your probably less than 9 years old than if you think this is the shittiest

I'm 35 and this E3 was the worst I've ever seen. By far.
Almost no hype at all for anything announced here.
If not for Nintendo (especifically the new Mario Party), nothing would interest me.

Yeah, I disagree hard. 2008's and 2015's made this look like the best ever. 2015 was laughably pathetic in what they announced.

Advance wars!!!!!!!!!!!

About a quarter of my posts on here are requesting a new advance wars. While this isn’t it I’m glad the series is still on Nintendo’s radar.

I’ve got my hopes up that within the next year or two we will have a new entry into the series.

could be since metroid and zelda have the same anniversary? (86). tho they didn't point that out for some reason...and they both can have celebrations...who knows
Yeah but I think we are used to Metroid not being celebrated lol, and Metroid Dread is coming this year so ... In a sense, it's already a celebration.
But there's just Skyward Sword HD and this G&W for Zelda ? Come on.
Tho I'm not sure if I prefer a joke like the Mario 3D Collection or nothing at all

2007/2008 were E3 in name only, I don't even count those.

E3 2015 had:
Horizon:Zero Dawn
Mario and Luigi: Paper JAM
FF7 Remake

Even impactful stuff I don't really care for, such as Nier: Automata and Shenmue 3.

2021 has... Metroid for people who like it, Elden Ring that is getting people's hype for some reason and the only game that interests me is Mario Party 10. Yay?

Yeehaw! Great show. I got Metroid, Mario party, monkey ball, wario ware, and BOTW 2, and SMTV (if I end up liking III). I feel like there was something for most people here.

So.. No Mario Kart 9 or new DK game then :P

There is no need of a MK9 right now. MK8 deluxe is very solid game the only complaint about the game is how they gave you all the cups instead of you unlocking them... but then again I only play Mario Kart online idk how people play that game offline.

A very solid direct, I almost cried when I saw Metroid.
Fusion, my favourie game in the series, was so long ago. New mech reminded me of SA-X for second. So freaking hyped.

I actually loved this direct. That new Metroid game, BOTW2, the new WarioWare and all the other stuff were solid hits. I expected maybe some more updates on Bayonetta 3 or maybe a new Kirby game but overall I wasn't disappointed. Some people demand too much, don't forget that covid happened.
