Eurogamer's Best of E3 2009

It was a vintage year. The videogame industry shrugged off recession and put two years of directionless caution behind it last week, staging a confident showcase in Los Angeles that showed the rest of the entertainment world who was boss without overdoing the tacky excess. A ton of news (some of which hadn't even leaked), a little controversy, a lot of showmanship, some scarily futuristic new technology - and, best of all, plenty of first looks at exciting games that are actually coming out in the next six months.

After their fairly annoying LiveBlog of the Sony Press Conference and their usual disdain for Sony IPs, they go and give it the best Publisher title.

Overall, I'm a bit jaded that so many are buying into Milo & Kate so early and without real public showing, but overall not horrible selections for E3 awards.

First, love the disagree(s)!

Second, rereading their article, they actually did a good job writing that. Even explaining their choice of the new Super Mario game as game of E3 2009. Very well-thought out, though you may disagree. It's all based on opinion in the end.

This is a much better article than the riff raff we usually have to put up with on N4G. I like it how they actually appreciated SONYs first party line-up unlike some other sites who pretended it didn't exist. Unfortunately, it probably won't make the front page because it's not controversial enough...

Game of the show, new Mario Brothers?? No.
New game announcement? Did people just totally overlook Agent, I mean it is being developed by the same team that made GTA which is a worldwide hit. FFXIV MMO is being made by the XI developers so we'll see how that turns out.

I don't think people are overlooking it as much as it was a 10 second teaser, if even that long. Besides everyone knew R* was making a PS3 exclusive it's just that everyone thought it was La Noire.

I wouldn't have gone with Agent either. Why? Nothing to show but a title and logo. I would have put ModNation Racers ahead of the new Mario title, though, but I am biased against Mario games since I don't find any enjoyment in them.
