E3’s digital event officially kicks off today with a hype trailer

It’s either gaming’s biggest event, its most annoying event, or a swiftly obsolete event, depending on whom you ask. One way or another, E3 is starting today at 1:00 p.m. EDT, and the event is drumming up the hype with an announcement trailer.

As readers will recall, the pandemic has forced E3 to be an all-digital event, which was confirmed in April after rumors of the ESA’s decision started cropping up in February. With that in mind, this year’s event will be broadcast on YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook, along with a presence on Twitter. You can also keep it locked here, as we’ll pluck the MMO, MMORPG, and multiplayer-relevant bits from the show. As for that trailer, that can be seen below.

I’ve grown less interested in these big events as time has gone on. So many announcements that I forget what was even announced and so many trailers that do not reflect the final product well at all.

I sometimes wonder if Nintendo’s habit of sometimes announcing a game just months before release is better over all for the industry.

99% of the games they announce never interest me. If I was like a 15-16 year old right now, I’d probably be excited and play most of the games, but now I only play some oldies from like 20 years ago and a few more or less modern MMOs and that’s it. I don’t have the time or desire to play more games as I did back in the day.

Ahh good old E3 the show that does game rerelease on game and lets you pre-order them 2-3 years before it´s even finished. Hyping people so much they get angry and pissy and send death treats to the developers when they delay the game just to end up releasing in an unfinished state or broken state like Fallout 76, Cyberpunk or even no man sky or Asssasin creed unity.

There is a reason I hate E3 becuse gamers are twats and the higher ups are greedy idiots.

As I always say if you want to announce your game do it 2-3 months before it´s actually finished so you can make the game stress free and let it get the time it fucking needs and you avoid all the death threats when you delayed it becuse your where stupid and announced it 2-4 years ago.

But that’s not E3’s fault, is it? They could focus purely on games that come out within the next year, which is doable, and then the next E3 focuses on the games that come out within the next 12 months again. Nintendo has handled the last few releases this way, announcing their games about 4-5 months before release.

Well not really E3 fault but it´s a planform the companies use to advertise their game way way before hand. Well if it is 4-5 months before release when they know they have a game to deliver that is not a broken mess or not even delivering half of what the said at E3.

And as you said E3 focus on game that will come out in 12 month just to build up a hype which 80% of the time results in idiot game getting pissing when the game take more than 12-24 month I seen it so many time which make me question do we rely need this hype fest to sell games ? If your trailer and other marketing can not sell your game then you doing something wrong in the marketing department.

And becuse we can´t tell gamers to stop being such impatient little ass clowns then maybe E3 is not good and maybe they should do like Nintendo and have their little new video thing few times a year
