The Direct Approach: Do We Really Need E3?

Despite the usual cringe-worthy attempts at turning a video game conference into a celebrity hosted comedy show, we got a lot of great looking games, teaser trailers, and it seems we may be moving away from the excessive amount of family oriented motion-sensing games. But besides all that, something very different happened: Nintendo did not do a large scale presentation like their competitors. (E3, Nintendo)

Wait; since Nintendo didn't go all out, we don't need E3 anymore?

Of course we do. It's a good way to get the word out on new consoles and games. Beats reading some story online. Especially if you can make it there. And ya this year was great but it has been getting worse and worse every year. Not the conferences but the actual floor show. Less and less swag, they got rid of the energy drink girls outside and the snack and recharge electronics lounge, More and More big booths that are closed off to everyone who isn't media. I mean come on don't put up a huge ass Bethesda area with dragons and babes and say sorry only for media. Although Bethesda this year was awesome and very generous, they had free grilled cheese, chips and drinks for everyone on the street not just E3 attendees. Good deed on their part, many homeless getting a free meal.

Nintendo is out of touch with the gaming community. They have been out of touch since the gamecube. Every generation they just prove how much more out of touch they are. The Wii success I believe is actually the worst thing that couldve happened to Nintendo because they thought they had a solid idea that gamers liked but it was really just an idea that moms/women liked and you know how quickly women turn things into just pure fads. Nintendo doesnt know how to excite the fans and believe they just lack the ability to so going up on a stage at E3 makes them look silly and unless they get new management/heads to run it and do a re-imaging of the company they will continue to sink.
