Best, Worst and OK of E3 2017?

 Pages 1 2 NEXT
 

Hello everyone,

So E3 is almost ccome to an end. this years E3 imo i have to say its a big dissapointment, its one of the worst E3 ever. considering last few years E3 has improved. but it looks like this year they drop the ball big time. but now lets talk about winners and losers, which game impress you most? and which game dissapoint you most? what games you think are best and what games you think are worst?

here i start.

Best

Im Impressed by 2 games most.

Metro Exodus: Looks absolutely brilliant despite trailer was not good but its show amazing world, atmosphere and graphics. since it was not gameplay. We have need Metro game since long long time. the last metro game was released 5 years ago and its longest development Metro game. its now a non linear sandbox game in the vien of Stalker. Easily game of the show and put all games to shame this year.

Kingdom Come Deliverance: Even thought its not shown at conference but E3 trailer was released few days ago and it looking excellent. Its develop by mafia 1 developer so expecting excellent story. its sword play and combat looking realistic. its finally not another generic medieval RPG with dragons, trolls instead its more historical realistic.

Worst

Now its time for worst and this E3 show tons of terrible games after terrible games like ubisoft shown a no man sky ripoff, black flag ripoff online pvp, just dance etc.

Wolfenstein 2 new clossus - Looking absolute terrible, feel like new order all over again. with too many cutscenes of terrible story, shitty gameplay and combat, AI. just like new order is call of wolfenstein, this is call of wolfenstein 2

Star wars battlefront 2 - what can i say about this game? DICE star wars aka battlefield in star wars skin. and even BF fans hated first game so why bother making sequel? and SP? DICE never made one good before. they wont make one after.

Far cry 5 - This franchise is as stale as stale bread. its using same old recycle formula of FC3 which was fairly decent game and making it worse version out of it. it looks like far cry with buddy system. looks boring.

Spiderman - A one button combat from arkham games into spiderman? great.

Life is strange - Its a Movie

OK

Now its time for OK or alright games

Evil within - Dislike the first game. but this game can be better if they use id tech 6 instead of 5. so it can be decent.

So my friends, lets talk about good, the bad, the ugly of this years E3.

Best was Evil Within 2. Barely cared about anything else.

Ezekiel:
Best was Evil Within 2. Barely cared about anything else.

they need to fix awful controlling and awful optimization. last game use id tech 5 thats why it was complete mess.

this one if use id tech 6 might be step up from previous game.

btw what about metro my friend? you are not impressed by it? its an excellent series.

B-Cell:

You know an engine doesn't make for a good game right? Like them using a new system isn't going to automatically make the game good.

because Id tech 5 was failed engine and every game ruined because of it. thats why id software use id tech 6 to Doom instead of id Tech 5.

CritialGaming:

B-Cell doesn't understand such complex logical issues, so don't bother.

On-Topic: I'm going to have to admit: I liked Wolfenstein: The New Order and want to play The Old Blood at some point, hopefully before New Colossus releases so I can jump straight into it.

But the other big one, well... You already know where I'm going.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. Number one, we're going back to Strangereal. Number two, a lot of the major players in the development of the PS2 Ace Combat games are working on this one. If Project Aces aren't screwed over by corporate, AC7: SU is pretty much guaranteed to be pure awesome.

best
life is strange
wolfenstein
far cry 5
x-com

worst
anthem.. *glares*

meh
kingdom come..the story trailer killed off my interest, been there done that before. i do hope the gameplay and world makes up for it

Best:

1) Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

The New Order revitalized my dwindling interest in FPS games when it came out, so I'm pretty happy to see this one being announced with a decent length trailer. The world being put on display is definitely something I want to engross myself in, so consider me intrigued by how the setting has evolved during BJ's recovery. The gunplay looks weighty and visceral. Having a relatable protagonist is a plus, especially a protagonist that shows weary strain and exasperation via internal monologues was a nice touch to making BJ appear sympathetic -- I hope they keep those little moments in the sequel.

2) Code Vein

I like the aesthetics. I just hope the combat system is satisfying.

Okay:

1) The Evil Within 2

I never played the first one. I heard unfavorable reports from people here on the Escapist. So, I have no real attachment to the series. All that aside, if it shares anything in common with Resident Evil 4, I could see myself getting more intrigued by it.

2) God of War 4

I'm a sucker for Norse Mythology.
Other than that, it looks interesting from a gameplay standpoint. Who knows, this one might pull a rabbit out of the hat. Then again I can't play it, I don't own a console.

Worst:

None.
It's probably not my cup of tea or I'll wait for more information. I'm not a child that needs to validate my biases by putting down other games.

---

It is a shame that this E3 was rather lackluster (No Bloodborne port for PC? I've glued many an eye of my fellow neighbors onto myself in dedication, yet I see no hope in this endeavor.) Hopefully there will be some interesting developments on the indie scene in the meantime.

Dragonball FighterZ is absolutely the biggest surprise and showing this e3, the hype for that game in the fighting game and dbz communities is unreal.

There is no such thing as Best at E3. Its all lies and slander. The best you can hope for is which game will get the least downgrades and has the least amount of lies spun into its hype web.

So in that light, I think if Battlefront 2 actually has a single-player campaign and an arcade mode, it might be the best of the least lied about. If its a shitty 3 hour demo, and extremely limited 2 map one game mode arcade with everything else as DLC(which...they'd never ever ever ever ever ever do that. That's just silly!) then I'm retroactively naming Bf2 the most worst.

Meh goes to that Metroid game. I won't be playing it, but there is little to lie about and downgrade, seeings how Nintendo sets the bar so low for Metroid games.

Worst goes to everyone's memories. Every year we go through this charade, every year we get a 'OMG Who won?!' '4k so kawai!' 'Notice me Ubisoftchan!' and for the rest of the year promise after promise, game after game, falls apart like a card house in a hurricane.
Glad to see the overall opinion is it was shit, but that needs to be tempered with memories that its always shit. Even when its good, with great games, its shit and lies. So imagine what feculence we'll be getting for the rest of 2017?

Steam says I played 50 minutes of 2033. I didn't care for it.

all the metroids

worst:

Ubisoft

just...Ubisoft

Original metro 2033 was buggy mess but i stil liked it alot. however series get improve with last light and then redux version of 2033 which improve more.

2033 redux was much better game. and show how to done remastered.

You...do realize this thread seems has already been done, right?

Fine, I'll play, but going by what I've seen, not the mere presence of a game

THE BEST

-Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (never played any Wolfenstein, but it looks absolutely bonkers, so, um, yay?)

-Sea of Thieves (because its trailer absolutely oozed charm)

-Metroid: Samus Returns (well, I've been hankering for a 2D Metroid for awhile, so, um, yay?)

-Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (because it's a Xenoblade Chronicles game - 'nuff said)

-Sonic Forces (like where this is going, even though I'm not a fan of the boost gameplay of 3D Sonic - prefer the Adventure 1/2/Heroes version)

THE WORST

-Digital Devolver's 'press conference'

-Anthem (I'm far more sympathetic to this than most, but even so, it looks bland. Bland premise, bland gameplay, bland forced multiplayer chatter)

-Assassin's Creed Origins (I don't even play the AC games and I'm bored by this. But, I think this has potential, even though I'm not one to talk)

-Skull & Bones (a less interesting version of Sea of Thieves)

Everything else would fall in the "meh" category or stuff I can't comment on.

Wait, I agree? This can't be right!

Now its time for worst and this E3 show tons of terrible games after terrible games like ubisoft shown a no man sky ripoff,

B-Cell:
black flag ripoff

You mean Skull and Bones? I don't think one can rip-off their own IP.

The best thing to me was the announcement that there's going to be a new Brothers if Arms game, finally. And I don't even know if that was officially part of E3.

Worst part was nothing, but this year was really just a big...meh. I mean, I didn't see anything that I thought was dumb, but there was nothing that really got me hyped. I already knew about the games that I'm looking forward to, so it was just kind of...whatever.

Best/Okay
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
The Evil Within 2
God of War 4

Worst
"Beyond Good and Evil 2"

B cell doesn't like Wolfenstein? That's actually surprising.

Best
Wolfenstein 2, Monster Hunter World

Worst
Skyrim version 1,509,397,349,201.091
AC : Origins
Doom VR (because I see literally no chance you can capture Doom while not giving anyone using VR insane motion sickness or headaches)

Ok
Probably most of the rest of it.

EA was piles of stuff I'm totally apathetic too.
I've always hated Xbox controllers so MS is out.
Last I heard, Switch's were battery eaters and also literally melting themselves. Along with Nintendo's garbage social media stances and engineered rarity of their products, I'm not touching any of their stuff.
Ubisoft is mostly more of the same, a game that doesn't actually exist yet and is a sequel to a game I never played, and another game that will depend almost entirely on them choosing to actually support it with servers.
Sony's only real announcement was game I would've thought was just Last of Us if there hadn't been an article saying it was a different game.
Bethesda had Wolfenstein, and I guess Dishonored DLC that I might get eventually. But mostly was trying to shill their slightly repackaged 6 year old game that I didn't even like originally. And Evil Within 2, when Evil Within 1 is probably one of the worst AAA offerings of this generation that I've played.

I don't get the praise both CDPR and now 4A Games get. I played a couple hours of the last Metro, it was OK from a gameplay standpoint. Neither dev has yet to make a game with good GAMEplay yet. Sorry, but Witcher 3's gameplay was ass, even movement sucked let alone the combat system. Also, since when does B-Cell champion a game with quick-time events?

I'm definitely more interested for Spiderman, Evil Within 2, and the new Wolfenstein because those devs have made good games before. I'm definitely more interested in a Mikami game (even one that's a sequel to a game I haven't played) than a game from a dev that hasn't made a good game yet. I'm not really too excited for Spiderman because Arkham combat wore out its welcome awhile back already because every freaking game ripped it off (all the way down to Uncharted 3). Maybe with the right tweaks and years between playing a game with said combat, it will feel good again... maybe... hopefully... A good Spiderman game would be very welcome. And, New Order was the 1st Wolfenstein game I played because the "What if" scenario interested me and it was a pretty solid FPS, nothing amazing but good/solid gameplay with a pretty decent story, although I should've gotten that fucking power suit damnit!!!

E3 was pretty damn uneventful. I don't see any of the games showed being as good as Dishonored 2, The Last Guardian, Prey, or Horizon. I fear another 3+ years of really no great games from the AAA industry, which literally just happened prior to November 2016. When a remake of a Team ICO game is the best you have to offer, it says a lot.

Seth Carter:
B cell doesn't like Wolfenstein? That's actually surprising.

What rock you been living under? Wolfenstein is linear, has cutscenes, and romance. All of that's "bad," don't ya know?

Best:
Nothing.
Lots of a CG trailers with no gameplay and a lot of games being revisited from last years E3. If the goal of E3 is to hype me for upcoming games it failed to do so. That's not to say I won't buy a single game from E3....it just means that nothing I read/heard/saw is anything I'm eager to add to my existing wish list.

Worst:
- 6 years of reselling Skyrim dozens of times and we're still not done.
- VR focus on a technology that was pushed to market FAR earlier than it had any right to be.
- Heavy focus on CG only trailers
- lack of indie focus all around. Very disappointing.

OK:
-New Wolfenstein looks like more of the same and while that's not exciting it should still be a good time. It's very likely I'll buy this game when it drops below $20.00 on a steam sale.

- The Elder Scrolls Legends Expansion. I'm among the few people who really enjoys this free to play hearthstone competitor and the expansion is more than welcome.

Summary: E3 2017 is all about potential. There's a lot of games that could go either way and very little was showcased to generate any real sense of hype. I'm pretty okay with that to be honest. I really don't need to add another 5+ games to a wishlist when so many great games have been coming out of the last 2 years to occupy my time.

It could be the best playing FPS of all time and he'd still complain that it turned a once great old school shooter into a scripted cinematic game.

The game seems pretty uninspired, though. An old lady Nazi with a scarred face, again? Plus, the main character died at the end of the last one. If I remember correctly, he ordered a nuke fired on his position. Why does anything matter if he can just get out of everything? Lame. It should have had a new protagonist.

Best:

Uncharted: Lost Legacy
What can I say: The formula still works even without Drake thanks to Chloe. Solid gameplay with great visuals and intresting characters.

The Last Night
Very interesting. Visually it reminds me of Blade Runner, the video game. It has an intriguing political message on top of it.

Shift
Most people seem to have not paid attention to the ID @ Xbox trailer, well I did. That one looked sick: Fluid side scroller with superb art style.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown
Finally a real Ace Combat! Been so long because Infinity and Assault Horizon are no Ace Combat. So it is been 10 years!
Can't wait.

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wild Lands
I liked the game so ofc I'm in for an expansion.

Okay:

Shadows of Colossus
A remake... but I haven't played the original so I'm kinda okay with it. Still why waste time doing this instead of a new game?

Star Wars: Battlefront 2
I'm in for the campaign: HAIL THE EMPIRE!

Ashen
I don't quite get it. Is it MP? I want it to be SP, if it is SP I would dig it.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps
Looks as good as the first one which was okay.

Assassin's Creed: Origins
Looks as okay as any AC. I haven't played an AC since Black Flag so maybe I would be okay to play one again.

Anthem
I would count it as best if it wasn't for the fact that EA/BioWare seems to try to copy Destiny and Destiny is not good. Maybe they fix the broken system it will make fun? Who knows. It looks cool but so did Destiny.

God of War
Visually impressive I just hate kids... the kid with Kratos all the time? - NOOOOOOOOO!!!

Middle Earth: Shadow of War
More of the same I guess? Looks alright, haven't played the first one maybe this one?

CodeVein
Yes yes WeeaboSouls... whatever. I hope for a better combat system and easier difficulty

Worst:

Beyond Good & Evil 2
CGI trailer... go home.

Metroid Prime 4
A logo only? You got to be fucking kidding me... fuck off.

Ishigami:
Shadows of Colossus
A remake... but I haven't played the original so I'm kinda okay with it. Still why waste time doing this instead of a new game?

Bluepoint Games does not make new games.

I'm not interested. Shadow of the Colossus didn't need a remake. I've already played it... countless times. I got bored the last time and stopped after, I think, the fourth colossus. There's nothing new here.

Doom was linear (outside of one level), and had cutscenes too (although mostly in engine).

Well, no-one has accused B-cell of consistency or articulated opinions.

Best:
God of war 4
Wolfenstein 2
Metro exodus
Farcry 5
Detroit - Hopefully choices matter this time. Probabaly not.

Worst:
Anthem - Probably not a bad game, but not what i wanted from Bioware, at all.
Yet another rerelease of Skyrim and Fallout!
Paid mods - let other people fix and improve your game and still get paid for it.
Insert any VR title

Best: Metroid: Samus Returns. It's been way too long since the last 2d Metroid game, and Metroid 2 has probably aged the worst out of the older games (Metroid 1 has the benefits of being remade already with Zero Mission and Super Metroid is basically perfect) plus OMG METROID ISN'T DEAD!!!!

God of War actually looks pretty interesting for once, hoping they finally make Kratos an interesting character

Days Gone looks much better than what was shown last year

Anthem looks pretty awesome

Mario+Rabbids, I am kind of disgusted at how hype I am for a game with Rabbids in it

meh: the entirety of EA and Bethesda's conferences, nothing terrible offensive, but nothing too exciting either

Metroid Prime 4, would be in the best section but nothing but a title was shown and the game's likely more than a year away, if not 2 years

worst: Spiderman looks like qte the video game

Amiibo's for everything! (though I do want that Metroid Amiibo)

Best: Wolfenstein 2!!!

Worst: Paidmodsland by Bethesda (&Skyrim)

Wat: Devolver

Best:
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
Spider-Man
Kingdom Come Deliverance
Wolfenstein 2

Ok:
Anthem
AC:Origins
Detroit Become Human
God of War 4
Star Wars Battlefront 2

Worst:
Paid Mods
Skyrim and Fallout again

Ishigami:

Okay:

Shadows of Colossus
A remake... but I haven't played the original so I'm kinda okay with it. Still why waste time doing this instead of a new game?

They did a new game. It was called the Last Guardian and it dropped last year. It only took the better part of a decade.

Ishigami:

Assassin's Creed: Origins
Looks as okay as any AC. I haven't played an AC since Black Flag so maybe I would be okay to play one again.

I'm willing to give the series one more shot if they can show they're serious about the meta-plot and the game is fun to play(some of the garbage stripped out what be nice). The overall story has barely moved since AC3(with a bit of lip service in 4). After a couple years of stallign for time, they had better have something by now.

Ishigami:

Worst:

Beyond Good & Evil 2
CGI trailer... go home.

I'm disappointed apparently that whole Shani thing from BGaE apparently is never going to get explained.

Kind of feels like if we got a new Half-Life game...and it's a prequel of all things.

Best: Skyrim and fallout 4 VR. I'm definitely pixking up a PSVR now.Mario oddesey and kirby. I want to add metroid prime 4, but i have no info on that.

Worst: That prison break game ( forgot it's name), and that pirate ship game. Also final fantasy 14 VR fishing. Everthing EA showed.

Meh: all those shooters. Haven't those CoD shooter fans grown up yet?

Best:
Metroid
Metro Exodus
Wolfenstein 2

Meh:
Everything else, save for whatever is under Worst

Worst:
Beyond Good & Evil 2, that meaningless CGI lie.

Dreiko:
Dragonball FighterZ is absolutely the biggest surprise and showing this e3, the hype for that game in the fighting game and dbz communities is unreal.

The problem with games like that, is usually the player base dwindles pretty damn quickly. And all that is left is a few hardcore fans.*cough*Persona4Arena*cough*.

And i absolutely loved P4A. So I'm a little bitter.

Best:
Metro Exodus
Wolfenstein The New Colossus
The Last Night

Okay:
Everything else.

I tuned out on anything that was actively bad. Crackdown did look pretty rough, though.

Why do they treat Phil Spencer like some kind of rockstar? That was the most baffling thing I saw. He was a panty's throw away from pyrotechnics blasting from the stage as he enters at top speed, pumping coked up fists into the air, shouting "Spencer's back, bayyybiiii!!" What does he even do? But I digress.

Best: Hmmmphlkooophi!*

Medium best: Oomphmmm!*

Medium middle: ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...*

Medium worst: eghhhhh?*

Worst: Eyyyygkharrrrgle!*

*I can't get past this quantum indecision, due to every announcement having various asterisks accompanying them like a silver bar with a cloud lining on a cloud full of cloud linings. But those noises did occur. And I'd rather not be any more cynical already. Although Hellblade and Pyre might arouse a little. Have a song!
