Can someone link to a site or post that shows the games showcased or announced during e3?
Would xseed games count for example?
I don't have a list but in the rules I wrote "You may vote for any game that has an E3 presence for any reason." so as long as that criteria is met, anything goes.

The PSP game Brandish for example counts.

Really close between Bloodborne and No Man's Sky for me. Still kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinda skeptical about what No Man's Sky can potentially deliver but I really hope that it can because the trailers really wow'ed me. Bloodborne on the other hand is still familiar yet seems capable of building so much upon what's been established from its predecessors. The fantastic art direction that's always been a hallmark of the Souls series seems just as great from what's been presented so far if not even better.

Lots of other titles I could probably add but this was a really solid E3 this year. Really excited for 2015.

edit: to me it's really saying something that there are so many other games not even on my list that I'm absolutely looking forward to. No Man's Sky, Metal Gear, Mortal Kombat, The Division, Grim Fandango...and on and on. The next couple of years are going to be extremely good for gaming.

No Zelda U because they only showed a teaser. Don't get me wrong, I shed a tear when I saw it, but the other games deserve my vote because they showed cool gameplay.

So far a lot of people are treating both versions of SSB4 as one game. So I'll do that too. But if I'm not allowed, lemme know and I'll move some things around. However, picking these games was painful enough as it is, I don't know if I can come up with one of these that I would take off the list.


  1. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (This game is looking impossibly huge in scale. It's not just a sandbox stealth game, Mother Base makes it a life sim too. I'm gonna enjoy Fultoning groceries for my burgeoning Diamond Dogs.)
  2. Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U (Not as highly rated as MGS5, but it's my top game franchise, for sure. Crossing all these characters together in one place? When I first saw the commercial for SSB64, I knew it was an idea I had to get behind.)
  3. Star Fox Wii U (This game needs to exist. Not only is it a new Star Fox game for home consoles, but it might come in episodic form, as in, like a TV show. Treating the Star Fox franchise like a TV show? I can see it now. Not to mention, it might have ties to Project Guard. I'm all in.)
  4. Splatoon (I believe this could be the next Mario Kart, if promoted heavily enough. Somehow Nintendo knows just how to convince me that a game is the future. This looks like it's gonna be mostly multiplayer, so I know I won't get very much enjoyment out of it because I don't have any friends, but objectively speaking this looks like it could be big.)
  5. Bloodborne (I've been drinking the Dark Souls Kool-Aid. Some say Dark Souls II was too deviant from Miyazaki's vision, but with Miyazaki directly at the helm of Bloodborne like he was with Dark Souls, this should be another challenge to brag about beating.)
  6. Cuphead (I've been drinking the "Hey that's a neat idea" Kool-Aid. And Cuphead, this love letter to the 1930s, might not look too deep gameplay-wise, but every time I see it I'm blown away by how authentically Fleischer it looks. Shockingly legit. I've seen other homages to stuff, other hand drawn games, this is the first one I've seen that absolutely nails the concept. Nails it. I believe in this game too.)
  7. Mortal Kombat X (Back in the Midway Games days, as a Mortal Kombat fan I thought I was part of a loyal but dying breed. MK9 showed that Mortal Kombat can be relevant as a fighter again, and Ed Boon's work on MK9 seems all present and expanded on in MKX as well. With these new characters I feel like they might be headed for the same mistakes they made with Deadly Alliance and onwards, but that's my only critique.)
  8. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (I think Toad is to me what Rosalina is to everyone else. This screams eShop diversion, but it's new developments out of the Mario franchise. If this had been a Wario & Waluigi teamup game, or some kind of Daisy game, you can bet I'd put this way higher on the list.)
  9. Code Name S.T.E.A.M. (Graphics-wise, it doesn't look ready. But if it did look ready, like everything else on this list it'd be a must-buy for me. If this isn't a once-off, as someone who isn't into Fire Emblem I could use a not-dead strategy franchise from Nintendo to play, even if it's from SEGA first.)
  10. Assassin's Creed: Unity (Like I said before, the multiplayer is wasted on me. But have you seen those improvements? And if that wasn't enough, I gotta see that Present Day.)

Bayonetta 2 definitely takes first place for me. Witcher 3's gameplay has too many questionable aspect despite the incredible graphics (graphics don't make the game).

Zelda U just looks amazing, not only am I talking about the art style here but also everything Aonuma has told us so far about the game. There's no way I couldn't make it my number 1. Bloodborne I'm also terribly excited about, I love From Software's games and I'm very glad they are changing things up this time. The lovely horror atmosphere is only icing on the cake. Xenoblade X looks great as well and Xenoblade was my favorite JRPG of the generation so that's why I'm ranking it third. Some of you who haven't played the Wii game may not be convinced but believe me it's going to be fantastic if the first game is anything to go by.

I would have ranked Grim Fandango higher because hey it's Grim Fandango, but we really don't have too many info on what they're going to do with it right now. Smash Brothers I would have included if we hadn't already received so much info on the game, I just felt some other games deserved a vote this time.

Quite a nice E3 overall!

Mirror's Edge 2 just missed out, mostly thanks to the shitty way EA presented the game. It's still one of my most anticipated games though.

Splatoon pleasantly surprised me and left a strong impression. Zelda U is not on here due to nothing being shown outside that initial reveal (there's always next year lol). This is mostly Nintendo stuff since the Treehouse was taking most of my attention.

Would have loved to pick No Man's Sky too but, honestly, I feel like we know nothing about the game, and I'm not quite sure the devs know themselves considering how they seemed to dodge most questions that went into detail. Weird.
