My E3 Game of the Show

agm My E3 Game of the Show

Hey guys, just a quick little article here. E3 is over now and I have had some time to reflect on what my game of the show was. Honestly it was a very tough choice but I think I made the right one. For those that know me well, my choice will probably surprise and shock you. So, without further ado, I present to you, my E3 Game of the Show.

Most of you who know me or just have read my articles on the site and posts in the forums will know that I love my XBOX 360. Some may say I’m a 360 fanboy, and yes that may be true in some cases. I love the 360 and I love the games for it. This is why I was shocked when I arrived at my decision for E3 Game of the Show.

My E3 Game of the Show is Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. There I said it! A PS3 game is the game that impressed me most at E3 2009. The demo shown at Sony’s press conference was truly amazing. From the gorgeous visuals, to the non-stop action I was blown away.

The game had never really been on my radar, being a PS3 game and me not owning a PS3, I had always known about the game but had never really been that into it. After seeing it at E3 though I know I have to find a way to play this game.

I have also seen footage of the multiplayer beta that is currently going on and that looks like great fun also. The storyline of the game, the writing and the characters also all look top-notch, like something out of a Hollywood movie.

Overall Uncharted 2: Among Thieves just looks like a damn fine game that I would love to play. Now it’s time to start saving some cash to get me a Ps3. *crosses fingers for a price drop*

    You know as soon as I read the header “My E3 Game of the Show” I knew it was Uncharted 2 lol! Mainly because of how shocked during the Liveblog you were but I couldn’t agree more! I was completely blown away!

    Uncharted is still my favorite PS3 game to date and that game is just fanstastic! Sequels most of the time are not even close to the original and Uncharted 2 definitely looks to surpass the Drake’s Fortune!

    BTW the Uncharted 2 MP Beta is alot of fun!

    Can’t wait for this one, day one!

    Uncharted 2 does look awesome. I have to say though that for me the show stopper was probably Halo: ODST.

    Why does somebody always got to throw Halo into it? There’s more to gaming than just Halo, this post is called E3 Game of the Show and ODST was far from it. ODST isn’t anymore impressive anymore than Halo 3. Thus a retail expansion pack for $60. Although it looks good and i’m getting that game there’s noway it was even close to Uncharted 2 and that’s a fact. ODST a show stopper? Nice try!

      For me, yes. ODST was one of the best I had the pleasure of getting my hands on at E3.
      Again though – for myself. I think the inclusion of a wave based co-op mode is exactly what Halo 3 was missing. Ever since Horde Mode popped up on Gears of War 2 the thought of playing something similar with a Halo skin has been on my mind ever since. I suppose I tread on the side of Fanboyism where this is concerned but I can’t lie to myself – that game rocked.

    My Game of show had to be Assassin’s Crees 2. But Uncharted2 did look amazing. I never really played part 1 so I never go into it.

    AC2 AHHH!!!
