E3 2018 last edited by Marino on 06/16/18 01:58PM View full history


For the second year in a row, the ESA opened E3 registration to the public. Starting on February 12, 2018, anyone could register for a "Gamer Pass" at a price of $249 USD. After a mixed reaction to allowing the public into the expo in 2017, changes were made to the schedule for 2018. On the first two days of E3, industry professionals are given three hours on the floor before the public is allowed inside.

Game Critic Awards

No Caption Provided

The Game Critics Awards are decided by an independent group of worldwide 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.
