Gaming Age have posted their own wrap up of E3, i'd have to agree that Sony made a big impression this year, plenty of tasty titles heading to the PS2 and that minor announcement of a handheld makes them the winner this year IMHO. "First category is The best showing/lineup from a publisher. And the winner is, Konami, hands down. With the showing of MGS3: Snake Eater, MGS: The Twin Snakes, a new DDR, Gradius, the rebirth of the TMNT franchise, and a new 3D Castlevania, there was really no question about which company created the most buzz around the show. My second place award goes to LucasArts not only because of their annual showing of their hundreds of Star Wars that are currently in production, but also because of their showing of new content for the upcoming year. Next category is Best Lineup for a home console system. And the winner of that is, drum roll please, the PlayStation 2. With a number of hot RPGs coming from Square-Enix, a number of the games mentioned above coming from Konami, and their own impressive lineup, including: Gran Turmiso 4, Jak II, and Ratchet and Clank II. Pretty much makes for another exciting year for the PS2. And second place goes to Nintendo. With Super Mario 3 coming to the GBA, Mario Kart coming to the Gamecube, and Square-Enix gracing both of Nintendo’s consoles soon, gives Nintendo the chance to have a very promising year. Next on my list is Best “unhyped” game of the show. And this honor belongs to Atlus’ turn-based tactical RPG named Disgaea: The Hour of Darkness. With fantastic graphics, stylish art and solid gameplay, this is a title that is most defiantly worth checking out once it hits the shelves later this year. Running up belongs to Konami’s own Gradius V; all that needs to be said about this title is wow! The next category is the infamous What happened to? This dubious award goes to X-Box’s RPG masterpiece (in the making, or so I’m told) Fable. A very short video clip is the closest we ever got to seeing or hearing about this MIA title. Hyped to be the X-Box’s first epic RPG, and not even a whiff of it at the X-Box booth. The runner up in this category goes to the Zelda titles for the GBA that were supposed here at the Capcom and Nintendo booth.And last but definitely not least, The Game of the Show. This honor was stolen by none other than Square-Enix’s very own, Final Fantasy XI. How they built a persistent online world, while capturing the essence and feeling of the Final Fantasy universe, I will never know. The runner up in this category resulted in a tie between Konami’s Castlevania for PlayStation 2, and Microsoft’s Rise of the Nations for the PC, created by civilization II’s co-creator Brian Reynolds. Honestly, I had a blast while I was here in LA, and before I sign off for good from the convention center, I would like to leave you with some of the fantastic sights that I took in, while I was here. Make sure you look at Gaming Age legend, Patrick Klepek, playing the “Eye Toy” at the Sony Booth. Moreover, if you were wondering how the Godfather of gaming is looking now and days, don’t miss the picture of Miyamoto and I, as I had a chance to chat with him for a few precious seconds And also I would like to take this time to thank everyone for reading and for all of your kind responses and emails. This is Kevin M. Jones signing off for the final time from the end of this year’s E3 in Los Angles, California."
