The Top Ten

1 Super Mario Odyssey

Mario can now possess anything. That is awesome. I may have to get a Switch soon before October. - cjWriter1997

Catchiest song in the world

Yes! another Super Mari game, Yes! another reason to buy a Nintendo Switch, Yes! it looks just as fun as all the previous games. Yes! a dinosuar in the trailer to think of something else instead is Odyseey. - htoutlaws2012

2 Beyond Good and Evil 2 Beyond Good and Evil 2

How many of you expected Beyond good and Evil 2 to appear at all in Ubisoft's conference? I'm assuming that number was a minimal of 10%, if you actually saw it coming than I applaud you, but for the rest of the 90% got a real big surprise shocker. Then you were treated to possibly the best moment of the entire E3 is by seeing this game, and not knowing that it is indeed the long awaited sequel to another underrated classic. - htoutlaws2012

3 Star Wars Battlefront II (2017) Star Wars Battlefront II (2017)

Its no lie I pretty said I had very high expectations for the second, and man does it look good or what. It plays more like a battlefield game which is not bad by any means. Th difference between the two will be vast, and yet greater than we could imagine. Playing as Darth Maul looks like a blast as they showed. 3 different eras in one game no matter what I'm getting this game because I'm a die hard Star Wars fan. - htoutlaws2012

This game might be epic! - Cwf1997

4 Spider-Man (PS4) Spider-Man (PS4)

It's like Arkham with the Spiderman twist. It looks really solid! I just hope Insomniac can pull off a good and interesting story to coincide with it as well. - cjWriter1997

The game everyone went nuts, and praise just got a lot more interesting, web to web with very unique style combination of story, while using gameplay that works great, and very well gets the W for me sony. - htoutlaws2012

5 Cuphead Cuphead

My first impression when I saw this was like huh when it was on the games we look forward to, and despite it showing a good few seconds was just enough for me to give it a liking, and being kinda invested in its cartoon gameplay like style that definitely stands out. - htoutlaws2012

6 Far Cry 5

With a more southern setting approach it at least expands from the previous game. - htoutlaws2012

7 Metro: Exodus Metro: Exodus

Metro for the most part felt very underrated as a series, for Microsoft to open, and Start with a Metro game was very interesting. It looks fun, and could very well be a not only solid, but has a great chance of being the best in it series which might be a bit of a tough task. - htoutlaws2012

8 God of War (2018) God of War (2018)

Kratos is back, and better than ever? Well the story seems a bit far from anything we have seen before which is good, this game introduces his son which I find incredibly different already. For those fans mythology then you'll most likely love this game, or play the previous before jumping into this one. - htoutlaws2012

The scene where Kratos and his son encounter the huge serpent was just awesome. I could feel my speakers rumble when the serpent spoke.
I'm still super excited for this. - cjWriter1997

9 Assassin's Creed Origins

I thought it was fine for what it did, but hey the fanbase likes it enough I had no problem with it appearing twice. - htoutlaws2012

By far the best - 2storm

10 Crackdown 3

Making its first appearance two years ago which was exciting to say the least. No appearance last year who knows why, and then it returns one last time with great approval of having Terry Crews is somewhat fitting if there ever would be a crackdown movie he would be the dude in the cover lol. The game looks insanely fun, and has great potential to surpass the 2nd game. - htoutlaws2012

The Contenders

11 Days Gone

The new gameplay demo gets me really excited and it's nice to see some good dialogue and animation from the characters. It reminds me a bit of Uncharted in a way. I'll be picking this up day one for sure. - cjWriter1997

This takes stealth combined with horror and it is awesomely executed. I liked it when it first appeared, the second time around just as satisfying. - htoutlaws2012

12 Dragon Ball Fighter Z

Anyone that's a fan of the franchise, and or this anime series may want to play this game, and have it in their collection of other anime fighting games. - htoutlaws2012

Xenoverse is cool and all but it would be nice to have a normal 2D fighter like the Budokai games, and it looks like this will be just that. - cjWriter1997

13 Metroid Prime 4

Yeah that's right you heard me right, there is a 4th game going to be on the switch. Although we know little of it it does get us excited for this epic series. - htoutlaws2012

All we needed was that confirmation and we were set. Good job Nintendo! - cjWriter1997


I got so excited when I saw the "4" - MaxPap

14 The Evil Within 2

A lot of people loved the first game, let's see what the 2nd game has in store. - htoutlaws2012

15 Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Hey if Bethesda could treat games like Prey, Doom, & Quake with great games. Then Wolfenstein is in that category. While the new order was very alright, I think based on what I have seen the second one it seems to possibly be better. - htoutlaws2012

16 Monster Hunter: World

Turok meets Jurassic world, lol I mean that's I can see while watching this. - htoutlaws2012

17 South Park: The Fractured but Whole

Literally the South Park game people have anticipated for 7 years now as the sequel to the awesome Stick of Truth may just be as good. - htoutlaws2012

18 Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

Takes action RPG's into a unique way, while the first was very okay. I do see why people like these type of games. - htoutlaws2012

19 Metroid: Samus Returns

Looking forward to hearing Lower Brinstar again - xandermartin98

20 A Way Out A Way Out

This game shows off its kind of 2 player aspect with you, and your in this case (cell mate). It was a game I had no idea what it was, but hey you made an impression to me despite the majority of E3 games being of Sports. - htoutlaws2012

21 Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Looks good, a solid game for the series perhaps. - htoutlaws2012

22 Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Some people may hate this idea, and I totally understand, but I only really liked the trailer because it had humor, but also rock music well done Ubisoft you totally shocked me this year. - htoutlaws2012

23 Life is Strange: Before the Storm

Yes that's right, for those who loved Life is Strange will probably like this just as equally. - htoutlaws2012

24 Shadow of the Colossus Remake

I gotta say of all remakes I've seen the past year this one looks the best, stunning visuals, and a classic from the PS2 era. - htoutlaws2012

25 Kirby (2018)

Yeah I know another Kirby game, but we have no idea what this one is suppose to be, or what it is really from the little we seen. - htoutlaws2012

26 Anthem Anthem

Okay think Halo meets Titanfall to a certain extent with a lot of flying involved, and tiny bit of shooting, and that's your game. I mean I thought it was good enough because of how great it shows off the 4K of the XBX. - htoutlaws2012

27 Black Desert

I'm not the biggest fan of MMO's, but this one might be good for the XBX. - htoutlaws2012

28 Sonic Forces

Naw I did not see it in any of the conferences so I'm not sure about that one. - htoutlaws2012

29 Deep Rock Galactic

First thought is that I thought it was going to be Alpha Genesis. Wow was I wrong on that one. Nevertheless a game with a lot of polygons in the background in a way stands out hopefully it doesn't turn into crap. I've played games that have polygons, and they tend to suck. - htoutlaws2012

30 Quake Champions Quake Champions

Yes! a release date, Yes! Quake for the PC gamers, Yes! It looks amazing. - htoutlaws2012

31 Code Vein

Okay think anime mix it with what feels like Dark Souls, and that's your game, cool concept I bet the anime fans wanna try this. - htoutlaws2012

32 Serious Sam's Bogus Detour

For those who either saw the privatized conference from the publishers of the games then you are a gaming god who stays passed 2 a.m, but maybe you caught it at some point on the PC show, and seen a bit of it. It looks just as fun as the early games with its arcade shooting like style. - htoutlaws2012

33 Detroit: Become Human

Last year I felt meh on this game, this year changed my entire opinion. A futuristic setting in Detroit, and these renegade androids running rampant is a pretty cool concept I can't lie to that. - htoutlaws2012

34 Ori and the Blind Forest

Well that's my bad I meant Will of the Wisps, just seeing made me go at least that got the proper hype considering how great the first one was. - htoutlaws2012

35 Skull & Bones

Yes I had pick between two pirate games I slightly prefer this one. I mean your fighting ships in this one compared to just running with a gun in Sea of Thieves, and as you saw with that game weird buggy framerate, and or slow reloading. Not the type of game I like, where this it actually would not be that annoying. - htoutlaws2012

36 PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

You know what this reminds me of, some steam game (I can't seem to remember its name) with the same concept eliminate everyone until you're the last one standing. I mean if I wanted to play something like this I'd make it PC only personally. - htoutlaws2012

37 Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Okay its not a sequel, but its more of a spinoff kind of game, but doesn't look that bad as you would think. - htoutlaws2012

38 Tacoma

It takes place in a futuristic setting (like a lot of games shown this year). It feels more like a gravity type game which I hate to use, but that's the common gist I seem to get right here. - htoutlaws2012

39 Destiny 2

Looks intense, but learning from the first game I'm not gong to rush my way to buy this game like I did 3 years ago. - htoutlaws2012

40 The Crew 2

Racing games lately have been very alright, but not as predictable as sport games. Seeing this game I felt well I have not played the first game, but the 2nd one might be just as fun. - htoutlaws2012

41 Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

Its been 5 years since the last Marvel vs. Capcom, and well it looked alright to me. Not a big standout, but hey for those who love fighting games I say here you go. - htoutlaws2012

42 Ruiner

This looks very sickish cool, like the whole setting seems great, top it off with the cool character design I think people show look at the trailer seriously it looks epic. - htoutlaws2012

43 Steep

I think I meant the expansion for this game, but yeah it looks fun for a boarding game. - htoutlaws2012

44 Absolver

This game looks great, your fighting in a sorts 3rd person type of way, and the characters stand out who cool looking they are in the trailer. - htoutlaws2012

45 The Swords of Ditto

It resembles some show from Cartoon Network, which fits with its style of gameplay. - htoutlaws2012

46 Yoshi
