E3 2021 is over! Was it the best E3 ever? Nope. Was it fun? Yep. But, who won? Did anyone win? Let’s talk about who the “winner” of E3 is! E3 2021 was alright. It wasn’t the best E3 ever.

More Thoughts From Me E3 Special Edition: Xbox and Bethesda Bring It

It was just a CGI trailer with no gameplay but it looked amazing. I…

It will be an all virtual event though, so there will be no show floor for press, developers, and celebrities’ to attend. Most of the big publishers will be…
