100 Words or Less: Ripe E3 Hype


E3, arguably the biggest annual event in gaming, is nearly — I’m using the word “nearly” very loosely here — upon us and the internet is already abuzz with pre-E3 commentary. It’s impossible to ignore the sheer volume of E3-related opinion pieces, wishlists and speculation-laden YouTube videos.

Isn’t it a bit early to board the hype train? How many articles on Fallout 4 do we really need? I can sum up each and every Fallout 4 article right here, right now: “Fallout 4 announcement at the Bethesda Conference!?” There you go.

Everyone likes to get pumped for big events like this one… but I think this hype may be overripe.

There’s my fun-sized blog post about E3 hype. Hope you enjoyed it!

    I never watch E3. It bores me to be honest. Half of the show if random Microsoft and Sony people trying to be “entertaining” instead of showing us the games.

    I never write about “game journalism” because it doesn’t exist. Writing about something someone has already covered isn’t game journalism. It’s just copying and pasting someone’s work.

    I might watch the Bethesda conference because I love just about everything they do, but I’m not touching Xbox or Playstation stuff this year.

      I think E3 is pretty fun. That being said, I found E3 2014 to be uneventful, but this year should be better.

      I believe it’s more fun to blog about video games than to report on them. That’s just my preference though. Not sure if I have much of an opinion on game journalism myself.

      Bethesda’s conference should be tons of fun. And, you’re right, they make magnificent games so I can’t imagine being disappointed with anything they have to say. Not sure if Microsoft or Sony’s press conferences will measure up to Bethesda’s, but I will probably end up blogging (or at the very least tweeting) about them as well.

        I’ll only watch it if there’s nothing else on when it comes on. I’ll watch Bethesda, and Nintendo, but that’s it.
