There were no megatons at E3 this year. No Half-Life 3s, or giant new Bethesda RPGs, or new Grand Theft Autos. But we did get a ton of great looking games across every conceivable platform, along with some very pleasant surprises – few games left quite as big of an impression as Ubisoft's gloriously daft Mario + Rabbids game.
When we set out to build a list of notable titles from the show, we came up with more than 20 before we even checked our score. Below you'll see the things that left an impression, which include everything from underdog indie standouts like Ashen to a humongous and ambitious new Bioware game that's been in development for more than four years already
For more discussion on these games and more, check out our podcasts from every day of E3. Across six E3 shows we talk about all of the major announcements, and give our hands-on impressions of every new game we played at E3.
