The E3 2014 event might not have been as jam packed with announcements as the previous year, when Sony and Microsoft both announced several key games and features for the next generation console.
This year did bring an awful lot of the same stuff we had seen last year, but with a new release date in 2015, instead of 2014. It makes us wonder if all of the good content would always have been delayed another year, but Microsoft and Sony needed good announcements in 2013 to kick off the new consoles.
Either way, GameSpot has compiled a list of People’s Choice Awards for best games on the floor at E3. The voting only included games available to be played at E3, meaning games like Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda and Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy The Division could not be voted on.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt took first place with 23 percent of the vote, followed by Dragon Age: Inquisition in second place and Super Smash Bros in third. For the PlayStation Vita, Freedom Wars won first place with a considerable amount of the vote.
It is interesting to see The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt pull ahead by a decent majority of votes, showing gamers are excited for the new expansion in the Witcher universe, more than the Dragon Age successor.
Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has had a lot of good press surrounding it since release, along with CD Projekt Red confirming the game will have no DRM and will be available on all platforms, something fans seem to enjoy hearing.
We really want to see how the new consoles can showcase the next generation of games, right now Watch Dogs and Titanfall have failed to add the wow-factor, coming as good triple-A titles, but nothing the older consoles couldn’t achieve.
Destiny is a title that could make the leap, with the shared-world and advanced MMO style story. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt appears to be more of a large expansion into the universe with impressive new graphics, but no new mechanical upgrade to show off the next-gen power.
