Square enix.

Found Nintendo's really lacking. Here's witcher 3.. but no game play. Hell we saw more of BOTW2 than witcher 3. Zero mention of Metroid.
I got excited thinking we may actually get a new Donkey kong and not just a port of a wii U game. Nope it was just another smash announcement.

Because Witcher 3 is a port. 

Pocky Lover Boy! 

Bad presentations: Bethesda, Sony (haha), EA
OK presentations: Microsoft, Ubisoft, SquareEnix
Good presentations: No one
Great presentations: Nintendo
One of the best presentations: No one

Overall, a bad E3, but Nintendo had a pretty great presentation. Nintendo won this year for the first time in a few years imo.

I thought Nintendo would just talk about each game and take their time, but they just kept throwing game after game after game. It was a game onslaught.

I voted for Square Enix, but now that I've rewatched Nintendo, I think they did slightly better. There are few ways to top a big chunk of FF7R gameplay, but BOTW 2 is one of them, as is Panzer Dragoon for me at least. As for low points, I'll take a hokey live action ad for Resi 5 and 6 over an Outriders dev diary any day of the week.

Phil overhyped his first-party showing and the leaks ruined a lot of the fun, but PSO2 was a great surprise. Bethesda was cringey and phony as usual. Ubisoft quadruple-downed on Tom Clancy, which isn't my cup of tea, but Gods and Monsters has my interest. Jedi Fallen Order is definitely on the right track, but a great E3 event it doesn't make (to say nothing of the horror stories from people who actually attended EA Play). I haven't seen PC Gaming or Devolver yet.

Nintendo gave me everything I wanted today: An excuse to start drinking at 10 AM. As always, I ended up not watching the show . I'll give them 2nd place.

I heard Phil Spencer put on some weight. That makes me happy. Again, didn't watch it. MS gets 3rd place.

Devolver Digital was the only one I watched. Was good. 1st place.

Honorable mention to Bethesda for their rent-a-crowd, which was pretty funny, and for the sexy Japanese woman they briefly had on stage. What an adorable spark plug. Full of enthusiasm, and you could see her ass from the front. I always like that.

Everyone was kind of underwhelming with some really great parts. But I would give my vote to Square-enix because The FF7remake presentation was IMO the best e3 presentation this year.

Tbh, I don't think anyone did, at least for me.

PC had a tiny list of games I was interested in, the rest being EGS exclusive, so that bummed me out quite a bit.

Nintendo had Zelda, which I want to buy in Sept for sure, but AC's delay to next yr crushed me big time. That Machina game I wanna grab as well, but that's honestly about it. The new Pokemon isn't grabbing me, as I was more or less getting fed up with the way Pokemon was heading since Sun.Moon. The rest of Ninty's IP's just don't appeal to me at all, with any other games being shown, to also be released on PC, so I'd get those other indie games there and not count them towards Nintendo itself (as they don't own those indie devs showing said games).

MS kinda had me with Age of Empires and Halo coming to Steam, but I already knew one of the two was coming. The new Client is nice, but I want mod support and for it not to be completely centered around just gamepass, and let me buy a game standalone like I can anywhere else. The gamepass idea sounds nice, but I'm already paying for bills, insurance, food, and Amazon prime and ESO sub, I'm not going to pay for another sub plan, because they frankly just add up.

Bethesda wasn't really doing anything for me, besides my original decision to grab DOOM and Wolf regardless, so anything else shown wasn't really doing much for me at all, except maybe that Ghost Wire game, but I'd have to look more into that. If the game turns out to be yet another Souls inspired game, then I'm out.

EA I just ignored as usual, except for seeing a brief clip of the SW game, which looked bland and boring, as well as linear as hell.

Ubisoft I outright ignored, due to the EGS crap and seeing how they rolled, I've missed on nothing I wasn't interested in.

Didn't really pay any attention to SE, but saw a few screens of FF remake on twitter. Won't really be interested until it's sold as a complete game on PC (and I know SE will). FF 8 remaster looks alright from what I've seen shots of (again, on twitter). SE didn't really do much to get my hopes up for much of anything.

Didn't watch AMD's show, but going by their GPU details, I don't think I'm missing much, nor caring much for it either.

PC E3 I ignored and strictly kept an eye on announcements, via another party that was watching the conference, as I didn't want to give PCgamer the clicks on their site. I have seen from a friend on Twitter, that the vids that show EGS exclusive games, have all been negatively downvoted, vs the ones that aren't exclusive, that are upvoted, so that's enough to tell what's going on over there. The Shem debacle has really blown up and PCgamer has been trying to defend the devs and EGS as per usual, so nothing new there. Wasn't interested in that game, but fuck the devs for being so scummy and withholding refunds. PCgamer show was more or less a complete letdown for me, far worse than last year and this year alone shows that I can never trust a dev for eyars to come due to EGS debacles.

Really, this year's E3 was more or less a shitshow for me. Yeah, there's the odd few games I am thrilled to buy, like Zelda and Planet Zoo, but really, that's about it for me, because the rest are looking at 2020 release dates, and even then, I don't know if Epic Games will swoop in next year, and pull some shady shit and make them 2021 releases instead, meaning my hype would die and my desire to blacklist those devs becoming more of a thing.

Excited for a few games, disappointed in devs and generally these year long release dates.

Please, is it so hard to just keep ones mouth shut and just announce a game's release, near to 6 months and not 11 to a year?.

Step right up come on in, feel the buzz in your veins, I'm like an chemical electrical right into your brain and I'm the one who killed the Radio, soon you'll all see

So pay up motherfuckers you belong to "V"

Nintendo was great but so was Square Enix. Really I think I won, plenty of things I'm looking forward to were shown. Square wins by FFVIII, but I don't want to say that Nintendo didn't win too.
