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

3 of 11

Nintendo NX

While this wasn't unexpected – Nintendo did say we shouldn't have our hopes up for an E3 announcement – it does seem like a misstep to not start getting the hype train rolling for the NX.

Considering how the Wii U is essentially dead in the water and an absolute non-entity at this point in the console cycle, the NX needs an absolutely overpowering campaign of force to break out and overtake the PS4 and Xbox One, especially with both of those consoles about to get updated “.5” versions.

It's a shame the Wii U never got the traction (or the game catalog) it deserved, as that controller setup is actually really fun - especially with games like Rayman where the player on the GamePad controller has a very different experience.

When do you think Nintendo is finally going to get serious about the NX news, and do you think it will be able to compete?

    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.
