What was your favorite E3 (2018) Game Announcement?
E3 has come and gone once again, and if you’re like me, you are probably more excited by some announcements than others. I’m personally the type that is excited for the release announcement of new games. Not to say that content releases aren’t exciting, but they don’t carry the fanfare of a full game release for me. That being said, these are my top game announcements I can’t wait to dive into:
The Division 2
I can’t say this is a “long awaited” sequel, but it is definitely welcome. The Division was a great game, with well coordinated game play for multiplayer co-op. Add in the tons of additional content that has continued to expand the play options and I can’t help but be ecstatic for this next game. The first game in this series did a great job of hooking you into all the game had to offer with the way it handled character growth after hitting max level. Yes, it did have problems with the Dark zone in the beginning, and hackers will unfortunately be a problem in almost every new PC game, but hopefully those are lessons learned that won’t be repeated mistakes in the 2nd game.
We wouldn’t be able to credit this as any form of appropriate coverage without
Fallout 76. This is probably the most hyped title announcement from E3. Everybody knows this game is on its way, and most of us are excited to experience the first multiplayer rendition of the Fallout series as soon as possible. Being the first of its kind in this series, the multiplayer rendition has quite the standard to reach. Players will be very skeptical over any differences in play compared to the single player games such as Fallout 3 &4. Hopefully this game exceeds those high expectations and causes me to spend hundreds of hours terrorizing, I mean exploring, the wasteland with my friends.
Now, if you haven’t figured out by now that these picks are completely based on my personal tastes, this should finalize that realization for you. I am far to excited to play this game. While I haven’t had the best experience playing some of the many many anime games available for PC, I have high hopes for Jump Force. If they manage to mess up a game that has so many of my favorite characters I don’t know how I will ever forgive Bandai Namco. Just the picture above had me antsy. And let’s be honest, we all know Luffy is going to beat the absolute shit out of every other character, and that is worth playing.
Dying Light 2
The first Dying Light was the first great game I played on my PS4 when I had one. It was a game I hadn’t really heard of, but that my friends talked me into getting. I was thoroughly pleased with the co-op gameplay and the smooth parkour physics of the game. The game remained challenging and the storyline was a very nice hook. This is a game that has had me waiting rather impatiently for the sequel. Throwing in the dynamic world settings announced piques my interest into how the new gameplay will evolve the story line experience.

What I thought
Sparkles Fantastic on my favorite game announcements from E3 2018. I know these aren’t the “best” announcements from E3 2018, but these are my personal favorites. I didn’t consider any of the console specific games in my top picks list because I’m strictly a PC gamer at the moment.
