Turns Out We Need E3 After All

Alex S. from Link Cable Gaming writes: "The industry-wide trade show’s absence was so incredibly missed in 2020, that just a few months after many (including yours truly) had written the show off as a dinosaur that had reached its extinction event we’re now begging for E3… or something like it, to come back. It turns out we need E3 after all."

That's your opinion.

I know I sure didn't feel the pinch of no E3 this year. And that's mainly because E3 was less about gaming and more about "the show" as of late anyway.

I missed what E3 WAS, not what it devolved into in the past few years. The only ones that really missed E3 were the industry journalists that miss the free swag and clicks to their websites and/or channels

No thanks. Glad it’s gone.

We don't need E3, E3 has sucked for a while now, so much so, that most large publishers including MS, EA, Bethesda, And Sony have been having their conferences and showfloors off grounds for years now.

What we DO still need is a unified platform like E3 used to be, but it doesn't have to be E3, or even a physical space really. But that sort of condensed 1-3 day heavy hitter Holiday like event needs to return to form somehow.

Nah, we're good without it. I'd much rather have Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft doing the mini-presentations every so often to reveal a few new games here and there. You still get the surprise of what's going to be shown off. And they don't have to blow a huge chunk of money setting up grand stages with special guests and performances. I'd much rather have that money put toward actual developers to create games.

It turns out, I don't care if we ever see E3 again. I personally hope we don't. Sony are seeing record numbers online for their big streams. They've seeing record social reach. They are never going to E3 again.
