The Top 7... Cringeworthy moments from the E3 2011 press conferences

GamesRadar - Regardless of what’s revealed at E3, you can always count on the annual show for one sure thing – the excruciating, embarrassing, exasperating press conference. When a bunch of clueless corporate businessmen and obviously uncomfortable game developers share the stage, trying to relate to gamers while simultaneously trying to hit all the necessary boardroom bullet points, the results can be agonizingly awkward.

I agree with this article except for one bit. The move isn't like the wii. It may look the same but the tech is different and can bee seen by the games. Its a bit like kinect being nothing like the eyetoy. They are both cameras but tge tech is different.
OT: some really embarrising E3 momets there

Mr. Caffeine...oh my how embarrassing that was to watch! I was hoping that it was only for the first segment, but no! He kept on doing it...

Then how he said: "Yeah, I'm not afraid of throwing a few dick jokes around" and I felt so embarrassed for him. And he went ON AND ON!!! Jokes that were not funny at all, he was just trying too hard. It was....cringing and so EMBARRASSING to watch.

"Wanna come over and play with my Wii?" --- facepalm.jpg. Surely he couldn't get worse than this?

"Doolulu Doolulu Doolulu Doolulu". Or how he kept on presenting the rest of the people like they were wrestlers or boxers entering the ring. It was very clear...the fans were like STOP IT PLEASE. JUST STOP.

Edit: Someone posted a comment that I felt is correct: "This sounds like the dad that's trying REALLY hard to be cool for his kids."

I couldn't even watch the entire video (of mr caffeine), it was just too embarassing. I actually can't watch videos like that where someone is embarassing theirself in front of a crowd, it just makes ME feel embarassed for some odd reason lol.

I agree Kobe Bryant appearance was a failure, he should have played real NBA not on the Move, that would be a blast.

But whats wrong with Levine, not akward at all, I really liked that

@wenis. I'm the same way. I used to try and watch The Jerry Springer Show but would ahve to turn the channel every 2 minutes. I just cannot stand it.

Mr. Caffeine is a total prick. I hated that guy. Was he supposed to be Ubisoft's answer Kevin Butler or something?

Spitfire_Riggz2687d ago

His jokes were so bad lol. I felt embarrassed FOR him

Brixxer6002687d ago

He rendered the entire Ubisoft presentation virtually unwatchable .

CobraKai2687d ago

I hated his enthusiasm. He was like a f*ckin cheerleader. Total douche, and yeah he made Ubisoft's press conference unwatchable.

WooHooAlex2687d ago

I don't think Ken Levine should be on that list, for me that was a highlight of E3.

PandaJenkins2687d ago

Thought I was the only one who found Levine awkward talking at the press conference. Don't get me wrong I think he is a genius and I love the kind of games he sets out to make, but it was just an awkward feeling talk I thought.

xenophage2687d ago

He actually looked like he was tweaking off cocaine or something.
