eGamer’s Best Of E3 2012: Game Of The Show
Here we are at the final award for the day, and we hope you enjoyed reading our thoughts on this year’s E3. As you may have guessed, this was the most difficult one to decide on for each of us because the awesome-levels were maximum at E3 thanks to a handful of games that blew us away.
Take a look at what each of thought the best game at E3 was.
Dean decided to avoid choosing just one, considering it unfair to do so:
It’s tough to decide which game is the best. Certain games top the ranks of their specific genre. The three best games, without hesitation, include Watch Dogs; BEYOND: Two Souls; and The Last Of Us. They deserve game of the show in their specific genre — choosing is unfair.
Azhar shared a similar opinion, but ended up choosing anyway:
While I could go on for hours about how amazed I was by Watch Dogs, The Last Of Us and Beyond: Two Souls, and easily debate that they’re completely different games that shouldn’t be compared and each deserve the award, I’d have to choose Beyond: Two Souls in the end. I was completely captured by the demonstration, extremely interested and, being a massive fan of both Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy, I absolutely cannot wait to find out more about this game. This game, as well as the other two, won E3.
Alessandro once again worshipped Watch Dogs:
Comfortably, comfortably Watch Dogs. Besides being highly innovative, mind-blowingly gorgeous and expertly shown off, the reason I loved it so much was because no one saw it coming. Watch Dogs was probably one of the best kept secrets in a long time and I was genuinely surprised by its announcement, something which has become a rarity. Kudos on the sneaky skills Ubisoft.
And as usual, Caveshen had the outcast opinion, but Assassin’s Creed fans may agree:
Assassin’s Creed III. Having had to play through Brotherhood and Revelations and be left slightly underwhelmed after being amazed by Assassin’s Creed II, it was great to finally see what the original team at Ubisoft were busy with and it just felt right seeing Assassin’s Creed III bringing the epic right back.
Abdul-Gaffoor struggled to choose, but went for the big three:
It’s so difficult to choose, but there are definitely three clear front-runners. Watch Dogs wowed because it was such a surprise and looks so promising with some fresh and innovative things going for it and I’m very impressed by what I’ve seen thus far. The Last of Us was just so amazing to finally see in action. The game has a very human quality to it that draws you in, even when watching a video, and the dynamic nature of everything is so astounding. Finally, Beyond: Two Souls was simply exceptional with that trademark Quantic Dream magic.
And Adam went for Watch Dogs:
If one game stood above the rest for pure atmosphere, style and presence it had to be Watch Dogs which brought to the table new possibilities for what I assume to be an amazing prospect of a cyber punk open world game. Visually the game was stunning, the story and setting look to be heading in a Blade Runner and Neuromancer direction which is great. Ubisoft proved themselves with this great game and it deserves to be noted as the best game on show.
That ends our rather casual E3 awards. We really hope you enjoyed reading what we have to say, and we’re looking forward to hearing your opinions. Thanks guys and girls, and happy gaming.
