Game Informer has ranked the top 50 games of E3 in their latest issue. Find of which title came out on top and which other games made the list. (Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360)

Glad to see Zelda up there in the top 3..
-Mezzo-  +   1495d ago
Can't argue Zelda deserves to be there. Got Infamous 2 right though i would swap Mortal Kombat with Killzone 3, it's criminal to rate that game that down on the list.
demonddel  +   1495d ago
how you know was you there im sure they was
Krimmson  +   1494d ago
GameInformer always (and I mean ALWAYS) go crazy for Mortal Kombat. Seeing it so high up isn't surprising not only because the game seems to be making a huge comeback, but also because GI just love Mortal Kombat.

They even gave Deception a 9.5! That game was barely even passable in my opinion and GI gave it a 9.5!
Forbidden_Darkness  +   1495d ago
Yeah, zelda is awesome, they just didnt have a good showing at E3 is all.

Homefront? Honestly? Wow...

Bulletstorm #6, what the f&$% are they smoking?

Really? You're saying the E3 demo(all we've seen) wasn't that great but the game is? Sure is blind fanboy in here. I'm not saying the game will be bad, its just people like this that make me unable to stand Nintendo anymore.
Imperator  +   1495d ago
Bulletstorm looked like a lot of fun. Definitely one of the highlights of E3.
Forbidden_Darkness  +   1495d ago
@Bulletproofish: All zelda games have turned out and thats what i expect from Skyward Sword and nothing less. So far Nintendo hasn't let us down.

Are you calling me a Nintendo fanboy? Because if you look at past comments, im a PS3 fanboy and i don't even own a Wii anymore. I've loved ever Zelda game i've played, but it is one of a very few franchises that i play on Nintendo systems
NecrumSlavery  +   1495d ago
The last truly great Zelda game was Wind Waker. Skyward Sword wasn't graphically nice by any means, no unique art style at all. The controls weren't working, and it just looked average. Zelda games always took risks and creative direction, but any more...I dunno.

Sequels in the top 10 is showing a lack of interst in new ips. Bulletstorm is only néw ip in top 10? Why is that? It's another shooter. Looks good but, come on people, let's open our minds. Epic Mickey should be up there, it's a fresh new amazing ip with greater thought than most of this list. Can't give free passes to apease the fanbase.

Oh and where is Sorcery?

1. kz3
2. gt5
3. everything else
Kingdom Come  +   1495d ago
The difference between your list and their list is...
Theirs isn't biased due to Fanboyism, and they've played the games. Having played Killzone 2, I can see a lot of people blinded by the graphics that can't see just how generic and unoriginal the gameplay is. GT5 should be great though...
morganfell  +   1495d ago
It sounds more like you are talking about Bulletstorm. It's a generic fps title with a few game mechanics tossed in. I like Epic but they are beginning to look like a one trick pony.

And anyone that says KZ2 is generic hasn't played the game and certainly never even investigated the multiplayer.

The idea that if you select a PS3 title as best of show then you are a fanboy is absurd.

@ Morgan - I still have no idea what was so original about Killzone 2, can someone explain? It had generic guns, enemies, level design, multiplayer as far as I was concerned, but please explain what set it apart, and don't mention the unrealistically stiff controls, Operation Flashpoint did stiff controls years ago, only there's were realistically so.

OT - What is with rating Kirbys epic yarn 8 places above Fable 3, 21 places above Crysis 2 and 24 places above GT 5. Fail list is Fail.

@ Kingdom Come
"I can see a lot of people blinded by the graphics that can't see just how generic and unoriginal the gameplay is. GT5 should be great though..."

So killzone is generic and GT5 is not? I'm confused :s
iFLOWLIKEWATER  +   1495d ago
T
he test I use for asking if a game is average and generic goes like this. Take a game like Gears and imagine it being multiplat. There isn't a doubt in my mind that it would sell a shitload of copies. Now take a game like Killzone and put it in the same scenario. The game wouldn't sale... It wouldn't even sale the same number that Gears does being exclusive. There isn't anything about that game that speaks...unique or groundbreaking. If you want to throw 3D into the mix, I can point you to Crysis 2, which will also be able to do this.

Anyway, I have this GI issue sitting in front of me. It's a decent list I guess. I don't know why INfamous 2 is so high up there but I guess they saw something with the game to deserve it. I think they're using the same tech they used for their top 200 games issue that came out a while back.

@morganfell
Thats beside the point, it's the idea that PSfan09 (who by title is a fan-boy) picks 2 exclusives, and then puts everything else like as if no one cared. Regardless i look forward to Child of Eden, Xcom, Deus Ex, Little Big Planet 2, Gran Tursimo 5, Goldeneye on the Wii, Forza 4 (I like the whole looking around and opening the cars with kinect. Although it would be nicer if you could use the controller to steer, instead of the controller. A nice mix would be the ability to change your view in the car by kinect picking up your head movement and then being able to control the car with the controller) and IloMilo (yes barely anyone knows about what looks like a great game.)

As for Fable III still not sure yet
Pandemic  +   1495d ago

Should have been in the top 10

What's not impressive about it?

What makes Halo:Reach better than Killzone 3? Good luck finding an answer to that question.
MORGiON  +   1495d ago
Thats an easy answer for Soda. It has Halo in the name so its automatically the best.
Tachyon_Nova  +   1495d ago
@ Morgion - So what's so good about Killzone 3? You see how easy it is go turn fanboy arguments back on yourself? Halo is popular because it has a comprehensive multiplayer that is accesible by still with competitive options. It is , for most people, although admittedly not me, a fun game.

Halo is popular for the same reasons as CoD, it has fast passed gameplay which anyone can just jump in and play. It is beyond me why so many people bash Call of Duty. I have spent ~ 150 hours on MW2, and still find it enjoyable, yet after less than 10 hours of KZ2 and UC2 I found myself bored. I can hear your thoughts already, thinking to yourself that I just got owned by the perfect killing machines that are PS3 fanboys, far from it. I went back to UC2 for a short stint the other week, and there is no competitive community what so ever. First game back after 6 months of FPS and racers and I was able to win with ease, same case wit all subsequent rounds.
Sarevok  +   1495d ago
@Tachyon_Nova

nice troll skills.

I happen to disagree with you.
Killzone 2's mp was all about team work.
if your team was stupid you're going to lose 1-6 most of the time.

Now whats MW2 like? there is no team work no battle plans nothing! even in team death match your team mates will not help ya at all. they all run off to get the #1 spot at the end of the match.

And that's why I happen to like killzone more then cod.You have to use your head and think not run and gun like rambo or camp for kills.

- Tell me about it. Infamous 2 @ 4th....that game should be somewhere between Homefront and Journey.

@ Sarevok

" Killzone 2's mp was all about team work. "

- LOL no it's not. I go in and NOBODY is using Mic's so everyone is just running and gunner the whole time. There is no teamwork and I have won most of my games on teams that had ZERO teamwork. I wouldn't say Halo is all about the team work but Halo has some game modes where teamwork is very important. KZ2 not so much.

Halo Reach multiplayer wasnt shown off at E3 so its multiplayer should have nothing to do with its E3 score. This list certainly has alot of wierd choices like these lists always does. If you were to set up this list after what review scores these games would get then it would look totally different.

Personally im really dissappointed with where they put motorstorm apocalypse on the list. For me that was one of the absolute best games of the show, but unfortunately it didnt get alot of attention. People will get their eyes up for it eventually though. But im gonna be annoyed when i hear people say, "oh when i first saw motorstorm apocalypse i didnt think much of it but now its one of the games im most excited about" That happens to so many games and it always make me facepalm, because the game always looked good. Some people just fail to realize.

Fable is trash... I beat the first one like a week ago.

A 5 year old could beat that game!
People were telling me how awesome it is.
Nothing in that game could kill me it was so boring.

If fable 2 and 3 are like 1 I will skip em.
Johnny_Bravo  +   1495d ago
Fable was trash because you found it easy and boring? It must be doing something right to outsell Uncharted 2. I found Uncharted 2 to be very easy and boring, does that make it trash? No, that makes it not the game for me.
MajestieBeast  +   1495d ago
Zelda was my biggest dissapointment it just looked crap, like they took a atomic piss all over the screen i liked the art style of twillight princess allot more. Bulletstorm before LBP2 thats just crazy. Where is other M and the new golden sun for the ds. I do not approve of the list of fail. I mean you are freaking out of your mind if you choose dance central before GT5.

SOCOM 4 is at the bottom of my list until I see MP, and when that happens if it looks anything like SOCOM 2 its going straight to #1 on my list. If it looks like they turned SOCOM into a casual POS game, it will stay at the bottom and I'll let SOCOM rest in peace.

Zelda at number 3?

We got a poor tech demo and almost no other information about the game. No story, no background info about the mysterious sword looking girl, no anything. We haven't learned why this Zelda is so different from any other Zelda game we have seen. Besides having 1:1 sword play, they have given us very little information on how this game will be fundamentally different from any other Zelda we've played before.

Not hating on the game or anything but I fail to understand why this is so high up there.

Not saying Zelda will flop. Isn't anyone else the least bit dissapointed as to why we got little to no information?

I have been dying to know what this Zelda will bring to the table. Nintendo has left us to speculate for over a year. I was hoping with this E3, they would show us how this would refresh the series. We got nothing. I'm hoping they announced something in the future, 1:1 sword play won't be enough for me to want to play through yet another Zelda title.
DigitalHorror81  +   1493d ago

And some of the crappiest graphics I've seen this gen. I'm waiting until Nintendo makes the next Zelda. Look at the graphics of Wind Waker and Ocarina... is it me, or do the older games LOOK BETTER?

I have to be honest with you,that list is off by a mile.Sorry to all the nintendo fans but Zelda at 3 plzzzz after such a bad showing at E3 of how bad it doesnt work should be ranked down that list.Just because its zelda doesnt mean its great.Have fun with the broken controllers and now that the new James Bond Bloodstone has been announced It makes Goldeneye look even worst then it already is.I dont understand how you guys keep hanging on by a thread with these refurbished 80s early 90s games.Shows the desperation I guess that the nintnedo fans are afriad to move into the future of the next generation in gamming.I will give it up for Kirbys Epic Yarn it its different and refreshing to see so It really should be number 3 instead of Zelda which looks pretty much like all the others.You can bash me all you want for my post but all this is just an opinion and my feelings dont get hurt by people who who are afraid of the next gen era.

Two 360 exclusives and two PS3 exclusives in the Top 10. Everyone can be happy! Except PS3 fanboys, who I believe would only be happy if all ten of the Top 10 games were PS3 exclusives, and there was a separate list called the "Worst 10 Games of E3 2010", which contained only 360 exclusives.

I thought Killzone 3 and LBP2 should be higher and Zelda should be lower just because of the poor demonstration at E3. Also Socom should be at least on that that list somewhere. That doesn't mean the 360 games should be on a crap list.
