    I avoid all preview hype in any way shape or form whatsoever. Even if it is gameplay footage. At best it can only indicate if I will NOT want the game. It cannot tell me if I will want it, because until release everything is subject to change and the game company are anyway only showing you the interesting bit, most probably carefully crafted by marketing. Case in point , many preview of watchdog made it seem far more than it was, visually and for the gameplay.

    Nowadays I only check what sort of game genre might interrest me, avoid all preview then check 3 source for review : meta critic (which has its purpose no matter what people think) steam reviews, and some random set of publication review. Usually all put together they give a good gauge.

    Preview and events on the other hand are at best misleading.

    Not really, no.

    The BF TIE Fighter (vs, you know, the bad guys :P) looked unconscionably pretty.

    Also KOTOR III (I jest) looks intriguing.

    E3 is supposed to be a trade show. They keep talking to the audience as if they were the players, who keep applauding. Very odd.
