    For me it's Twelve Minutes and Superliminal. I like puzzle games with interesting mechanics.

      OMG these look amazing. Any others on your second-tier? I bet you also enjoyed Stanley's Parable and Antichamber.

        I do! There are other games that I'm keeping an eye on, mainly for the art and story appeal, like CrysTale, El Hijo, Genesis Noir, Lost Words: Beyond the Page, Mosaic, Sea of Solitude, Spiritfarer, Unexplored 2 and Way to the Woods. But I'll be waiting for reviews on those before buying though. We're reaching a point where art games are becoming popular enough that it's common to find games with interesting visuals but underwhelming gameplay.

        Other than that there's also Carrion which just looks like tons of fun.

        Edit: fix my terrible english

      Oh wow Twelve Minutes looks really cool. I just started Edith Finch and it seems like Annapurna games has been making some serious strides in advancing gaming as a storytelling medium.

    I can't wait for Animal Crossing New Horizons to come out. A bit sad that it was delayed to 2020 but a bad game stays bad forever. The game already looks so much better compared to the last time I played it, on the Wii - that was 11 years ago, damn!

      This interview made me feel a little better about the delay.

      https://ca.ign.com/articles/2019/06/11/nintendo-comments-on-crunch-and-game-delays-a-e3-2019

      “The crunch point is an interesting one,” Nintendo of America’s president Doug Bowser told me at E3. “For us, one of our key tenets is that we bring smiles to people's faces, and we talk about that all the time. It's our vision. Or our mission, I should say. For us, that applies to our own employees. We need to make sure that our employees have good work-life balance.”

      “One of those examples is, we will not bring a game to market before it's ready. We just talked about one example [in Animal Crossing’s delay]. It's really important that we have that balance in our world. It's actually something we're proud of.”

      I mean, "corporate values" is still something I'm a lil skeptical of, and this reads a bit like PR-speak. Still, any nudge for this is a nice nudge.

    Haven't seen everything there is to see, but my list so far:

    Games I'd Like to Play

    • BOTW2 (... once I've played BOTW)
    • 12 Minutes
    • Fallen Order
    • Spiritfarer
    • Way to the Woods
    • The Outer Worlds
    • Superliminal

    Games I'll Probably Watch Other People Play

    • Doom Eternal
    • Watch Dogs 3
    • Deathloop
    • Ghostwriter Tokyo

    I'm not great at fast-paced games with combat, although I can enjoy them, so that's where the main distinction lies. (Star Wars in an exception. I'll find the easy setting and try my best to mow down Empire soldiers just so I can experience my cute little droid friend and get to wield a lightsaber.)

    With the newly-released Outer Wilds (which I still need to start) plus Deathloop and 12 Minutes, I'm really enjoying seeing time travel/time loop mechanics showing up in video games.

    Going by the other post with all the trailers:

    12 Minutes - I don't expect this to be a long game, but it looks like it'll be interesting. I am concerned that it might just be a number of endings and have no actual way to "win".
    Apex Legends Season 2 - Nothing wrong with a time wasting disconnect-from-the-world FPS where you just fill the need to shoot people that aren't dumb AI.
    Bleeding Edge - I'm kinda digging the idea of a FPS style fighting game instead of the usual 1v1 side scroller style
    Borderlands 3
    Cyberpunk 2077
    Daemon x Machina - Gives me a reason to steal my wife's Switch and since there aren't any new Armored Core games it'll have to take the place of my mecha fix.
    Deathloop - Interesting concept.
    Doom Eternal - Because of course
    Evil Genius - I like bad guy and dungeon builder games.
    Per Aspera
    Outer Worlds - Fallout, proper Fallout, in space. Probably my favorite on the list, but we knew this was coming before E3.
    Unexplored 2 - Love the art style, never heard of this so will have to go check out the first.
    Wasteland 3

    Edit: Thanks to @TheJorro for the indie list, further E3 trailer based opinions:

    Greedfall - Age of sail ecoconscience adventure game? Could be interesting.
    Rad - Mutation mechanic roguelike with cool art direction, nice.
    Carrion - Absolutely awesome idea in my mind.
    Fall Guys - Looks like a lot of fun so long as the levels aren't standard and are random, otherwise it'll be dominated by those that memorize them.

    Trials of Mana is pretty exciting too - Seiken Densetsu 3 was always kind of a fascinating game when I was younger, because it was the sequel to Secret of Mana but never came officially to North America (until very recently), and the fan-translation of it was always treated as a really big deal. It was totally unexpected to see a full remake of it, so I'm looking forward to that too.

I don't know what I think about the art style of the remake though. It doesn't have the je-ne-sais-quoi of the original; it feels almost too refined and it's so close to being right that it's almost like it's in the uncanny valley.

    Interestingly, nothing that actually was announced for this year. It was one of the most boring E3s in ages, felt like everyone was holding out for next gen consoles in 2020. Nintendo bets everything on Pokemon, probably rightly so, but that's not exactly my type of game. Basically, since the Switch was released, I just tune in hoping for a Pikmin 4 announcement and always find myself disappointed, lol.

    I was pleasantly surprised by Microsoft's outing this year -- there was the generic slog of AAA games that I'll never touch sans Cyberpunk, but it seems like they really went out of their way to also present several interesting "indie" titles. I'm really excited for 12 Minutes, Way of the Woods, and Psychonauts 2 in particular.

    I've been anti-Microsoft-gaming for so long (I was 16 when my 360 RRoD'd) but they're slowly getting me back on their side. I don't think I'll buy the Project Scarlett though.

Spiritfarer has an (in my opinion) amazing artstyle , delves into a topic that's really not visited often and has this somber, but also relaxed atmosphere.

    On the one hand, Microsoft, Nintendo and Ubisoft put on the best conferences I've seen from them in years. I'm really looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077, Breath of the Wild 2, Astral Chain and Watch Dogs 3. I may also give Phantasy Star Online 2 a shot when the English version comes out on PC next year.

    On the other hand, Sony, Google and Epic Games have been my three biggest disappointments, for various reasons, like not bothering to host a conference, unveiling a disappointing cloud gaming platforming, and making Shenmue III an Epic Games Store exclusive...

    Tbh I didnt find much there interesting, but maybe thats just me and my strong "if its hyped, assume the worst" intuitions. Then again I didnt really follow it much.

    Doom looks good but it'll have denuvo up the bum and the base game costs $100 AUD with the fancy version at $145. And thats too much.

    Cyperpunk is actually going to be DRM free on gog, which is a rarity for a triple a in 2019. I might just buy it purely because of that. No, of course I wont. Wait to see if its not shit and to not cost $90.

    As for anything else, if its on console I dont own one. If you dont care enough to make a PC edition, I dont care enough to go play the game. And I didnt pay enough attention to notice anyhing else. But maybe if anythings actually good I might hear about it.

    Maybe im just a cynic (I am) and jaded (I am), but im happy to just play games I already know and enjoy. The current state of the games industry, with grey wallpaper paste games being churned out more efficiently than ever before, infected with denuvo and then being priced at 2x their value doesn't interest me.

    E: and that commander keen thing was just distasteful.

      While I agree with your sentiments about hype and it's detrimental affects, I wouldn't put that down as a cause of the problems with the new Battlefronts.

      Frankly, the problem with those [and, frankly all new star wars games] is they are aimed to maximise profits from the core Star Wars market; ie: cashed up 40-somethings who want to chase nostalgia. This means they are only providing content which is directly related to the films [which, frankly, are the weakest part of the SW franchise, in my opinion], and are thus catering to those who generally aren't necessarily gamers.

      If you ask me, the shocking state of star wars [games] is due to the disney-ification of star wars, not the hype train.
