    I’ve been luckily enough to avoid the Smash fandom so for me the Smash announcement just means I now have a new Smash game to play with friends.

    My thoughts on Elder Scrolls and Starfield are basically the same as you, there nice logos but we knew they were being made and now we still know they’re being made and so what’s everyone freaking out about?

    Super Mario party looks really fun and interesting, will probably play it a bunch when Smash gets boring.

    Last of Us 2, Spider-Man and Kingdom Hearts 3 were games I was excited for before E3, and are games I’m still excited for after E3.

    I was most pleased by the ESVI announcement. I was worried that Bethesda had decided to sink all of its Elder Scrolls ideas into ESO and move away from single-player ES games entirely, but apparently that is not the case.

    I was also pleased to see a new single-player game because my experience with an Online Elder Scrolls was…well. Something about the world setup felt extremely artificial compared to Skyrim. That’s how it goes with most MMOs — you beat the bad guy and then he’s back within five minutes so the next player can have their turn. The fact that enemies had a red aura didn’t help at all. Coming off of Skyrim, it felt like eating a cheap lollipop after a dinner of steak and potatoes.

    And then I had the same problem you did with the launcher, and receiving no useful advice from the company about how to get back into my account, I departed ESO forever.

    Here’s to ESVI, whatever it turns out to be.
