I had been intending to do a write-up for each of the E3 conferences this year. However, in the end, I didn’t feel that there was enough content to do a write-up for each conference individually and also it was a lot of work for each post! This year’s E3 was incredibly disappointing and a lot of the games that were featured were ones that had already been premiered last year or even the year before. Whilst it was good to get updates on the games in development and some 2019/2020 release dates for those games, it meant that there was little to get excited about in terms of new games.
This year I watched the presentations/live-streams for EA Play, Microsoft, Bethesda, Ubisoft, the PC Gaming Show, and Nintendo. I did a presentation write-up for EA Play and Microsoft, but the other presentations (with the exception of Nintendo) didn’t leave me with much to talk about. So, instead, I’ll be sharing with you all my game highlights of E3 2019 in this post featuring the games that I’m most looking forward to playing in 2019/2020.

Yesterday I shared my highlights of the EA Play live-stream from E3 2019. Today I’m catching up on yesterday’s presentations; Microsoft and Bethesda. Usually, I give no cares about the Microsoft presentation. I don’t own an Xbox and usually find the Microsoft presentations hilariously over the top with their obsessive focus on cars, sports and first-person shooters. However, as Playstation isn’t in attendance this year I thought I’d give the Microsoft presentation another go and actually kind of enjoyed it? Don’t get me wrong, there was still A LOT of shooting games (mostly of the undead variety) but there was definitely a lot less reliance on pew-pew vroom-vroom games (as I like to call them).
As always, Microsoft likes to bring a lot to the table and, as someone who doesn’t have an Xbox, not all of it was very relevant and/or exciting for me. They announced a lot of stuff that would probably be exciting for Xbox players (Project Scarlett announcements, Xbox Elite Wireless Controller with more customizable features, and Xbox Game Pass news) that I won’t go into, I’ll just give you a quick snap shot into some of the games that piqued my interest.
