    Ubisoft stole the show with Sony not far behind and Nintendo wasn't too shabby either, EA and Microsoft however left much to be desired.

    Easily Ubisoft. Had a perfect mixture of terrible and great. Everyone else has been kind of "zzz" to be honest.

    Without a doubt Ubi, watchdogs and shootmania look amazing. Plus rayman legends looks like more good platforming, even though they only showed wii u footage that looked way easier than rayman origins.

    I voted for Sony. Mainly because I think it's hilarious that they love the visage of Ellen Page so much.

    I think the 'big three' disappointed a little, but Ubisoft did a pretty good job. So Ubisoft.

    Ubisoft because even when it was terrible it was at least entertaining. Sony had the better demos (last of us, Beyond) but Ubisoft is a close second there (AC3, Watch Dogs).

    I went with Sony. Sure Ubisoft had some good stuff (I was most impressed with Watch Dogs) - but the hosts alone made me unable to give them the number 1 spot.

    The only thing that disappointed me with Sony was that the Vita was largely neglected. I was hoping E3 would bring some hot new vita title announcments.

    Sony barely beat out ubisoft for me but ubisoft was in everyone elses conference and was the best part of Nintendo. That Sony ending was great though, as was the intro. The only real bad part was the book stuff.

    For me the order was:

    Ubisoft- They amazed at their own conference and during other conferences as well. The AC3 demo during the Sony conference was brilliant, Zombie U during Nintendo and Splinter Cell during Microsoft's.Watch Dogs, Far cry 3 and AC3 looked great as well.

    Nintendo- LEGO City undercover did it for me.

    EA- Decent showing, no surprises really.

    Sony- Barely any vita games, What are you doing Sony? Beyond and Last of Us looked great.

    Microsoft-LocoCycle and Splinter Cell were a few of the redeeming games during this underwhelming conference.

    Ubisoft had the worst presenters by far, but the best game content, so they kinda win by default in my eyes.

    Sony's wasn't half bad. Microsoft and Nintendo were equally bad, sadly...

    Ubisoft/Nintendo - but I went with Nintendo because I am much more interested in Pikmin3 than I am of WatchDogs. I would put Sony third and Microsoft and EA as joint last.

    Ubisoft brought the games, but the hosts were annoying. Reggie did a good job being Reggie, but Nintendo didn't show me enough games I want.

    The big 3 were fucking awful. Funny how everyone (including me) thought Sony and Nintendo would clean up after watching MS, then Sony did nothing and Nintendo cured insomnia.

    Ubisoft easily takes it.

    Halo 4 and Watch Dogs are the only things that interested me so far.

    Ubi was the best. Nintendo was by far the worst, considering their the only ones with new hardware.

    Valve could just hold up a hl3 logo in the lobby or even a toilet and undermine anything thats been shown anywhere so far. Infact, if Gabe could have kept his beard secret until now, that would have 'won' E3.

    Sony, they seem to be the only company that managed to come across both professional and respectful and still showed a lot of games in a short space of time, also they had no forced jokes.

    Also, this might be the worst E3 I've ever watched.

    EA: D

    (I don't buy EA games anymore and this did nothing to sway me)

    Ubisoft: B+

    (Watch Dogs, motherfucker. They also had the best actual presentation. The dislike between the two hosts was oddly compelling)

    Konami: Missed it

    Microsoft: D+

    (Halo was cool and some of the other games looked ok, but it draaaaaaaaagggeeeddd forever and wasn't nearly focused enough on games)

    Sony: C-

    (A couple of cool trailers. Still not the least bit interested in owning a PS3)

    Nintendo: D-

    (Actively drove me towards not purchasing a Wii U)

    In that sense it was the worst, but in the sense of what they actually showed, it was hands down the best. Also, even if Aisha is obviously a highly paid endorser, she at least had more conviction than anyone from Microsoft, EA, or Konami. Maybe if she had said girl wood one more time, I'd have to agree with you.

    It's a tie with Ubisoft and Sony. E3 really just wasn't that great this year. As a completely neutral person/ non-fanboy of any game company, I really like Nintendo but I just wish they had more at their conference or at least something big..

    Sony. Professional, offered new quality services for their console, new bundles, announced a new game and had major gameplay for their big prestige game this fall. Treated the audience like valued consumers instead of like they were handing out pamphlets for live nude girls.

    Microsoft sold to you the way the television does, Sony sold to you the way the manager of the company does.

    EA. Sticking to stuff that works appeals to me; I really liked the new showing of Medal of Honor: Warfighter, and their presentation actually made me buy Battlefield Premium. Go figure.
