E3 is often about the biggest names in gaming discussing the biggest franchises in gaming. Most fans are looking to hear more about games they have already heard were coming out, such as Assassin’s Creed 3, Dead Space 3 and Halo 4. But I am always pleasantly surprised when a game gets showcased that I knew nothing about before E3.
The next two days could still surprise me (and they probably will), but right now the most interesting up-and-coming game looks to be Watch Dogs.
Initially, when I watched the announcement trailer, I was immediately turned off. The woman’s voice was grating, and it came across as more of a political fear-mongering ad than announcing a new game. But hearing other gamers buzz about what they saw from the game prompted me to at least check the gameplay demo out.
Let this be a lesson to developers (and myself) — sometimes just showing us what the game is works better than making hundreds of cinematic teaser trailers.
