4) Hey, I thought we were disagreeing here?
Nah, I mostly agree. I just wanted to clarify for the yung'uns. Back in our day, we pined for our copy of CGW and checked our mailboxes daily for a week until it came. And we read it cover to cover. Twice. That's the way it was, and we liked it!
I remember going nuts over E3 articles. Tiny postage stamped screens and 15 word blurbs, yet I'd identify what game was the next big thing to me due to it. Hell, any preview - I was 100% right on getting obsessed with Half Life based on 3 screens and two sentences, but 100% wrong thinking that, after Half Life, Prax War would be the next big thing. In that famous upcoming shooters preview, those were the two I loved. And based on essentially zero information.
Now? E3 seems annoying, not interesting.
Oh yeah.. that is very true.. nowadays E3 just seems like more noise on a noisy day at best... and at worst you can't even tell apart anymore what is or isn't E3 news, even during E3 ;p
And like any good gamer I also had a huge stack of gaming mags .. but I had to throw them away ;/////
