eGamer’s Best Of E3 2012: Games We Wanted To See That Didn’t Show Up
Welcome, guys, girls and everything in-between, to our first ever Best of E3 awards. We thought of the best way to do these without them coming across as overly serious, formal or dull, and in the end decided that we wanted our thoughts on E3 to be entirely casual and easy for you to read.
After all, we’re gamers just like you, and we all have opinions. And that’s exactly what we’ll be bringing to you for these awards, which will run until the end of today. You’ll get to see the eGamer team’s personal, individual opinions on every award dished out, and get to see what we thought of the event and engage with us regarding our opinions, as well as provide your own most importantly.
Now that the introduction is out of the way, to kick off our Best of E3 awards for 2012 we’ll be looking at the games that we each wanted to see at E3, but unfortunately they didn’t show up at the event.
We chatted about it, and here’s what each member of our team had to say.
Dean was quite thoughtful about it:
Tough. There’s a lot — but these games didn’t show because those respective publishers didn’t have conference events at E3. Let’s go with Ubisoft’s new Rainbow Six. More Dishonored, too.
Azhar on the contrary wasn’t so sure:
I’m not entirely sure, because there wasn’t anything I particularly missed at the event. I would have liked to see more gameplay of Dishonored though, and I’d never say no to more Hitman: Absolution.
Our fisherman Alessandro only had one game on his mind:
Oddly enough, it was another Ubisoft title. I was hoping, praying to see some new footage of Rainbow Six: Patriots at the end of Ubisoft’s press conference. Thankfully, we got Watch Dogs instead, but that doesn’t mean I thoroughly missed the next entry in what I consider to be Tom Clancy’s strongest franchise.
BioWare-fanboy Caveshen just couldn’t resist a mention of Dragon Age:
Beyond Good & Evil 2 had images leaked just before E3, getting my hopes all the way up for at least a new trailer if nothing else. Alas it wasn’t to be, and nor was my beloved Dragon Age 3 with BioWare not even so much as making a showing at EA’s press conference. I miss you, BioWare.
Abdul-Gaffoor, or AG as he’s most commonly known, said:
I would’ve like to see some more, proper Dishonored gameplay but a notable ommission from E3 was Borderlands 2. I would’ve loved to see that game in action.
Adam mentioned a game that many gamers, including myself, are wondering about:
Where the hell was The Last Guardian? I love Shadow Of The Colossus and to not have the The Last Guardian appear in Sony’s conference left me somewhat disappointed. The game is being developed by Team Ico and a release date is still in question.
That’s it, nice and simple. There’s a lot more to come, so stay tuned for the more interesting awards that will arrive as the day goes on. Let us know what you think down below.
