I was hoping to see either Turning Point 2 or Leisure Suit Larry 2 laugh

I was reading your article. Then you said Titanfall 2 was the best FPS campaign ever made. I literally stopped reading your article at that moment. I played it, and don't get me wrong it was fun, but I can easily rattle off 15 games that have a better campaign:

In no particular order
1) CoD: Modern Warfare
2) Wolfenstein: The New Order
3) DOOM
4) Halo
5) Halo 3
6) Bioshock
7) Bioshock: Infinite
8) Turok
9) 007: Goldeneye
10) Half Life 2
11) Crysis
12) Vanquish
13) Metro 2033
14) Borderlands 2
15) Far Cry 3


Anyway, Titanfall 2 was really good don't get me wrong, but the above games are still better

A new EDF game. I beat the one they put out on the pc recently and it was a blast. 90 levels of bug bashing.
Plus an announcement that EDF 2025 was BC would have been nice also.

Didn't gearbox say they were not going to show borderlands 3 at E3 this year? Wasn't expecting it to appear.

We already know a lot about Red Dead. I believe it's too early for anything on Fable 3. I was surprised we didn't hear anything about Borderlands 3 though. Also, I had hopes for a new Bioshock. Maybe next year.
Don't bro me if you don't know me.

I really just wanted a fable 4 teaser of some sorts. I've been waiting for a new fable for a while.

I was really hoping for a new Sunset Overdrive. Age of Empires and Splinter Cell were pretty surprising as well.

One of the only things I wanted to see was something...anything...regarding Metroid Prime 4. I guess that means the game is still a ways out. So the good news is, I can hold off buying a Switch for awhile longer. headspin

Adding to that

16) Battlefield: Bad Company
17) Spec Ops the Line
18) FEAR 1
19) Brother's in Arm's Road to Hill 30
20) Halo 3: ODST
21) Bioshock 2 (Why list Infinite of all games but not Bioshock 2?)
22) Medal of Honor Frontlines
23) 007 Nightfire
24) The Darkness
25) Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
26) War for Cybertron
27) Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl
30) Timesplitters 2
31) Return to Castle Wolfenstein
32) Escape from Butcher Bay
33) Star Wars Republic Commando
34) Alan Wake
35) Deus Ex

I could keep going, Titanfall 2 is in the lower 100 for me. After all the shooters I have played it just seems woefully generic in comparison. The IMC are now on comic levels of villainy even though Titanfall 1 implied that both sides have some shady stuff going on. The gameplay is rather generic, while the parkour mechanics and the mech do add something it just doesn't make up for terrible enemy AI. Plus a fairly generic plot with fairly standard level design.

I guess if you only played CoD, than any other shooter campaign can seem great after playing that.

Honestly was hoping for a new Dead Rising or Saints Row but considering the lastest installements didn’t do well I don’t think we will be seeing any of those anytime soon.

I wish Phil announced more games to Backwards compatibility like games like dynasty warriors, samurai warriors, warriors orochi, the way of samurai and many JRPGs like final fantasy XIII trilogy and eternal sonata, the last remnant and infinite undiscovery.

I just wanted to see more AAA exclusives. PS is definitely winning the console race but I was hoping that MD would have more than news of acquiring a bunch of studios.

The infamous Walmart leak was proven mostly correct, but a few games in particular were missing.
Eh, that's kind of a stretch. For most of the titles, it seemed like some team made all the obvious guesses as opposed to using proper insider information.

Darksiders 3 - nothing? that saddens me. Also splinter cell, but that could wait.

21) Bioshock 2 (Why list Infinite of all games but not Bioshock 2?)
Because Infinite is infinitely better than #2. That should be obvious from the fact that #2 wasn't even made by the team, and is highly inferior to both the first and infinite.

I've always loved Infinite possibly equally to the first, with both having strong effects and love in different ways. Both the base and dlc for infinite.

I've never really understood why some people don't like infinite as much, so please explain. But regardless, since Bioshock 2 wasn't even made by Irrational, as far as I'm concerned it's not even really part of the series but rather a spinoff like Life is Strange: Before the Storm or something. And don't get me wrong, it was okay and I enjoyed it but it wasn't even comparable to Bioshock or Bioshock Infinite.
Fear is the mindkiller.

For me the only no-show that made me sad was Splinter Cell, mainly because I was certain they were going to at least show a teaser. I was also expecting a Mortal Kombat too for example, but WB didn't announce anything.

Knowing Ubisoft, most of their games release two years after they're announced, so a new title is quite far away still.
