The Jimquisition names its inaugural Winners & Losers of E3!
What killed? What died? We celebrate and jeer what Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, Bethesda, Electronic Arts, and Ubisoft had to offer.

His description of Super Mario Odyssey was glorious.

I thought that he maybe had something to say about cross-play, but you could argue that this is not a topic of E3 "proper" and/or becomes more relevant when more than two games support it.

Hah, I've spent a lot of time with Skyrim (mostly modding) and I object in no way to the title. :P

Almost. It needed sounds of a mic just randomly rubbing against stuff, and a heavy breather.

He's gotten into it in recent weeks tweeting about it.

I'm a little surprised he didn't go into The Last Night's controversy as it was probably the most prolific of the show, but I assume he wants to dedicate an entire episode to that.

It was slightly less transparent and groan worthy than usual fake Ubi chat I guess, so....progress?

Haven't seen the video but is this an inside joke or has Jared done something bad? I just know that he's one of those obnoxious youtubers that is mainly watched by kids and teens who like people making funny faces at the camera.

I don't really get the hate for scripted voice chat. We all know it's not largely representative of how chat will sound but I hardly see how it's worse than things like racist insults and general nonsense over distorted mics that people may hear in some session.

Did get a chuckle from Skyrim being called the 'cockroach of games'

The dialogue in Anthem was so obviously fake and scripted I thought it was just the characters speaking for a while haha.

And of course Jim would fall head over heels for Devolver's shtick.

That Train song playing during the multiplayer chatter killed me.

I feel bad for people that hadn't seen the Devolver press conference, since some of its better moments are spoiled here.

All the influencers at EA's thing were just the worst. I can't bring myself to feel bad for that guy whose teleprompter died. It still blows my mind that they wanted us to sit through 15 minutes of Battlefront 2 multiplayer, rather than show off even a little bit of the singleplayer campaign. Guys in Blazers bombing on stage is pretty delightful cringe.

I would think if it's a subject he chooses to cover he will need a whole episode for it, not really something that can be handled in a snippet during a general E3 video.

Yeah, of the gaming YouTubers out there that appeal to the tween-sector he's one of the few I can stand. He comes off as a nice, geniune guy, and I generally agree with his opinions.

BG&E2 a winner?
The same game which people waited almost 15 years for to be continued after a story cliffhanger and a painful teaser in 2008 which led to nothing, finally to be announced, only to be turned out just minutes after the announcement to be a prequel and a multiplayer shared universe thing that nobody, ever, asked for? This game? How can that be a winner? This was one of the biggest, if not that biggest disappointment of the whole E3.

Really Jim? I expected more from you.

Sure the announcement first was amazing, but in the middle of the speech and directly after the press conference when it was more and more clear what this is exactly, I can't remember any bigger live turn around disappointment in the last 4 years of E3 that were bigger.
The Xbox One Announcement where they tried to scam us live in the middle of the press conference, right in our faces, that was bigger, but now comes this. Right now, I would even expect Microtransactions shit to be in it. Who wants to bet?
Oh, the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter announcement would come close, but is right behind BG&E2.

I was there and this is not true. The cheering came from the group of fans that were wearing the shirts in front of the stage.
