Missing in action: 9 games that were conspicuously absent from E3

1 of 11

The smoke has finally cleared: E3 is over, and all the biggest game development news has officially arrived that is going to arrive for the next few months.

There's no question we saw some amazing upcoming titles at this year's edition of the annual gaming mecca, from the first official look at the upcoming mythology-swapping God Of War to a new Zelda entry, a surprising change of pace with Resident Evil, and even some new footage on the delayed-but-not-forgotten Horizon: Zero Dawn.

For all that gaming goodness, we couldn't help but notice the conspicuous absence of some major series that didn't appear during the festivities.

Whether oversight, purposeful tactical choice, or just a timing issue as development drags on, these eight games (and one piece of hardware) all feel like they should have been prominently displayed at E3 2016.

    I was really hoping for Shadow of Mordor or a new Metroid. Too bad neither showed. Still, we got some good -looking games coming up.

    I'm expecting Shadow of Mordor to be shown at GamesCom.

    And why did anyone think a R* game would be at E3? They never are... RDR2 (or any other R* game) was expected not to be at E3.

    So, so looking forward to a new Shadow Of Mordor. I don't recall if Rockstar was presenting it or if it was Sony/Microsoft announcing it coming to the current gen consoles, but I know for fact GTA 5 has been covered at past E3s, so Red Dead certainly isn't outside the ream of possibilities.

    There was a GTA V trailer released around E3, but not at E3 it's self.
