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

8 of 11

Metroid

So we did get a Zelda reveal, and that's nothing to sneeze at with how massively behind Nintendo has been to everyone else lately, but a serious Metroid definitely would have done wonders for a flagging fan base.

Other than the impending Federation Force, a title that completely changes the gameplay and even had fans launching a petition for cancellation, there hasn't been a major Metroid entry in years, with the Wii U getting mostly skipped over. Hopefully a new and worthy successor will launch with the NX?

    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.
