Now that E3 is turning 21, let's reflect on some of the expo's shining moments.
The most 'shocking' E3 moment for me was the FFVII Remake reveal at last year's E3. I never thought that it would become a reality.
For those who don't like click-thru lists: E3 2001's Super Smash Bros. Melee E3 2015's Xbox One Backward Compatibility E3 2001's Xbox E3 2005's Wii E3 2003's Half-Life 2 E3 2015's Final Fantasy VII Revival E3 1995's PlayStation E3 2004's Nintendo DS E3 2002's Xbox Live E3 1995
Final Fantasy VII Remake wasn't that shocking IMO. Being teased every year since that PS3 FFVII Tech Demo (2005). I was kind of like "oh there actually doing it now, awesome". That and it was leaked prior to the announcement.
The reaction videos on Youtube showed a bunch of people who were surprised by it as well so I guess the leak didn't get everywhere. Even people at E3 were screaming in joy.
Yeah I guess. It just didn't feel like "oh shit, that came out of nowhere" moment. Excited? Sure. Shocked? Not really.
What about that infamous Xbox 360 Kinect reveal segment?
Another list that doesn't include Shenmue 3. How can people not see this as one of the most shocking moments ? it's a game that people thought was never going to happen.
