Is E3 Worth It Still Part Two

 

 

Cordova, TN; July 7, in the year of our Lord 2013 - - Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is continuing their exploration of the viability of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). Does the industry still need this show? Is it just too expensive for companies and the media? Are there better options out there? What could be done to improve the bad experiences of E3? Will the ESA ever act on these problems? Does anyone even care about these large convention shows? Is there a pay off for all of the extra hours of work?

As far as plans go, this year things went horribly awry. Yet I had a real peace about things this year. Our hotel reservation got all mixed up. By the time anyone noticed it was too late to do anything about it. So canceling the trip was the most logical conclusion. I was exhausted, beat up, and not wanting to attend anyways. The Holy Spirit was clear with me, and I was not to be there this year. So I obeyed God, and felt wonderful. Coverage of the event went great from here in Memphis. We got done early, and were able to take breaks in the middle of it. A friend over at Gamers Heroes was kind enough to send me some swag.

My biggest complaint about E3 is they cram three weeks worth of work into three days. Okay maybe four days. Add two days of travel into that, and attending is one big massive migraine. I know some of you are like: “stop whining, at least you get to attend.” Please do not get me wrong, I am very thankful for all of the access I have, and continue to receive. I am blessed to have been able to experience so many wonderful things. I just wish the content of E3 was stretched out. Make a major announcement the week after E3. Release the assets the day after E3 ends. Something to help. I hear companies complain all of the time they are ignored or drowned out. Well, its because everybody and their brother has something to share. Our minds can only handle so much.

E3 has become a gluttony of information on video games. There is a vacuum after the show due to media exhaustion, nothing new to report, and still trying to catch up from the convention. Yet there are conventions of all kinds going on constantly. I can not turn around without some announcement of some convention somewhere. I know E3 is big money, so it is doubtful any important changes will be made anytime soon. I still see the show as viable. I hope and pray something is done to improve the experience.
