E3: Best of...
If you read any of my write ups about the several E3 conferences you will know that none where all that exciting. But there was some great games to be seen amongst all this and even though I wasn't able to walk the show floor I sure was able to read information and watch the same game demos people there were getting.
Thus lead me to the 'Best of E3' where I'll narrow down the top three best games from E3 and put in order the big three conferences into bronze, silver and of course the gold award.
Best Game: Bronze - Battlefield 3
I'm no COD fan or a general fan or FPS war shooters in general so to have me excited for a game of that type is a triumph in general.
I'd love to say I'm excited for some story in Battlefield 3 but until writing this I had actual forgot there be some 'story' mode in the game. I just really want to expierce what I consider to be a game changing game as soon as possible.
The BIG 3 of E3: Bronze - Microsoft
Not only that but also the fact Microsoft opened on a 3rd party game was a huge wrong move in my book, especially Call of Duty. Sure, we all know that the 360 is the go to console for COD but if your going to open on that and trying and set a scene for the 'hardcore gamers' do it, don't switch to Kinect stuff straight after.
Best Game: Silver - Tomb Raider
My first look at the reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise came from the 'GameInformer' article and cover story a couple month ago. There coverage didn't go into much other than the new look and the hopefuls the game hopes to achieve, however at the Microsoft Conference we all got to get a demo.
Tomb Raider looks to re-innovate the franchise but also bring a whole lot new to the gaming table in genre. This upcoming title looks to be create a genre I've wanted for some time; 'Survival-Horror' without the horror.
