This year's E3 spectacle was as awe-inspiring and bizarre as ever.
Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo hogged the most floor space, while smaller publishers fought for attention with strange and eye-catching displays. Booth babes were at an all-time low, but there is no reason to complain when you have a bounce house to enjoy. Both major halls of the L.A. Convention Center were packed with massive recreations of videogame characters and related iconic imagery, such as a massive metallic pod that housed the Aliens: Colonial Marines presentation.
Crowds came in droves to get their hands on a Wii U (a three-four hour wait) or to view the Modern Warefare 3 trailer at Activision's booth. Bethesda also pulled no punches, creating a giant dragon that was visible across the show floor.
