E3 is NOT the Super Bowl of Video Games

 

 

Cordova, TN; June 5, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is correcting a mistake in the video game industry. Family Friendly Gaming drank the Kool-Aid in the past. We got sucked into the propaganda and lies told by PR and these self-centered, self-absorbed, and greedy companies. We decided to take an honest, real, and genuine look at the Super Bowl, and the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). These two events are drastically different. All of us associated with Family Friendly Gaming want to apologize to you the reader. We are sorry that in years past we regurgitated the center of the universe disease lie that E3 is the Super Bowl of Video Games. It is not. E3 is just another expo event featuring companies trying to generate interest in their products. They are trying to drum up sales.

Too many gaming cheerleaders err gaming journalists have propped up this lie. They have compared a meaningless expo to a real sports event where one team wins. In fact let us look at the National Football League (NFL). Real players compete on teams of offense and defense. They have sixty minutes to compete in regular play. If the game is tied then it goes into overtime. Ever heard of E3 going into overtime? E3 goes on for days, and the Super Bowl happens in a few hours with penalties, time outs, and a half time. The NFL has a season. The top six teams from each conference play each other in the playoffs. Winner continues on, and the loser go home. Finally the NFL comes down to two teams. The AFC champion, and the NFC champion. They go at it in one game - winner takes home the trophy. At E3 as long as you have money, your company can buy space. You buy your way into E3.

There are no clear or real winners in E3. There are not two teams going at it. Every company there is trying to grab the attention of the buyers for retail chains, and the media. Why? Because they are spending money on space at the Expo as an investment to get more money down the line. If they can get the buyers for retail chains to agree to carry their products then they have a good chance at better sales. If they can get the media gaming cheerleader journalists excited about their products then they know stories will be written about their products. What does that exposure get them? Increased sales. More money, and more profit. In fact the outcome from the exposure at E3 is not fully known until many months, or years down the line. So E3 can not have any winners officially declared because it is nothing like the Super Bowl. There is no head to head action.

I hope you will analytically look at what you are being told by the media cheerleaders and acknowledge the truth. E3 is no Super Bowl. E3 is an event to make these companies money. It is a great event to network and see products that will be coming out in the near future. It is also a colossal waste of money. Too many companies have lost too much money trying to make elaborate stages for E3. From a real professional wrestling ring, to massive statues. Games could cost less if the video game industry would progress past the archaic E3 event. But then someone would not be making massive amounts of money. You know what they say - follow the money.


God bless,
