E3 is the chance for every major video game developer to showcase their upcoming projects to the world. If a game excites and surprises attendees, then it’s well on its way to becoming a success once it’s released. While there were dozens of great games on the E3 floor this year, these were the 10 most impressive.
Nearly everyone in attendance can agree that “Evolve” was the most visually impressive game at E3. “Evolve” is a co-operative first-person shooter from the creators of the “Left 4 Dead” series. The game pits four human players against a giant monster controlled by another player, and it will be released on the PS4 and Xbox One this October.
“Destiny” has been exciting fans since its reveal at E3 last year. “Destiny” is Bungie’s follow up to the “Halo” series, and it is already the most expensive video game ever made. The mixture of a single-player campaign and a massive multiplayer online world make this one of the most unique games on the E3 floor.
Batman: Arkham Knight
Rocksteady knows how to create amazing Batman games, and “Batman: Arkham Knight” looks like it will be the best in the series. The ability to drive the Batmobile should excite any fan.
This Xbox One exclusive looks like a strange mixture of “Dead Rising,” “Ratchet & Clank,” and “Tony Hawk Pro Skater,” but it was easily one of the most fun games found at the convention. Insomniac Games is known for absurd and over-the-top games, and “Sunset Overdrive” looks no different.
Ori and the Blind Forest
This game came out of nowhere at E3 this year, and it was easily one of the most stylish games on the floor. This Xbox One downloadable exclusive is a challenging platformer in a vibrant and beautiful world.
The Witcher 3
“The Witcher 3” was the best role-playing game at E3 this year. “The Witcher 2” was one of the most underrated games of the last few years, so hopefully the amazing show at E3 will allow this game to get more attention.
Rainbow Six: Siege
Anyone that loves online multiplayer shooting games, is going to have to get their hands on “Rainbow Six: Siege.” The game features five-on-five matches that force the players to work together in order to succeed. The tension, fun and beautiful graphics delivered by “Rainbow Six: Siege” will be hard to top for any other game in the genre.
“Bloodborne” is the spiritual successor to “Demon Souls,” but set in a completely different world. While you may have a gun and in an old gothic city, the trademark difficulty is still in place.
“Mario Maker” has answers the dreams of millions of fans by allowing them to create and play their own levels in a “Mario” game. The game will also let the player switch between 8-bit and HD graphics.
Forza Horizon 2
“Forza Horizon 2” continues the series’ dominance as the best racing game on any console. In addition to the beautiful graphics, “Forza Horizon 2” features an enhanced A.I. system that learns your behavior for more competitive races.
