Back From E3

I made it out of E3 alive after only a single day this year, which is a feat. Better yet, both my feet and my sanity remain intact! I’ve posted my impressions of the event in the features section.

Here’s a brief followup to my pre-E3 rant. Nothing at E3 2005 did much to encourage me that the game industry isn’t totally screwing itself right now. There were a few really stand-out, innovative titles, but almost everything on display was pretty meh. It costs too much to make games, and the audience for games is still too small, so what we are going to see is fewer games taking fewer risks. If anything saves us, it will either be risk-taking publishers or audience-widening games like Nintendogs. Here’s hoping.
