Dave Hinkle: Scribblenauts, for its sheer magic.
Kevin Kelly: Best ANYTHING I saw was the freaking Beatles: Rock Band cartoon introduction. It made me whiz my pants.
Griffin McElroy: Well, it was Star Wars: The Old Republic, but then I played Scribblenauts, and was born anew in its splendor.
Mike Schramm: Beating down demons with a police car in Darksiders.
Ludwig Kietzmann: I traveled through time and fought dinosaurs on a robot dinosaur. Scribblenauts wins.
Justin McElroy: "Project Natal" was great, but in terms of getting me excited, that Uncharted 2 trailer slayed me.
Xav de Matos: Splinter Cell: Conviction was the best thing since stealthily sliced bread.
Andrew Yoon: Scribblenauts really is amazing, but to break from the trend, I'll say Invizimals. It was only shown behind closed doors, but does things with the PSP I didn't think was possible.
The Mass Effect 2
presentation makes it look like the series is going to a whole other level.James Ransom-Wiley:
I gotta go with Milo,
the little-boy friend game. C'mon, that was the strangest
revelation at E3 -- I still don't get for sure what this Molyneux project intends to provoke. And that both thrills and terrifies
A close second: Wii Vitality Sensor (What the F,
I'm just going to quote from the demo and say: the only thing better than a lightsaber is two lightsabers
. Star Wars: The Old Republic
brings the lightsabers.Dustin Burg: Halo 3: ODST
because my jaw dropped in shock after seeing the game in action.J.C. Fletcher:
Everyone's saying Scribblenauts
, so I'm tempted to start being too cool for Scribblenauts
now. But seriously, I want to play that game's title screen for a year.Jem Alexander:
Didn't manage to experience Scribblenauts
myself, but it sounds incredible. Best thing I
saw was the Uncharted 2
trailer. In fact, I'm going to go watch it again ...Ben Gilbert: Sin & Punishment 2
. I knew nothing about it going in and couldn't believe how fun it was -- Treasure's still wonderful.Krystalle Voecks: Star Wars: The Old Republic
. If Gungans are in the game, I'll be playing whatever side gets to kill them. A lot.James Ransom-Wiley (part 2):
Scratch Vitality Sensor. The second best thing? Final Fantasy XIV
announced. That was jaw-dropping. Can it beat XIII
to market? It's possible. And that would be the best.
I'm going to have to go with Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
. Easily the most immersive game I've played in a long time. Can't wait to get a shot at the final release.Randy Nelson:
Two new Metal Gears.
A new and amazing looking Castlevania
. Project Natal. Uncharted 2
. God of War III
. All things I tried putting into Scribblenauts
, the most absolutely oh-my-gawd-I-want-now game I played at E3.
