E3 2011 Was On A Boat

The hottest trend at E3 this year? It wasn't shooters; it wasn't connectivity; it wasn't butt-sliding or trains or social network wrappers. It was boats. Did you notice?

The people at FirstPlayUK did, selecting the boat-centric scenes from trailers for Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Tomb Raider, Resistance 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Soulcalibur V, and The Adventures of Tintin. They set it to "I'm On A Boat" by The Lonely Island, which is full of F-bombs and mermaid sex references, so consider the audio NSFW.

The "On A Boat E3 2011 MegaMix" peppers in some Saints Row: The Third and Infamous 2 footage where appropriate, but it's by no means E3 boat exhaustive. The video's makers were focusing primarily on PlayStation 3 games, so they missed another big game on a big boat, Gears of War 3.

    That was fantastic. I hadn't noticed the boat theme

    Wait a minute, if you combine the other E3 trend of the Kanye West song Power with this one you get...... POWER BOATS!!!!

    For sure the best gameplay video to come out of E3.

    Sweet Jesus those scenes from uncharted 3 look intense!

    Don't forget about Resident Evil: Revelations\

    I wish I had a boat.

    2:45 long and they still had to throw in clips that weren't boat related to pad it out. No wonder why no one else noticed this trend...

    Is this an improving technology thing maybe?
