The Electronic Entertainment Expo, the biggest annual convention of the gaming industry, opened its doors today, June 11, at the Los Angeles Convention Center for a three-day exhibit of what we can expect from video games in the near future.
Anyone who has been privileged enough to be there (read: not us) has described the event as a loud, colorful extravaganza featuring our favorite game companies trying to outshine one another. They do it with booth babes, extremely large monitors, and, most important, the newest of new videogames.
This year serves to be the most special in years as we witness the dawning of new consoles, The Xbox One and the Sony PS4, both of which will be released late 2013, for $499 and $399 respectively.
With the arrival of these new consoles come a deluge of new games. Here are the 20 titles that really brought out the raving nerd in us. Get ready to press start!
1) Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare
Xbox 360/Xbox One
The popular bean-spewing zombie-blasting franchise branches out in a new direction, and turns over a new leaf as it grows into a third-person multiplayer action title. Think Gears Of War with fewer shades of brown, and with the different species of plants playable as different character classes.
