Was The Last Guardian the real star of the most explosive E3 yet?

Dealspwn: Now that all the E3 2015 press conferences are finally over, I've been able to take a much-needed step back and reflect on the games that have really stood out. And The Last Guardian stands out in way that few others did.

While we had explosive blockbuster displays and epic reveals from the like of Horizon: Zero Dawn, Fallout 4, Halo 5, Doom and many more, nothing really formed an emotional bond as much as the reappearance of The Last Guardian. But why?

OP title - Horizon for me/Battlefront sounds OMGGG! Still it was pretty awesome and amazing for Sony to open with it.

Having said that as said in this well written piece it will definitely be interesting to see how the their relationship grows remind of agro from Shadow of the Colossus

The most explosive part of E3 was XboxOne backwards compatibility hands down.

The best part of e3for you was an announcement that you can play old games? I assume your xbox one this gen so it wasnt halo 5,gears 4, tomb raider or the rare collection..hmm interesting i guess

It's so awesome that every website is covered in Sony article's! Note the lack of articles on any of MS's games.

* I know some won't agree but I wasn't that impressed with The Last Guardian.

* The kid yelling the same noises IS going to get annoying after a while.

* They didn't actually show you doing much, so I don't know how it plays yet outside of running to a spot and waiting for the Flying dog to help you across.

* It looked visually appealing, but that isn't enough.

* I thought it was maybe the 8th most exciting thing for that day.

Horizon looked much better.

Horizon looked better than pretty much anything this year.
Still, seeing TLG in action somehow made me emotional, it's not only the fact that it's finally coming... but also because I just know that it's going to be an incredibly special experience just like Ico & SotC.

Yeah Horizon was the best looking game out there followed by UC4. Completely disinterested in TLG. Looks boring as all hell.

JsonHenry1280d ago

Not really. It looks like a decent game. But NOT the show stopper. I think Fallout 4 and Doom 4 were much better reveals.

uth111280d ago

show stoppers for different reasons.

I haven't been particularly interested in TLG, yet it felt like the ground shook and the floor dropped out when I realized what trailer I was watching!

I don't think it's the real star of the show, but people who liked Ico or SoTC know what to expect from what was shown...particularly if they played Ico because this seems to be almost exactly like that with a bit more involvement from the main characters charge. That's why the anticipation and excitement for them finally showing it and it being released is so high.

To me, the stars of the show is probably a toss up of Fallout 4(getting the pipboy edition) and Horizon which had a great reveal IMO. Shenmue 3, FF7, and ReCore have my attention in a big way, particularly the first two.

I was glad that The Last Guardian was finally re-introduced and that it's coming. I absolutely love Team ICO games and I will most certainly play this one.

Having said that, for me The Last Guardian was far from the "star" of E3. Honestly I didn't even think it was the star of the Sony conference. Horizon was by far the best thing at Sony's conference and it was 2nd in "Game of Show" for me behind Fallout 4 and that was only because we are actually getting Fallout 4 this year. Horizon blew me away. The Last Guardian I was like "oh, cool."

I thought it was a pretty powerful moment based on the history of the game and studio. However, not really a game I am personally that excited for. I mean, I am excited to see more but what they showed wasn't that exciting.

Uncharted, Horizon and Dreams were the games from the Sony conference that really excited me.
