So after the PS4 event, I went around looking at all of the post conference coverage and was shocked to find that Giant Bomb was one of the most up beat publications about it. Seems like most of our community - as is frequently the case - generally agree with the GB crew as to how great the thing was, and how much it exceeded what we expected from that event.
But, it almost seems like we were in the minority. I think perhaps the most shocking to me was the editorial team at Polygon, whom I generally like, having a 2 hour or so post-show special where they generally were down upon the whole conference for things such as not seeing the box, not announcing enough games, the conference being too long, etc.
After being worn away by all of that for so long, I started to think maybe I was crazy for loving the event - and maybe us here at GB were being a bit too optimisitic, UNTIL:
I'd just like to thank y'all for being awesome - and Justin McElroy for reminding me how awesome video games, and the people who love them, are.
