To just begin with my conclusion; This year’s E3 felt like a quiet one. But it’s difficult to really pin down why this might have been. At least, coming from the perspective of person who only consumed it from the other side of the world via the internet.
I am always secretly the most excited for whatever Nintendo have to announce during E3. They’re the only company that can truly inspire a childlike excitement from me in what they could announce. And seeing as how Nintendo are the only company not really in the between console stage right now, you’d hope they have a lot to say this year.
Last year was pretty grim viewing for Bethesda. They had a lot of big names, but nothing to show for them. The only game they did have any significant time invested in was Fallout 76, which was a game that, by all account, was a disaster befitting its franchise’s name.
