Since this year's E3 totally sucked, let's follow up on an E3 when it was awesome.
*time warp to 1998*
Hello everyone and welcome to the official E3 1998 thread where we discuss what will be revealed on E3 this year, and what won't.
GAMES TO WATCH
I heard Konami is being aggressive this year with two new and original game titles: Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill. This could be an indicator that Konami will buck the sequel trend and work on more cutting edge titles in the future. Any thoughts? Let's watch some trailers.

Some unknown Scandinavian company called Remedy are debuting their first game, Max Payne. How will this turn out I wonder?

Blizzard came in strong with some kind of action RPG game titled Diablo 2

This might not have made a big splash, but it looks very promising. It's by a company called Valve. The game is titled Half-Life.
...and of course the most anticipated game of 1998, DUKE NUKEM FOREVER!
the duke on E3!
Sega is keeping it close to the vest with their new console, the Dreamcast.
GT Interactive unveiled their Quake-killer, titled Unreal. Who will be victorious in this battle I wonder, Epic or Id? Only time will tell.
Epic are promising unrivaled 3D graphics, but no details on PC specs were released. Guess it's time to shell out on that new Voodoo II graphics card guys!
Nintendo showed up with a trailer for Nintendo fanboy favourite Zelda. This time with a new entry to the series titled Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. Will Zelda survive the transition from 2D to 3D?

Some other titles that weren't as big as the ones mentioned above but worth noting:
Final Fantasy VIII
Oddworld: Abe’s Exodus
Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
House of the Dead
Panzer Dragoon Saga
All in all, a pretty boring E3 this year guys, was expecting AT LEAST 50 new original titles like we used to expect in the early 90's. Let's hope things improve ten years from now!
