  1. I will admit that I'm pretty nostalgic for the old pre-Direct E3 days when E3 itself was bigger, social media wasn't as big so people still crowded forums, neogaf gifs were plentiful, we had a whole E3 subforum here, companies kept more stuff underwraps to reveal at the show itself, etc. E3 used to feel like the superbowl for gaming nerds but now its like a shadow of what it once was.

      Like shit, remember those day long G4 live coverages? I use to plan out the week around just sitting on the couch and watching those.

      I get why this change is happening but man... I am going to miss looking forward to June every year.

      Those were wild days. I'll never forget the E3 where the 3DS was first announced along with KI: Uprising, Kirby's epic yarn, and DKR. That was my personal fav.

      Definitely one of Nintendo's best E3's honestly.

      It's strange thinking back to a time where I wasn't crazy about Kid Icarus and just saw Uprising as "oh hey, that looks neat." lol

      Hell, even going back to 2009 I remember popping off when they showed of Mario Galaxy 2.

      For me it wasn't even KI itself that got me excited at first, because I was like "oh cool they brought that series back, graphics are kinda low quality though, even for a Wii game." nah what did it for me was when they were like "btw this game is a 3DS game and that's 3DS graphics." after that I was like "YOOOOOO"

      @Strickerx5 I think Mario Galaxy 2 was revealed at e3 2010 (same year as kid icarus/DKCR/kirby/etc.)

      2009 had new super mario bros. wii though. i remember watching that live on g4, and i was honestly blown away by it being a 4P multiplayer experience. excluding LBP --which was a very different kettle of fish of platformer on top of being a UGC-- major co-op platformers were a non-entity at that point in time.

      @MiloNah, it was 2009. I distinctly remember being verily underwhelmed by New Super Mario Bros. (even back then) and just when I was losing interest they came up and said something along the lines of "if that's all the mario news you think we have today, might want to think again" and proceeded to show the trailer.

      Edit: Oh shit,even found the announcement vid. Was almost right with that quote too.
