The E3 - A disappointing overexcitement or a justified hype?

CanadianGamer writes: E3 2014 is just around the corner and we’re already feeling the hype of this annual festival. From press releases to announcements, every single video game company in the world is drooling over the idea of making the headline during that time.

Over the past years, we saw numerous reports of false advertising of several big companies presenting an unfinished game version boosted to steroid. I will go further by saying that sometimes , products showcased at E3 are over-hyped, falsified and by any mean close to the final product quality expectations. A lot of gamers have been frustrated by the difference between an E3 game presentation and the finished product.

I could see an article asking questions like this a week from now but now pre E3. "Gaming media worthwhile source of information or nothing of value to say other than sensationalism and more worthless banter / fodder?"

Agreed on both comments. Well said indeed. Save the impression articles for after E3 airs.

Justified hype hopefully

I think It's being overhyped. Mostly due to the dire situation Xbox One is in. Xbox One needs a game changer to differentiate Itself from the more powerful equally price PS4. I think most are hoping that MS will deliver this so-called game changer at E3.

There's that broken attitude that seems to be too often seen in journalism. Posing the question of whether E3 is a yearly disappointment or justified showcase, but then writing up mostly support for saying how disappointing it and the games they showed was is a poor decision. The writer spends most of the article explaining how big of a disappointment E3 was because some of their anticipated games were in development hell or didn't live up to the writer's hype.

I would suggest watching E3 first before dismissing it entirely. Now the VGAs or VGX (on the other hand) can be easily written off given its history. By the way, Team Fortress 2 is much better the way it is now than the modern military setting they had originally.
