7 things you already forgot happened at E3

It’s only been a couple of months but chances are, with all that information flooding out of Los Angeles at the start of June, you’ve forgotten about some rather important gaming news. Worry not, help is at hand. Just like elephants, we remember everything. (Assassin's Creed III, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, Far Cry 3, Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

E3 was amazing this year.

In before several disagree votes.

Just about everything was Predictable about E3 2012..

Next year when all theses new consoles get announced, that E3 will blow this one out the water completely guaranteed

....until we find out that they're "Kinect-box 1080" and "Wonderbook-Station"

But hey, they'll still have normal controllers for the annual Halo, COD, and Killzone. Because they're TOTALLY not abandoning the core for the fickle casual audience! Totally!

Absolutely! Wonderbook and Kinect and dance games galore! Gamers paradise! Who cares about Vita games or anything that uses a controller? And really, who wants surprises? Not me, that's for sure.

As rbailey has pointed out above, it was very predicatble and nothing we wanted to be announced was shown.

Having leaks and showing games off before E3 is pointless.

I mean take PS All Stars for example, people were waiting for a ton of new characters, modes, features, an epic mash up trailer of our favorite characters and what do we get...a short demo with nothing new in it except for two characters, Drake and Big Daddy which were leaked on their facebook page two weeks before E3.

Next Year will hopefully be better...new consoles will obviously make it special.

There was an E3 this year?
The only thing I remember about this years E3 was my jaw hitting the floor while watching the PLANETSIDE 2 Live Stream!

E3 was pretty bland. Nothing new really came out of it but Watch Dogs and *shudders* Wonderbook.
TheLastGuardian  +   964d ago
You remembered Wonderbook but not Beyond: Two Souls? For shame.
Christopher  +   964d ago
I was scarred, okay?!? Scarring causes people to forget many of the good things in life.

Leave me alone!

*cries alone in corner*

Ubi where the only ones who saved E3 from the **** pile this year

You really got the sense that Sony and Microsoft were biding time until next E3. You could also tell that some of the software companies really waned to let loose and show some things, but weren't allowed to.

Next E3 should be the most epic E3 in recent memory. As long as we don't see a ton of "CGI" game trailers. That might ruin the fun a bit, I want to actually see these new games played a bit.

i think e3 was disappointing because people like myself thought nintendo was going to dominate and im more of a sony gamer and i was saying "this is nintendos year they have to bring it how can they lose star fox, f-zero here i come" but they kind of dropped the ball, and for some reason people believed that the next xbox and playstation would be revealed, all of this combined with a majority of sequels and things we clerly saw coming ruined e3.

also sony where were the vita games.
MattyG  +   965d ago
I actually did forget most of theses things. Besides a couple cool demos, not much stood out to me this year.
Nerdmaster  +   964d ago
That's because none of these things are worth remembering.
MattyG  +   964d ago
Exactly. E3 as a whole was barely worth remembering.
12345bnm  +   965d ago
What?! That was the real E3?
I thought they were only joking.
Moby-Royale  +   965d ago
Oh Tommy....
GhostHero333  +   965d ago
All I want is PS one games on my Vita specifically Legend of the Dragoon, and Call of Duty Black Ops Declassified details.
black911  +   965d ago
That E3 still existed?
flavorbabies  +   965d ago
To be honest, I didn't forget any of these 7 things.
Plagasx  +   965d ago
E3 was just terrible this year. I actually preferred it when Microsoft had kids up on the stage.
YodaCracker  +   964d ago
Yes, at least there was some entertainment value to that, intended or not.
kingdavid  +   964d ago
Gamescom will probably outdo E3 this year it was that bad.
EazyC  +   964d ago
If GTA V is there (which was hinted at in the Gamescom trailer), of course it will! :D
Alos88  +   964d ago
It wasn't so long ago that huge AAA games were announced every day at E3, now you're lucky if there's even one such game that hasn't been leaked beforehand.
