E3 2017 continues, but all of the major conferences have come and gone. And that means it's time for you to decide the thing that really matters: who won E3.
It's a bit superfluous to say who "won" amongst giant corporations, especially since what happens behind closed doors is often more important than what gets shown off to the public. But publishers and developers put in an awful amount of time getting their conferences and presentations right. It's not uncommon for the platform holders especially to judge how their messaging played out against each other, and so it's only more than fair for us to judge how they did.
I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that most people probably won't be nominating Microsoft or EA this year. EA's conference might have won on the cringe front - they really doubled down on hiring influencers as presenters, and it seems like their entire strategy is just maximising the amount of use they can get out of each streamer/YouTuber's fanbase - but Anthem was the biggest game in their lineup, and the gameplay reveal wasn't in their conference.
Sony's conference was a bit flat too. It was just a string of trailers back to back, with no announcements on what might happen to the Vita, no announcements on improvements to the system software, storefront or other services.
Nintendo on the other hand. Good god. Metroid Prime 4. A core Pokemon game for the Switch. Breath of the Wild DLC at the end of the month. And getting Rocket League on the Switch is an incredibly savvy move, provided the performance isn't too choppy.
For what it's worth, I liked Ubi's conference. No Aisha Tyler was ... I don't know if it was on her so much or the way Ubisoft scripted her, but the conference was a lot snappier this time around and with less real-life memes.
So who won E3? Vote below!
