Missing in Action: Top 10 Games That Didn't Make E3

Wired:
We’ve heard quite a bit about the games that made the biggest splashes at the Electronic Entertainment Expo. But several titles were conspicuous by their absence.

E3, which took place June 15 to 17 in Los Angeles, is the premier trade show for the global gaming industry. Every major maker of videogame software and hardware saves its big guns for the expo, hoping to outshine the competition with the best games and most shocking announcements.

Sometimes the biggest news at the dog-and-pony show comes from the dogs that don’t bark. Whether the silence stems from publishers focusing on other products, or is an indication that the game’s development is in trouble, an E3 no-show doesn’t exactly inspire a vote of confidence.

With this year’s event in the rearview mirror, Wired.com rounded up a list of the top 10 games missing in action at E3 2010, arranged in ascending order of how surprised we were that they didn’t make the big show.

The story is too old to be commented.

Its a good list, I think everyone was expecting at least a few of those to be present. Personally AGENT would have been the only game on that list that wouldve made up for the rest IMO.

And maybe now people can realize why everyone is so underwhelmed with kinects offerings. Look at how little MS delivered with kinect compared to the earlier promises.

"Did you guys play that martial-arts game that uses Kinect, Microsoft’s promising new motion controller for Xbox 360? Or the one where you smash a city as Godzilla? Or the skateboarding game where you scan in your own decks? Or the facial recognition software that lets you try on new clothes? Or the four-player quiz game? Or the Netflix app that lets you flick and wave through movies?

Oh, you mean none of that actually exists and all you played was a knockoff of Wii Sports?"
