Simply put. E3 is a mix and mash of everything good, and everything bad in the "world" of gaming. It's a place for gamers to feel excitement, hope, amazement, and happiness. And yet, simultaneously it creates an open table for discussion, argument, and anger.
Whatever E3 does, or does not do for you, one thing is clear. No other Expo, no other gathering of information, no other conference has drawn the attention of this corner of entertainment more than E3. The press coverage, the online reports, and the multitudes that travel to attend make this the most influential conference of the year. If anything, just stay tuned. Something big always happens.
