    I think they forgot it's purpose - started as a showcase for new tech and included video games, but grabbed on to the GAMER culture and tried to have epic maymays. In addition to not having fricking anything worth mentioning, less gameplay trailers and more "cinematic" trailers or 3 second teasers.

      No point in continuing it in the age of youtube and streaming. Literally just a waste of money for the companies that attend.

      Nintendo did by starting the Direct trend.

      it happened way before when they stopped letting the public in E3. they used to sell tickets. i don't know if they went back on this, but if they did in the recent years, the damage was already done

        the frick are you on about? letting in the public is one it's downfall factors, it went from an industry show to a lesser pax or some shit. In it's final days before covid you had crackhead twitch streamers like Ice Posedion and his group just walk in at the end of a day

        This. E3 started to fall apart sometime between 2015-2017 when it was Nintendo who said frick it they're doing their own event and not selling out the $200,000 for floor space at E3.

      that doesn't jive with me. E3/CES seemed like marketing more than anything, and there are plenty of specialized conferences for much smaller industries (i.e. GIS) that justify not going solely remote.
      I do agree with the gamer culture killing it, along with everything that came with gaming becoming mainstream along with everything else 2010+

    gamergate. it was industry-orchestrated in order to completely flip the culture of the hobby upside down.
    all other media had their own "gamergate" and it was all set up to fall one by one. comicbookgays showed the most resistance

    it taught millions of regular people to take sides as we headed into the first big election (2016) and here we are today. before gamergate, people wouldn't so rabidly takes sides like this. i'm not just talking about games, but games are a lot bigger than people think it is (it's freaking entertainment; how can they not attack it?) and it was a part that set up and got ready for the world we have today
    >men vs. women; women vs. men
    >everything is about race
    >constant dem.-rep. bickering
    >feminism and its SIMPs
    >just picking new sides to get into every day as long as it "speaks" to you or "gives you community."

    zoe never slept with those five reviewers for good scores. it was all set up and industry-orchestrated to push away the old, original audience for an eternal era of the woke, subscription-laden "perfect consoomers" who got into -- or back into -- into video games during the height of the nerd trend that the industry noticed before gamergate; they then amassed this massive plan to make them their main demographic.

        At least two of them openly admitted to doing it, which is why the accusations stuck in the first place, moron.

        your kind would downplay one of the bigger moments that shifted the west downward. but go on ahead and believe whatever makes you comfy.

      It wasn't orchestrated. The first time we saw GamerGate was when people bullied Nintendo into abandoning the Wind Waker art style for Zelda. The reaction to TP at E3 in 2004 was exclusively people from Gamespot and IGN cheering on their harrassment campaign, a mere 8 years before they scorned fans for doing the same thing for Mass Effect 3's horrendous ending, or TLOU2's forced wokeness.

      They're the first ones with the balls to try. Then everyone else followed suit because it turns out a YouTube video and an entire scripted and choreographed presentation generate the same buzz

    They kept fricking with the format and the association handling it was incompetent. So the companies slowly began to make their own events where they could communicate with their consumers and investors more efficiently. Then the pandemic forced everybody to pull the plug and go all in on independent events or online Directs that have the same or better benefits to their numbers.

    The space itself used to be a business oriented trade show and they would have meetings and shit in the rooms of the convention center and hotel rooms, so opening it up to the Public to get more money ruins that and also gave the Public a lacking Expo that didn't have all the fun pandering fan shit any video game "Con" would have. Everybody lost.

    they allowed the public to buy tickets and attend then it stopped being a business conference and became a nerd convention to show trailers. after that, Nintendo started doing their directs and finally COVID just finished the job.

    streaming made it pointless to even attend sicne why bother paying extra when you can just show it online, and for people who may have been attracted to E3 why bother going to one of those and having to deal with massive crowds when you can watch a presentation at home

    in 2006 they hit richard garriot with a fine for making too much noise, and by 2012 large companies such as ncsoft and atari stopped showing up. its been a downhill woke shill fest ever since. I was under the impression that they cancled all e3s during the covid lockdowns and since then have gave zero fricks about it

    E-celebs shills are a fraction of the price, willing to say just about anything, and have far more reach. "Hands-on with a demo" isn't some exclusive privilege anymore, let alone something outside of diehards give a shit about.

    The people wanted it to be a stadium event but the producers wanted it to be media and companies forever but that ship had sailed. They really missed a big trick by just getting rid of it entirely.

    What should have happened is they rent out the Staples Center and have a nightly show with 30000 screaming fans. Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo. Booing and cheering. Get raucous, loud and hype. Outside the stadium have corporate events privately. People would watch it, ratings would be HUGE on Twitch, can charge 1000 a ticket easily. Celebrities would be everywhere bro. Who doesn't want to see the greatest new games in the world?
