I loved my first E3. Sort of liked my second. Hated every one since. And I didn’t shed a single tear when it was cancelled/downsized.
Speaking less selfishly, E3 is probably good for the industry, if not for developers forced to put something together to show, usually without adequate time or planning. And since I don’t have to attend this year, I can sit on the sideline and look forward to hearing the game and console announcements condensed down to a three day time period.
But the return of “big E3” means that I could be drawn back into that circus all too soon. Joy.
