The E3 2009 wiki last edited by Marino on 05/10/14 09:30PM View full history

Overview

After a subdued event during the previous two years, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) returned to its former large scale in 2009. This year's event had over 200 exhibitors present and around 40,000 attendees. Although the show was still not open to the public, it was more open then the previous two years, but less so then its peak attendance of over 60,000 in 2006.

Games of the Show

The games listed below not only include those playable on the show floor, but any game referenced at the show. This would include video presentations, announcements, advertisements, or any other official reference to the game from its developer, publisher, or platform. They are listed mainly according to the publisher of the game, with a few exceptions where the publisher did not attend the show. An example of this would be a hardware company such as Nintendo or nVidia showing a game not developed or published by them. In several situtations, games either changed their title or even their publisher before they were released. For historical accuracy in chronicling E3, such games will be listed with their original names and publishers, and linked to the corresponding page of the final game.

Game Critics Awards

The Game Critics Awards are decided by an independent group of North American media outlets. They have selected the most promising games of each Electronic Entertainment Expo since 1998, and have thus become recognized as the most respected "Best of" awards that come out of the annual show. Games qualify for nomination by having hands-on playable versions of the game at the show.

The 2009 awards were decided by the following 29 publications: 1UP, AOL GameDaily, Complex Magazine, Electric Playground, Game Informer, GameSpot, GameSpy, G4TV, GamePro, Game-Revolution, GamesRadar, GameTrailers, Gannett News Service, IGN, Joystiq, Kotaku, Los Angeles Times, Nintendo Power, Official Xbox Magazine, PC Gamer, Play Magazine, Official PlayStation Magazine, Spike TV, UGO, USA Today, Variety, The Wall Street Journal, Wired Magazine and Yahoo!
