From "To some, E3 is the name of an event that typically takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Whereas for others, E3 is shorthand for a period of time in June where lots of video games get announced.

Yep! Give me a few days or a week of gaming news. I can pull away from life a bit and just soak it in. Spread out, I need to keep up on the news and track when who is doing what show and remembering to watch.

I like how devs randomly contacted keighley last year and said “hey I have something to show”. I liked that aspect, I didn’t mind them being spread out at all. I usually take a few days vacation during e3 but I didn’t miss it last year. I took the last week of the year and New Years off instead.

I like the shows. It gives me something to look forward to in the gaming world and has provided some brilliant moments of excitement for me personally.

Even though companies are moving more towards their own solo events, id miss it if we didnt have the circus of E3 conferences

Feedback should be less cringeworthy performances and blatant paid-off awards.

You won't get a show at all without those
