Sadly there is not that much hype this year compared to previous


Are you kidding me?

Unreal Engine 4 demos, Crytek 3, potential hints about new consoles, Bioshock Infinite, Halo 4, Assassin's Creed 3, Darksiders 2, Borderlands 2, Metal Gear Rising, Dishonored, Need for Speed Most Wanted, God of War: Ascension, Jet Set Radio, new Sim City


Unless you are just HILARIOUSLY picky about games, there is tons to be hyped for.


Sounds like a whole lot of sequels nothing original. Dont get me wrong im personally looking foward toward
some of those games.

With magazines and various websites, using E3 as a preview tool doesn't interest me. I see enough previews of games already. Besides, I have a huge backlog, so while there are certainly upcoming games I'm interested in, I'm not super-excited for anything.

Beyond that, E3 is also used as a hype machine (which experienced gamers should be growing immune to), using either amazing trailers that show no gameplay footage for lackluster games (Dead Island), or as ways of hyping up games by showing content and features that just get cut before release.

Being perpetually optimistic means the same thing. If something doesn't meet my expectations, I shrug and move on, completely unaffected. You can be optimistic without investing yourself in something.
