    I thought it would be fun to have a thread with everyone just sharing what your game of the show was for E3 and why ...

    I'll kick it off with Splatoon - this is what I've wanted from Nintendo for a long time - Mario Paintball ... but this was approached in a much cooler and more appealing and fun way than I could have even conceived. The goal cover the map with your own paint - simple enough, but:

    The depth of gameplay I'm seeing already in this one mode has me so excited - newbies can defend homebase by painting that up - more advanced players can venture out and shoot down enemies - hiding in your paint, jumping to your teammates - this is shaping up to be an amazing shooter by Nintendo that has more than just how many kills I have in it.

    I'm really curious to see if there is a single player campaign or if this will be more of a TitanFall online only shooter - anyways I'm excited being a 2015 game has me thinking this is just the tip of the iceberg!

    So what is your game of E3 2014?

    The Uncharted 4 teaser was the only thing that sparked genuine excitement in me!

    Little Big Planet 3
    Zelda
    Kirby Canvas Curse sequel - the original DS game was brilliant!
    Smash Bros 4
    No Man's Sky

    I'm cautious about most of those though. LBP3 looks like the first game but new, where LBP2 and Vita had their own distinct art styles. I really hope the character switching mechanic works well, I'm getting Lost Vikings vibes from it and I don't think that would work well for a faster platform game like LBP.

    Smash Bros, will be ace but I don't want to see a reliance on the figures.

    No Man's Sky looks great but I need to see some gameplay. I need to see what goals and activities the game has.

    No mans sky for sure. If it can do what they say it can do, and it seems from the people that played the demo they brought, it can.

    I think the game is going to be amazing, especially when we start to see the planets that are not like earth, and there are tons.

    The game looks beautiful.

    No game really made an impact this year, but that trailer for the new Insomniac game was really clever. I like many others must have thought "oh great, another US marine shooting whatever game" and then suddenly "Whoa awesome" :D

    Not that I would buy that game in any case. Just the trailer was fun.

    Another good trailer was for the new Tomb Raider, though it could have gone with less killing.
