Sony opened up with the show with some sweet music and visuals, granted probably unnecessary but a pleasant addition. Their E3 press conference was all about the games though. Shawn Layden made an appearance only twice during the shorter than usual presentation. (Granted it was shorter than other years but I thought the games they showcased were very good, even the VR stuff). They started off strong and it got somewhat weak in the middle but they ended it strong with a lengthy Spiderman demo. One criticism I have is on the release dates. Not a lot of the games they showed are coming out this year and some didn’t even have a release date shown, so that’s frustrating.
There’s been a lot of criticism about the Spiderman game after yesterday because of all the quick time events, but to me, it’s just like playing Uncharted. I thought the gameplay looked awesome and graphics were top notch.
The games I’m most excited for are Spiderman, Days Gone, and of course God of War. Detroit: Become human looks intriguing but need to see more gameplay and what exactly you do in the game. Shadow of the Colossus is a classic and I definitely will play it again in full HD.
I’ll post more blogs relating to certain games when they get closer to their respective release date. Comment and share below!
Of course, if you missed it, here is the full press conference plus all the official trailers.
