If you're a gamer, the most important dates for you this year were June 16, 17, and 18—three days when the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center dropped bomb after bomb AFTER BOMB.

The 2015 edition of E3 shook the gaming world to its core. Are we exaggerating? Not by much—as this list of new games that made an appearance at this year's show would prove! All of the trailers below were first seen at the trade show.

Check them out!


1)   FALLOUT 4

For: Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Release date: November 10, 2015

The sequel to 2008’s Fallout 3 takes place in the—say it with us—a post-apocalyptic future where there are fully voiced male and female protagonists and jetpacks! You’ll also be able to build your own outposts.

2)   THE LAST GUARDIAN

For: PlayStation 4
Release date: 2016

We’ve been waiting almost seven years since its announcement but hey, you can’t rush perfection. Team Ico (known for Ico and Shadow of the Colossus) has been working on this game for so long that we were afraid it would become vaporware (See: Mega Man Legends 3). But now that it’s back on track, we can collectively heave a sigh of relief.

3)   KINGDOM HEARTS 3

For: PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Release date: TBA

It’s truly the season for sequels because here’s another one. And now Sora’s Keyblade has acquired the ability to transform into anything. (That was not a euphemism. But we guess it could be.)

4)   ROCK BAND 4

For: PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Release date: Late 2015

Sing your ass off and rock it out in the safety of your living room where nobody can boo you off the stage and throw bottles at you. And now you can even improvise and do your own bitchin’ (at least in your mind) guitar solos.

5)   STAR WARS: BATTLEFRONT 3

For: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows
Release date: November 17, 2015

Play as Luke Skywalker or Han Solo and hop on a speeder or engage in some intergalactic dogfight on iconic places like Hoth and Endor.

6)   STREET FIGHTER V

For: PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows
Release date: March 2016

After a slew of spin-off games and the liberal use of such terms as “Alpha,” “Super,” and “Extreme” tacked-on, we finally have a legitimate sequel. And there’s a new super mode called V-Trigger which requires you to take in damage to upgrade your attacks (i.e. Ryu’s hadouken and shoryuken become electrified). Confirmed characters include Ryu, Birdie, Chun-Li, M. Bison, Cammy, and Charlie Nash.

7)   SHENMUE 3

For: Playstation 4
Release date: TBA

Yes, that Dreamcast game. Imagine: The last game, Shenmue II, was released way back in 2001 and now it’s getting a sequel. A Kickstarter campaign was subsequently put up and broke the Guinness World Record for fastest video game to raise $1 million (that was within one hour and 42 minutes). And we’ve been dying to see Ryo kick the stuffing outta Lan Di once and for all.

8)   SUPER MARIO MAKER

For: Wii U
Release date: September 11, 2015

Fact: You are never too old for Mario. Ever. And now Nintendo gives you the chance to create your own stages. Place some lava pits, Chain Chompers, invisible blocks, and throw in a few Bowsers just for good measure and make your own virtual platform hell.

9)   CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS 3

For: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows
Release date: November 6, 2015

Some pew-pew-pew action set in the far future of 2060 where cyborg soldiers are the norm? Sign us up!

10)   UNCHARTED 4: A THIEF'S END

For: PlayStation 4
Release date: March 2016

This will be the final installment in the series—starring Nathan Drake anyway. There will be a more expansive environment, plus, you’ll get to test out your driving skills when you hop from one vehicle to another. AND HAVE YOU SEEN THE GAMEPLAY TRAILER?!

11)   XCOM 2

For: Microsoft Windows
Release date: November 2015

After attempting to defend the earth (and ultimately failing; yup, we spoiled it, so shoot us) from an alien invasion in the first game, your mission now is to sneak around the now alien-occupied cities and build a resistance. Expect five updated classes and new stealth tactics.

12)   HORIZON ZERO DAWN

For: PlayStation 4
Release date: 2016

Guess Ultron was right about everything becoming metal (well, almost). In this post-apocalyptic setting you must fight against cyborg dinosaurs. And some of them can shoot rocket launchers out of their backs. If that isn’t fucking awesome, we don’t know what is.

13)   METAL GEAR SOLID V: PHANTOM PAIN

For: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows
Release date: September 1, 2015

The fact that it’s the last project series creator Hideo Kojima will work on under Konami is incentive enough to check this out.

14)   MIRROR'S EDGE CATALYST

For: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows
Release date: February 23, 2016

This game is less of a prequel/sequel and more of a remake for the current-gen console. As Faith, you must parkour your way through a cyberpunk cityscape and escape the baddies. First-person perspective definitely lends an immersive experience especially if you’re too chicken shit to try parkour yourself.
