This E3 may not be the best one ever, but there's a lot to be excited about. Whether it was new information, or gameplay from titles we already knew about, or surprise announcements (looking at you Ubisoft), it was definitely enough to get me excited. Here are some that interested me the most (in no particular order).
Vampires were already a part of Skyrim, but a small part. Unless you just really wanted to become a vampire, there wasn't much point in it. Other vampires were still hostile, you were weak during the day, and people attacked you on site if you didn't feed regularly. With Dawnguard, that's about to change. Not only will there be a vampire group, there's a whole new vampire form, (which looks pretty horrifying), and new spells. On top of that, both werewolves, and vampires are getting their own perk tree. This is definitely looking to be a great expansion for Skyrim.
Anybody that knows me, knows I'm a huge fan of the Assassin's Creed series. And Assassin's Creed III is looking amazing. Movement is looking much smoother then before, and combat seems to be faster, and more aggressive. The new time era, and setting was something I was skeptical about at first, but the more I see, the better it looks. October can't get here fast enough.
I was extremely excited to get more information on games I already knew about, but I was also hoping for at least one surprise announcement. Ubisoft took care of that nicely. Although little is known about Watch Dogs, it was enough to get me excited. It looks as if you'll be using technology to your advantage in a big way. I can't wait to learn more about this one.
Though there were somethings I didn't like about it (why would you replace the laser aiming?!), there was a lot more that I liked. From the looks of Leon's gameplay demo, there will be slower paced creepy sections. Which I love. It's also great that we can now move and shoot. Hopefully the mix of action, and horror is balanced nicely.
To be Honest, I'm still not quite sure what to think of Dead Space 3 yet. It no longer takes place in a dark ship. And now has co-op. Hopefully this can be a good thing, but it kinda concerns me that co-op will kill every bit of creepiness in it. Hopefully it can prove me wrong.
I've never been much of a Tomb Raider fan. I remember trying the series on the first Playstation, and never really getting into it. So when the reboot was announced, I never paid much attention. However from the gameplay I've seen, it's looking amazing! I really like the focus on survival it seems to have. Hopefully the gameplay is as fun as it looks.
The Last of Us was definitely the highlight for me. Naughty Dog never, EVER disappoints. And this was no exception. It's the attention to detail that really brings the world alive. How the game reacts to every situation, so well amazes me. A shotgun goes off during a struggle, enemies react to the click of your gun when you're out of ammo, and so many other details I don't have room to post. I absolutely cannot wait for this game.
