Did you grow up with games like Monkey Island? Does the name Fred Edison conjure fond memories? Do you often wonder whether Zak McKracken was underrated or just not very good? Thimbleweed Park is probably the video game for you.

As has become annual tradition, I sat down with Bungie at E3 last week for a frank discussion about the state of Destiny, a video game in which players travel through space trying to convince internet commenters that yes, people still play Destiny.
The funny thing about E3 is how it's all about That First Reaction. The curtains rise. The lights dim. The speakers begin to boom. Or in Sony's case, the orchestra.
And then everything comes to a close and the internet sits around deciding Who Won. But in my case, I went back and rewatched everything. The trailers, the speeches, the streams. All of it. At least three times. And you know what? I'm bloody glad I did.
Between interviews, video shoots and encounters with mascots, I played a bunch of games at and around E3 last week. Let me tell you about them.
Hey E3 was pretty good right?
Well, it was better than I expected it to be. Zelda looked incredible, Sony showed off new games, Microsoft announced two new consoles for some reason.
Anyway, on the off chance that you hid under a really big sound-proof rock for a week, this video does a great job of (hilariously) summing up E3 2016.
Hollywood effects studio Spectral Motion were hired by Sony to create a little something for Horizon Zero Dawn's E3 demo. The suit they came up with ended up being one of the lowkey stars of the entire show.
Remember when Titanfall was just an idea and video footage? Remember when it looked like the wildest multiplayer shooter ever? I sort of miss that. It sucks that Titanfall was released and blew over almost instantly.
I'm hoping the sequel delivers on something a bit more substantial. If this new gameplay footage is anything to go it just might.

I came here to enjoy games." - A father discusses the "really disappointing" open-to-the-public E3 Live show this week. The ESA said 20,000 people attended the free event just a block away from E3 proper.
