“Worlds of Wonder”

As E3 2017 begins to wind down, it’s time to recognize the most impressive upcoming games showcased at the iconic convention. Gathering together in Los Angeles, the gaming industry celebrated 23 years of E3. This year’s event underwent some major changes, opening its doors to 15,000 members of the public. It was a news-packed week for games, from rock solid conferences, to an abundance of exciting reveals and announcements. 

This year’s eclectic lineup of 10 nominees competing for the prestigious Game of Show title range from a mature story of fatherhood, to a cooperative split-screen escapade, to leading a diverse resistance with the aim to overthrow Nazi occupation, and beyond. However, one game rose above the compelling competition, emerging victorious with a plethora of charm to boot. I’m ecstatic to present my E3 2017 Game of Show award to none other than Super Mario Odyssey and the creative team that’s bringing the uniquely bizarre adventure to life.
