Poll: What aspect of E3 do you enjoy the most? (108 votes)

Press Conferences. 64%
Show Floor Coverage. 4%
Ancillary Opinion Pieces (Pocasts & Such). 30%
Other. 1%
I do not enjoy E3. 2%

For me, E3 could just be press conferences all week long. Platform holders and publishers putting up a show. I'll never understand why only EA and Ubisoft do it. Once a year, gaming is a live event! Why don't all publishers major and minor participate?

What's your favorite aspect of E3?

Come for the Press Conferences; stay for the live E3 Giant Bombcasts.

The game announcements, those that you dont expect to be there, the ones were kept a secret and didnt get leaked. Also the E3 Live shows + Jeff's Pre-E3 LA drive

I think the conferences are probably the most exciting part, but GB's after hours shows are easily the best thing about E3. ALso the drive to E3 broadcast was fun.

I watch a bunch the stage demos Gamespot did as well.

:( This topic makes me realise how little I actually do enjoy E3. Lots of announcements that have already been announced; lack of sleep; a lot of people getting angry over things; and even though the GB coverage was enjoyable, I still would have preferred a regular GB schedule.

That's not to say that there weren't any nice surprises (there definitely were), the problem is that E3 is mainly just fluff.

I enjoy the press conferences but I'm more excited about seeing the 5 - 10 minute game demos on IGN, Rev3 games, etc.

Press conferences. I basically just want to hear about game announcements, and then see some actual gameplay demos. I like the podcasts and stuff, but I like the normal podcasts away from E3 even more.

Press events. The actual convention might as well not even occur, from my perspective, since I get all I want out of the Monday events

Those press conferences are like Christmas and my birthday rolled into one.

It's all about the gameplay demo footage for me. Does that count as show floor footage?
