Data Dump: Who Won E3 2018?

It's always been a dumb question. But, what if we applied a little math and science to it anyway? If you were in chat during any of the press conferences media briefings showcases, then you may have seen a poll at the end asking you to rate the show from 1-10. Well, I took all that data and used it to determine who the Giant Bomb Community thinks "won E3 2018."

Check a look!

Electronic Arts

E3 2018 got off to a mostly disappointing start.

Prior to the first GB @ Nite show on Tuesday, I asked everyone who they thought won E3. This was the result:

How does that single vote stand up to all the data collected immediately after the conference?

Aside from Ubisoft and Bethesda being flipped (very narrowly), the data and the vote actually match.

Ultimately, it's clear that Microsoft won E3 2018 according to the Giant Bomb Community.
