Everyone has their personal favorite moments from E3 2017 so I figured it was worth picking my personal 7. Lets start with Mario + Rabbids: kingdom battle.
The creative director of this game had tears of joy when he saw his game finally being showed to the public. Imagine how it must feel to work on something for months or years and keep it a private?
Fallout 4 VR and Doom VR
Bethesda announced a strong lineup for 2017 including Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. However, This is the year for the Virtual Reality to step up as a legitimate platform for gaming.
EA lets Youtubers take the stage
Its good to see that EA understands the value of media personalities but it was obvious that some of the Youtubers had no experience with speaking to crowds. It was awkward to watch but at least its better than seeing a B-list celebrity who know nothing about video games.
Spider-Man looks amazing!
That demo was organized perfectly. It answered a good amount of our questions as each minute went by. How will Spider-Man fight? How does he swing? Does his web stick to the buildings? I already watched the demo 3 times. I can’t wait to see more! Insomniac Games was the perfect choice for this project.
Assassin’s Creed Origins
How many Assassin’s Creed games are there? Don’t forget about the spin off games and the books. Assassin’s Creed Origins might the right move for Ubisoft. Going back to the beginning is the perfect point for people like me to jump back in and for new people to be re-introduced. Only problem is what happens after AC: Origins. Will the series be rebooted or will it go back to explaining a super long story most of us don’t care for?
Many people was disappointed that there was no mention of The Last of Us 2 and its a shame cause the new God of War look just as good. I remember playing god of war ascension and feeling bored of Kratos. I never finished that game cause I didn’t care. It was a prequel so I already knew the ultimate ending for him. This new God of War is something completely unexpected which makes it my most anticipated game of 2018.
Janina Gavankar’s big day
I already did a blog post on Janina Gavankar and Battlefront 2 but I felt it was worth mentioning again. My favorite moment of E3 was seeing her on stage and telling everyone that her mom was back stage and that it was a big day for her. Personally, Watching a moment like that is more special than a shocking new game announcement.

What about Metroid? What about Xbox One X? or Behind Good and Evil 2? We all had our personal favorite moments but those are my personal picks, I admit that this was a big E3 and its a joy to see the industry growing.
