3) Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (PS4)
Okay, so, the debut trailer for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was just a long shot of Nathan Drake’s rugged mug, but it was still impressive. If Uncharted 4’s characters look even half as detailed in the final game, it’s going to be truly groundbreaking. Aside from “Look at Nathan Drake’s face!” there wasn’t much to gleam from the trailer, but still, it’s a new Uncharted, obviously it has to place highly on this list.
2) The Legend of Zelda (Wii U)
Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda trailer was even briefer than Sony’s Uncharted 4 thing, but it delivered more information. What was with the futuristic, laser shooting enemy? And why does “Link” so different? How will the Zelda formula adapt to the game’s new Skyrim-esque world? So many questions! If Nintendo had shown just a little bit more, I probably would have shot this right to #1, but as it is, there’s one E3 game I find even more intriguing…
1) Bloodborne (PS4)
Much of Bloodborne, the new game from Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki, is still being kept under wraps, but what little we know sounds hugely promising. Basically the game is a mash-up between Dark Souls and Resident Evil. The game is a hard-as-nails, action RPG like Dark Souls, but instead of plunging into monster-filled dungeons, you’re hacking your way through a city whose inhabitants have been infected with a plague that’s turns people into deranged, 28 Days Later-style zombies. This thing could not be more in my wheelhouse.
What about you folks? What games announced at this year’s E3 are you most excited for?
