PixlBit's Final Impressions of E3

Read how the staff reacted to this year's big show.


Julian Titus - Reviews Editor

As someone who spends so much time absorbing video games, E3 is my favorite time of year. It’s Christmas, The Academy Awards, and Wrestlemania all in one. I look at E3 as a reaffirmation of my love for the games industry, as well as a way to get excited for what’s coming along.

While I’m generally positive with each year’s offerings, E3 2013 was one for the record books. I don’t think I’ve been this excited coming out of the big show in ten years. Not to put too fine of a point on it, but I think that if you own a device that plays video games, you’re in for a treat between now and next year’s conference.

Of course, the big news was the first head to head action for the new Sony and Microsoft consoles. While Sony’s incredible showing at their press conference had many gamers declaring that the upcoming console war was already decided, the Xbox One showed off some amazing games, and could very well resonate better with more casual consumers. I think both consoles look great, but I have to give the edge to the PS4, and it’s the console I will be purchasing this year.

I’ll be highlighting all of the great current gen stuff in an exhaustive preview wrap up that’s coming soon, but if you own a console or portable that’s already on the market you are covered in a big way. 2013 will go down as one of those historic years in gaming and we still have a huge list of games coming in the second half of the year alone. Yes friends, if you are passionate about video games there are plenty of amazing games right around the corner, and beyond.

It will be interesting to see where the industry goes. I agree with Mike Wall, the AAA model is not sustainable and the knee-jerk reaction companies have taken to restrict consumer rights to squeeze pennies that will ultimately not fill the void is the elephant in the room. Which way are we going? Can more and varied games save the day? Will there be a competitive market to purchase them in? That's what I'm looking at this generation.
