OK then... still uncharted :P

Mass Effect 2. The darker tone is great and is seems like they are going to fix the crappy stuff(side missions and technical issues). Second would be Conviction.

No Crystal Bearers :S

Personally, Metroid: Other M stole the show.  Huge surprise, awesome trailer.

And how New Super Mario Bros. Wii or Alan Wake didn't make the cut on your list baffles me.  Just saying.

Where's Castlevania? My pick was obvious, but it should be an option

(edit: GB needs to create the option for users to add choices to polls. every poll on this site seems to be missing an obvious answer.

While I'm Mr. Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell is the game I'm most hyped for.

How could you not put Alan Wake in that pole.

3 games caught my eye.

- The Last Guardian
- Uncharted 2
- God of War 3

I got a PS3 off my mate cause he swapped it for weed last year and I havn't ever used it apart from playing Socom and I'm a PC guy but funny enough the 3 games that looked great were on the PS3.

Never liked Halo
Never liked GT
Never liked Splinter Cell
Didn't like Ass Creed and Swtor is gonna be a dumbed down easy mmorpg thats all zoned and instanced up so ain't interested in that.

I have to go with Splinter Cell, i loved all the past game and this one seems to be a lot better

Splinter Cell. That game is pure stealthy goodness. 

#14 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8663 posts) -

Where's Just Cause 2?!?!?! Besides that, I may vote Splinter Cell: Conviction because it really looks like it is bringing back the franchise in full force.

Splinter Cell: Conviction because it was so damn suprising and so damn awesome

#16 Posted by Redbullet685 (6217 posts) -

the Beatles: Rock Band looks great

Yep, game of the show. Total surprise.
#18 Posted by get2sammyb (6686 posts) -

I vote Uncharted 2 but there were others in the running.

#19 Posted by gimmysumcowbel (430 posts) -

just cause 2 just because i expected next to nothing from it and the demo was 100% amazing

then i would give it to Splinter Cell

Splinter Cell: Conviction
They just totally blew me away, I was not expecting such greatness, to be honest I'd completely forgotten about the game.
The overhall they've gone through is great; it just looks like it'll be great :)
Big surprise for me, just aweomse and i love splinter cell and Sam Fisher!

Raven Squad imagine a FPS and a RTS at the same time!!!

Lack of NMH2 on that list dissapoints me. Assassin's Creed 2 it is then.

#23 Posted by VitaminWaterYum (484 posts) -

No Just Cause 2 sets it to Crackdown 2, but lack of Crackdown 2 gameplay at E3 leads sets it to ME2.

#24 Posted by Kohe321 (3568 posts) -

Either MW2, GoW3 or Uncharted for me.

#25 Posted by francesthemule (155 posts) -

Picked Mass Effect 2, b/c I was already super hyped for it and seeing it in action was sweet.
That being said, as other people said Splinter Cell: Conviction came so far out of left field
I can't help but be exited for it. Which is saying alot since I've never given a danm about the
series b4.

I'll just copypaste what I wrote in the Mario trailer thingy

Super Mario Galaxy was one of the best gaming experiences I've had over these 25 years and was a sublime stroke of genius on all levels. The nostalgia was there, the innovation was there and the love was there.
I still haven't enjoyed a game on my 360 or PS3 more than that even though I use them a whole lot more than my Wii."  "

Seriously, my balls are puckering on the very idea of more Mario Galaxy.

I'll be damned if Uncharetd 2 didn't look as one of the best cinematically driven games i have ever seen. Totally amazing.

It's easy to just choose Uncharted or God of War 3 but I think those are both just as we should of expected and will be two of the best games of this generation, but I choose something that surprised me.  The Beatles Rock Band, when I first heard of it I thought it would just be another Rock Band with Beatles music and wow, they really did some very awesome stuff.

It's hard for me to decide when I haven't played most of these.  Game of the show usually refers to a 'game', but that Gran Turismo 5 video was a nice surprise, and they seem to be doing interesting things.

#31 Posted by CoolDrMoney (2018 posts) -

Splinter Cell Conviction, New Super Bros Wii, DiRT 2, and Uncharted 2 all had excellent showings, and I'm stoked that Super Mario Galaxy 2 will happen, but in the end I must say that Shadow Complex is the game of the show for me. A action shooter metroidvania that I never saw before Monday, and I only have to wait a couple months for it.

Like Rainbow Six then? Hopefully just as good.

Mass Effect 2 had the most exciting E3 coverage and reveals.  It is tied, for me, with Modern Warfare 2 as the best looking game of E3.

Just Cause 2.
