Now that the We Got This Covered team has had time to marinate on the biggest and brightest announcements from a memorable E3 event, it’s now time to select our favorite games from the show.
It was by no means easy, particularly when you consider just how many press conferences there were. Bethesda kicked things off on the eve of Day Zero with a lean and mean showcase, toplined by a blood-drenched Doom and a detailed look at the lush world of Fallout 4 – a world that we’ll no doubt be spending umpteen hours in come November.
Barely twenty-four hours had passed when Microsoft took to the stage to bolster its first-party line-up, and the Xbox One has a renewed sense of purpose under the astute leadership of Phil Spencer. Gone are the days when Microsoft was trumpeting the Kinect and the “all-in-one” entertainment system from the rooftops.
Then, Sony sent the Internet into a tailspin with a press conference that was bordering on fan fiction; announcing – or indeed re-revealing – The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Shenmue 3 in one fell swoop. In truth, few could have predicted a show brimming with nostalgia, and it’s clear just how much the community values old games considering the rapturous reception of backwards compatibility on Xbox One.
For the purpose of this feature, though, we’re looking forward; forward into late 2015 and the early stages of 2016 to assemble our most-anticipated titles now that the curtain has dropped on an E3 event that will likely go down in history as one of the very best. So, why don’t you join us?
