Another year, another E3. Lots of good games, but to be honest I'm a bit jaded with most of them. Seems like it's a new FPS or 3rd person shooter about a futuristic soldier for hire who fights terrorists or rebels or whatnot. And he's usually called Jake Drake, Sam Richards or Dave Flint. Same old games with HD graphics. I'm sure they'll be decent games, but it's nothing to get me excited about.
At the risk of sounding like a Nintendo fanboy, the Nintendo games did excite me and made me want to get a Wii console right now. Heck, make it yesterday! The new Mario, Super Mario Galaxy looks great, Super Smash Bros Brawl looks fantastic with Solid Snake as a playable character. Looks like lots of fun. And there's a delightful DS surprise in the form of Yoshi's Island 2, one of my favourite games ever.
So yay. All in all, it was a good E3. I'm not bothered about not going. Sure, I'd like to go once just for the sake of it, but I actually prefer sitting at home/work and watch the trailers on the computer than actually que up for ages to play the game for only five minutes. It's like taking just a tiny little bite out of delicious food when you're starving.
