>>297742016>Why is E3 so important and when is it?
What the hell?
It's a big gaming event next week. Usually the first few days have a bunch of big publishers and stuff holding conferences where they announce new games and features and hardware etc etc. Then the rest of E3 is mostly demos and shit; not as exciting for those at home, although some stuff is livestreamed so it can be nice to see more footage of a game you're interested in.
The publishers having conferences this year are>Bethesda>Microsoft>EA>Ubisoft>Sony>Nintendo>Square Enix>PC Gaming/AMD
Often there's a lot of shit announced but even so, E3 is the place where big announcements happen. Some of the major games that people may hype up for the next few years are likely to be announced.
E3 is to gaming as the Superbowl is to American Football, as Wrestlemania is to Wrestling, as Wimbledon is to Tennis etc
