E3 2010: Tito's Five Favorite Games

Picking that best to see at this year's E3.

I'm glad I'm not the only one excited about Enslaved. The day I heard about it, I had a feeling I was going to love it, and I have no idea why either. All I can say is that I plan on getting it as soon as it comes out (I haven't done a blind purchase in quite some time so it should be fun).

Heh! I know EXACTLY how you feel with Civ5! I havnt taken a full week off (Unfortunatly ><) but I have taken 3 days off! So I can enjoy the glory that is Civ!

The tweaks they have made certainly seem like its going to be something completly new!

I've never heard Enslaved, but from the way you described it, it looks like something I want to check out.
Oh, and sorry about the Celtics. I'll... I'll just go. :P

Wait... there's a tactics game in the vein of Final Fantasy Tactics coming out!?!

How was I not aware of this?

Enslaved was pretty much the only game I saw at E3 that I was interested in.

Magic and Civ do sound pretty cool. I've never played a Civ game (Go ahead, kick meh in the groin) but if you would take a week off work for it, I'm sure it's got to be interesting.

I'm quite impressed with your lineup Mr. Tito. I too am impressed with what was actually new and exciting IPs beyond the sequels and repainted versions of things we already have. The XBLA lineup impressed me 100% and I hope that we see more media coverage of games that are both fun, innovative and affordable. Escapist is one of the few media outlets that gives even coverage to over-marketed and under-marketed games.

I still don't understand the hype for Rage. Anyone wanna explain?

5 games I won't be getting. Civ 5 is the only game that even looks half decent on that list.

Woohoo for a Civ Fan. :D

The Random One:
Enslaved was pretty much the only game I saw at E3 that I was interested in.

Yeah I've said this in a few places, but I'll say it again.. The imagination behind this game isn't going to be truly appreciated for a little while after it comes out. To see a futuristic story set as a retelling of Journey to the West with some cool looking game play excites the lit. nerd in me.

Greg Tito:
It has great talents working on it like Andy Serkis from LOTR and a good scriptwriter, and its story of playing a character that's being forced to act against his will is pretty neat.

Err..I feel compelled to ask this Greg Tito, whats your relationship with your seniors at work like?.

Greg Tito:

The relationship of slaver and slave is all sturm and drang at the start of the story, but you know that Monkey and Trip are going to end up romantically tangled before the ending cinematic rolls. Maybe it's the anticipation of such a romcom concept wrapped into a decent action game that tugged at my heart strings. Or maybe I'm just a sucker for post-apocalyptic New York.

New York, ahhh got it.

You don't mind game Developers destroying your home town?, its just I don't stand for people depicting Paris in a dilapidated state, most French people don't actually, Twisted Metal 2 got away with it thanks to its quite clearly mad as a bat game design.

But not those chimps in Hollywood, I went to see Armageddon in South of France and most of the cinema left when a meteor strike hit Paris.

CIV V is just one game i waiting for soon i my hands =)

Wow, Magic the Gathering: Tactics sounds really interesting. I hadn't heard of it before now. The more turn-based strategy games the better, if you ask me.

And of course, Civ V will be epic in every possible way. Can't wait for it.

Do most French people not like to see the destruction of Paris because of the destruction that took place during WW2? Because if so, then remember the Americans have never experienced such an event and so it's probably very far removed from reality for them. I'm actually British, so this is just what I would guess anyway!

Thats actually plausible, Americans haven't been devastated in a literal sense, I mean the great depression and all but not actually BOMBED, it might go some way to explaining Michael Bay's fascination with explosions.

France gave up France as a battleground in exchange for Paris not being touched, having those chimps in Hollywood then lay it to waste just for a special effect angered us, we like Paris... France just isn't France without the beauty of Paris. Kinda like a bath without an aroma therapy candle, it gets the job done but COME ON!.

Or another tortured analogy maybe is that Formula 1 isn't really Formula 1 without Ferrari.

Thanks JoJo, your comment made me question myself and I just spent ten minutes actually retyping what I wrote because you made me think, kudos to you, I give you todays "two thumbs up" award.

Wow, that's the coolest response I've ever had, thanks :-)

All of the Parisians that I know cheer whenever the Eiffel tower gets destroyed.
And America has had some pretty destructive moments aside from the obvious 9/11 deal. Pearl Harbor was a massive bombing, then in the Civil War (like all civil wars) we did a pretty good job at raping and pillaging one another. The Battle of Antietam left a scar big enough that really you can still visit there and just know something big happened.
