I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)
27th May 2004
For those of you who don't know, E3 is the event that just passed in the gaming world and was formally considered the greatest and most anticipated gathering of gamers and gaming journalists around the world.
However, since 2006 the event has been drastically downsized, now being open only to members of the press and a very special select few. In the past newly every dog and his bone was able to get in, that was never a bad thing either. These days only the top companies showcase their products, and even then they're usually things already been announced.
As n0e pointed out in this thread Penny Arcade summed it up pretty well:
And while I normally don't condone any of what IGN says, they are pretty on the mark this time around with their comments on the show. I suggest taking a look at the link below.
So fellow gamers, what do you think shall become the fate of our beloved E3? Should it be culled all together with more effort focused on the Game Developer Conference (GDC) and others alike? or be reinstated to it's former glory?
