was a lot of games I like from all 3 conferences, but I did have some major problems with all three presentations



Halo Infinite: Return of the classic art style and music is great along with a new engine but zero gameplay or even gameplay details

New First Party Studios: Ninja Theory was much of a surprise as it is a good buy for MS, they could honestly become their Naughty Dog if they invest in them properly and give them the freedom they need to make their games the best they can be. But it feels a little too late for Xbox One since we won't anything from these studios except Forza Horizon until next gen it seems like.

Tales of Vesperia, DMC5, Kingdom Hearts 3, Shadows Die Twice, Dying Light 2, Cyberpunk 2077 all great reveals, but I plan playing Tales on my Switch and the rest on my PS4.

Microsoft had their best showing this gen and was a great show for gaming as whole, but its clear that while they are taking steps in the right direction, that MS first party problem won't be solved until next gen. 



The Last of Us, Ghosts of Tsushima, Death Stranding, and Spider-Man are all gonna be fantastic games, but only one of them has a release date, let alone a release year and we didn't get to see any real gameplay for Death Standing just another vague trailer. 

Control, Kingdom Hearts 3, Resident Evil 2 were the only multiplats that at all grab my attention, in fact I can't remember if any other multiplat was shown.

The pacing was horrible due to the music and that god damn intermission which didn't really reveal anything and took up a shocking amount of the conference and was honestly the most boring moment during this years E3.

Also Sony is totally sending Dreams out to die. 



Smash 4 was my 2014 GOTY and Smash Ultimate looks to be top 3 of 2018 at least and as someone who has been slowly getting into competitive I loved the amount of detail Sakurai went into when it comes to changes, but I can see why others got annoyed by this if they weren't into competitive play.

I don't think 2018 is as barren as everyone is making it out to be for the Switch since if you look at the list upcoming games third wise it is a step up from last year and while I don't think its as good the Wii U's 2014 holiday line up first wise or especially 2017 first party wise. Smash and Pokemon Lets Go are gonna move a lot of systems, maybe not to the 20 million units Nintendo is aiming for, but still a lot like at least around 15 to 17 million I say. But I do feel that they could of use about 1 to 2 more first party games and at least shown a bit more 2019 stuff to make their presentation a bit better.


Overall while I was a bit disappoint by this E3 since I was expecting a lot more then what we got, I still really liked a good amount of the things we got. 

It's ok. Not great, but not bad either. I'm interested in Mario Tennis Aces, Spiderman, Just Cause, Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Pokémon Let's Go Eevee, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, MegaMan 11, MegaMan X Collection and Crash Bandicoot Remastered.

It's your average year I think, but 2019 is shaping up to be another 2017, if not better.

Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

I kinda agree. I love sony exclusives and there isnt anything interesting other than Spiderman which I am not that interested in. On the other hand i am still playing GOW so overall it hasn't been a bad year at all

<a href=""><img src="" border="0"></a>

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 2 Remake, rage 2, RDR2, nioh 2, last of us2, ghosts of tsushima, and spider man. Never have i had so many must buys that i'm looking forward too. plus GOW which is probably my favorite game of all time.

I'm disappointed too. I approached this E3 with low expectations, only wanting new info on 4 already announced games: Ace Combat 7, Darksiders 3, Metroid Prime 4 and Cyberpunk 2077.

Of the first three, none of them were at E3 (and seriously, WTF is going on with Ace Combat? It was revealed 3 years ago!), and while Cyberpunk was present, the trailer with zero gameplay didn't really tell us anything interesting.

Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

I give this E3 the highest note, but Nintendo underperfomed so bad.

Eh, AAA wise, this year has been a disappointment for me. next year is looking to improve things a bit more though.

Overall it was a bit more on the disappointed side because 95% of the games were either already announced or predictable (ie. new Halo, Forza, Gears). The only thing that really got me excited was the Resident Evil 2 gameplay and release date (man it's so soon!!) and the new Super Mario Party. Pokemon Let's Go was great as well but they announced it before E3 not sure why.

...but worst of all, this year hardly has any E3 deals for preorder. Last year if you preorder ANY game you'd get 30% off on Bestbuy or on Amazon. This year they have the same BUT its very very few select games so not a lot of options, and limited too, so some are already out of stock for preorders.

MS set the bar too high in anticipation of Sony's conference, so the letdown was much more than what would have been if it was so-so. I didnt expect much from nintendo and i got nothing, so it works out.

To buy list:
-Gears 5
-RDR2 though not at E3 will be out this year.
-Ghosts of Tsushima
-Divison 2
-Fallout 76
-Dying Light 2
-Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
-Shadow of the Tomb Raider
-skull and bones
-finally got a look at what halo infinite will look like, more hyped for this than anything. and its just a demo of the engine, but what they could do with it, I cant wait!

I know there are more but that is just some and most are on ps4 and xbox. I am looking forward to this avalanche of releases between fall this year and spring next year.
