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

9 of 11

Shadow Of Mordor sequel

The game-changing mechanics on this Peter Jackson-inspired trek into the Lord Of The Rings lore had me absolutely hooked, sinking an absurd number of hours into completing every last dagger, sword, and bow legend while taking on more orcs than any army ever could.

There's an addicting quality here that keeps players coming back to nab those final diabolical achievements (and by the way, somehow after 100 hours I STILL haven't gotten the White Rider achievement).

Since then it's been a nail-biting wait to see if we'll get a sequel, either continuing the story or (even better) going in some new direction. Part 2 wouldn't have to feature the same characters or even take place in the same area – Middle Earth is huge, and even Mordor itself has lots of unexplored territory. While there's tons of love about the original, some upgrades wouldn't hurt either – particularly in the final boss battle department.

Unfortunately nothing concrete landed at E3 this year, so its likely going to be months at the least before an announcement comes, if indeed a sequel is even being developed at this point.

    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.
