FFD: What excited you at E3?

1 min read


Aside from a few standout moments at the press conferences – namely, Ubisoft’s Watch dogs reveal, David Cage’s Beyond: Two Souls introduction and a gameplay demonstration of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us – the E3 press conferences were a little dull.

Even Nintendo’s first major showcase of their new Wii U hardware was a little underwhelming, closing off a largely uninspired E3. That said, each major play did have something interesting to show – and while some are calling this the worst E3 in recent history, I actually think it was better than last year’s.

What from E3 this year actually left an impression on you? What got you excited? I gotta say, my favourite moment from E3 is reflected in the header image. That bizarre, WTF Iwata Banana moment saved the whole of E3 for me.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3.
