I’m interested in most games, but not excited for many of them.

The majority I’d be fine never playing.

Nintendo doesn't really like showing off stuff that we won't get for a long time anymore. That's why so much of it was dedicated to Smash
I enjoy when companies show off long off projects because it gives you something to look forward in the long run and get hyped whenever the developer shows off more of their progress as it gets closer to the game coming out. I find that conferences that show off a good mix of games that will launch in the next year and ones that are further out are my favorites since they satisfy my need to get hyped about stuff I can play soon and stuff that will be a while before I play.

Sony's conference this year probably leaned too much on far off stuff, but it was still games I could get seriously hyped for. Nintendo had the opposite issue and didn't show enough of the long term stuff, which kind of leaves me feeling empty a bit. Don't take me wrong, I'm really excited for Smash and a few other games coming out this year, but I'd like to see more on Bayonetta 3 or Metroid Prime 4 too.
I don’t like hearing about games a year plus away, by the time they come around I will have lost enthusiasm.

A game like Days Gone gets shown to us in 2016 and isn’t out until 2019. I don’t want to know about a product that far in advance.

Ideally I’d hear about a game when it is 6 months out so I can think about it, read about it, take in the hype machine, and buy/play it in a reasonable timeframe.

I'm glad I have such high standards.
The game is literally ten years old.

The Tales of Vesperia port was enough for me to mark this E3 a winner.
A weeab game from 10 years ago makes E3 a winner?

I wish I had such low standards.

Sony's E3 2018 Showcase: A-

Well that was a lot cooler than I expected! Almost everything interested me, some certainly more than others. I felt that insane E3 hype and excitement for two games, Resident Evil 2 and Ghost of Tsushima. Resident Evil 2 had me yelling in excitement and fully freakin out. Ghost of Tsushima gave me chills and awes as I watched the absolutely awesome gameplay and beautiful graphics! These two games alone had me freaking out more than any other game announcement so far, even Doom Eternity. When the dust settles we'll see if which game I'll be most hyped for, but both of these games were just astoundingly cool reveals!

I did think Last of Us: Part 2 looks good, but it isn't a day one purchase. I thought the first game was great, but I don't have the same reverence for it that many other fans do. My ears perked up also when they announced Nioh 2, but I admittedly still need to play the first one before I can get properly hyped for it.

If I were into super heroes more and Spiderman I'd be ultra hyped for it, but honestly I have no interest in playing it. Death Stranding looks like it's so far up its own ass, and I can't imagine it would be getting the attention and hype it has if Kojima wasn't behind it. The new trailer had me roll my eyes and how pretentious it looked, but perhaps when more concrete info comes out on it I'll change my tone towards it. The only game that they showed that flat out turned me off was the one done by the creator of Rick and Morty.

I'm also not a big fan of the showcase format that Sony has used the past two years. I really miss the conference format, and the changing venue gimmick was incredibly unnecessary and stupid. Luckily the games shown off were really top notch overall and I feel pretty good about the conference overall. Let's see if Nintendo de-throwns Sony as the best E3 conference of 2018.
Dude, they showed only a handful of games and ...

You said Last of Us isn't a day one purchase, you'd need to play Nioh 1 before getting hyped for a sequel, you have no interest in Spiderman, Death Stranding shouldn't get any attention or hype it's all Kojima and the Rick and Morty game turned you off.

AND YET, you said almost everything interested you and gave it the best rating of every conference.

I mean, really now, and then saying you wouldn't pay more than $60 for an xbox one.

I think you have some serious confirmation bias and false love of a product you bought for justification.

Ubisoft was my most enjoyable conference so far.

That's great.  I personally had more excitement from the Microsoft show, especially with surprises like Jump Force, Devil May Cry 5, Sekiro, and some others.  Most of what Ubisoft showed off was already revealed, so I really only got entertainment out another nice BGE2 CG trailer and a tiny bit of gameplay, of the musical bit for Donkey Kong, the Star Fox in Star Link reveal, and Skull & Bones gameplay.
Jump Force looks like a budget game, and fighting games, especially anime fighting games, are of niche appeal. Probably a flop like J-Star Victory. DMC5 I already knew about going in and is a sequel to a long running franchise, I find the protagonist douchey like he was in DMC (reboot) as well. Sekiro is kinda cool I guess but honestly Souls-like games peaked at Dark Souls 1.

This Division 2 trailer was one of the best trailers I've ever seen:

This is far and away the best conference, like better than all of the others combined.

Just by every metric wayyy better.

They made it a show with the Just Dance 2019 and Dong Kong Rabbids musical sections.
They had sick genuinely exciting trailers for Beyond Good & Evil 2 and The Division 2.
They accompanied their trailers with developer/director discussion of features etc.
They had a new Trials game that is coming to Switch.
They have an open beta of one of their AAA games - The Crew 2 - to try out for free on June 21st
They had a never before seen trailer of the next entry in one of their major expected franchises - Assassin's Creed - it has a really cool new setting of ancient Greece
They had genuine surprise with the Star Fox in Starlink

Whatever you think of the games, this was just such a good demonstration/show/presentation of everything.

Skull and Bones is kinda just a more developed AC4: Black Flag, I don't think I care about an iteration of that.
Transference doesn't interest me.
That game with the toys, Starlink, does nothing for me either. Despite the inclusion of Star Fox (which to be fair made my jaw drop and surprised me).

No Splinter Cell 'one more thing' ending though!

Trials Rising

I love Trials! And I didn't already know about this before seeing the conference.
