I first had this thought last year I think, after watching the EA press conference, and this year simply confirmed it: I've come to hate E3. I hate the face that the biggest event of the year in video games is us sitting in front of a computer watching trailers and marketing for days. I am amazed at the amount of pre-release material for games that will come out in months or even years, only to be released, consumed and promptly forgotten - and also the amount of discourse on this internet for games that haven't come out yet, to the point people rate actual press conferences and marketing. Why are we doing this? What the fuck is wrong with us?
Obviously it's not all bad; I'm thankful for the after hours late shows on this website, but it's because this goes beyond the original mission of the expo.
Am I alone in thinking this? Am I crazy? Is this something I should just accept?
