This Showcase was really great. Just Dragon's Dogma 2 would have been more than enough, but then it also had:

- A sick Alan Wake 2 trailer with a Halloween-adjacent date;
- Spider-Man 2 looks absolutely bonkers fun and a proper sequel;
- Ghostrunner 2 looks awesome;
- Phantom Blade Zero has the sickiest sword fighting animations;
- Sword of the Sea is basically Journey 2 in all, but name;
- Helldivers 2, looks very generic, but Helldivers 1 is excellent, so gonna trust the developers' vision;
- The Talos Principle 2, which looks to be even better than the first one, which was an already fantastic game;
- Neva almost made me cry - WTF?! - and a lot of other people too in a few minutes, almost like the first 10 minutes of Pixar's Up;
- Cat Quest looked fun;
- The Plucky Squire is just jolly and looks like what Paper Mario would dream to even be half of;
- Towers of Aghasba is basically a better technical wise The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild/Tears of the Kingdom;
- Metal Gear Solid 3/Delta: Snake Eater Remake and the Metal Gear Solid Vol. 1 collection with MGS 1-3, also implying there will be a Vol. 2 collection with hopefully MGS4 and the PSP and Vita MGS games, maybe even MGS 5 as well;
- Assassin's Creed Mirage looked really great with a trailer showing the series going back to its roots, which will please many that wanted the old style back;
- Revenant Hill is basically Night in the Woods 2, which means it has the potential to be a truly great game;
- Street Fighter 6 had the best trailer yet - maybe with the exception of the reveal trailer - and it got me really excited for the story, which looks very interesting;
- Crossfire: Sierra Squad looks sick, the gameplay looks much better than that of any Call of Duty of Battlefield and it's in VR, looks to be a really great FPS gameplay wise;
- Synapse looks interesting and got 10 times better just by adding David Hayter and Jennifer Hale;
- Bungie's Marathon had one of the best trailers and hands down the best music of any trailer in the show;
- Fairgame by Jade Raymond's studio looks so much like Watch Dogs that it's uncanny, but maybe it will be good, not much faith in GAAS games these days.

Overall, an excellent show with only a few minor letdowns like the trailer for the Gran Turismo movie - which had no business being in a video games conference - and that Splatoon rip-off called Foamstars by Square Enix, which reminded me and many others of Balan Wonderland...

Edit: Crap, forgot about Final Fantasy 16, with so many excellent games it's hard to keep track of everything, surprisingly, the trailer had very little spoilers, which is shocking for a game by Square Enix, most likely Naoki Yoshida supervised the edit, it's a great trailer that hints at finally ending the "Crystals" legacy from almost all the Final Fantasy games, which is great and will give more creative freedom to the developers of future games.

It was mediocre for many people, there were many great announcements but these CG cinematic trailers are terrible. They give you no idea about the game genre, happened in the past few years that even a card game got dramatic trailers, people were pumped until it turned out that it’s a card game or something. I want to see real gameplay which was rare during this show

@King_Grunt: I totally understand you. I am almost 40 right now and sometimes feel similar. I am not interested in live service games or multiplayer games. I just want good single player campaigns which have more to offer than just stupid action. Games like The Last of Us or God of War which touch my heart.

I wasn't really flashed either. Final Fantasy and Spiderman 2 will definitely be good.
I have a weird feeling about Alan Wake 2, like the game is 5 years late.
And Assassin's Creed looks like a remake of the first part?!

I would have liked to see something from Mortal Kombat 1 or the Eldenring DLC. I would also have been interested in Lords of the Fallen - the first part completely passed me by. But the game looks awesome :D

I respect everyone's opinions, but it seems like all of you are only focusing on what you consider bad and exagerating it. Here are the Story Driven Single-Player Emotional games you all seem to be forgetting:

- Neva, this game made most people who watched the trailer very emotional and about to cry or even actually crying,
- Spider-Man 2 is most likely going to have a very emotional story, just like Spider-Man 1 and Miles Morales did;
- Sword of the Sea by Giant Squid, which looks like Journey 2 and Journey 1 made so many people cry;
- The Talos Principle 2, if it's half as great as the first game, it will be an excellent game with thought and emotional depth, making players question their lives;
- Metal Gear Solid 3/Delta: Snake Eater may be far away, but the collection with all the first 3 MGS games will be out soon and they're all very emotional, specially MGS3 - everyone cried at the ending.
- Towers of Aghasba's writing and the tone just screams emotional and care for the species, environment and trying to survive and make a worth society - that turtle saying they hoped Humankind was gone for good, most likely due to all te shit the previous people did, just got to me, Humanity destroys the environment and slaughter countless animais whatever it goes, this game seems like it will highlight that aspect of Humanity;
- Dragon's Dogma 2 needs no introductions and while I can't say it will be a very emotional game, Dragon's Dogma 1 had many great philosophical conversations and dilemmas, what's right and what's wrong, what is honor and what is decency, it also questioned politics, morality, society and many other aspects of Humanity, so it will at least make players think;
- Alan Wake 2 is Remedy's darling and from the trailer, it seems like the story will be excellent with a lot of emotions, twists and turns;
- Assassin's Creed games almost always have great and emotional stories, it may be somewhat buried in a collect fest repetitive design, but if people just do the main story quests, they will be in for a great experience;
- Revenant Hill is basically Night in the Woods 2, the very critically and publicly acclaimed game with an excellent and emotional story;
- Phantom Blade Zero seems like it will be a great game in the style of Ghost of Tsushima and God of War, even if it may end up not being as emotional as then, it will more than compensate in style and combat if the gameplay is as great as it looks;
- The Plucky Squire looks gorgeous and maybe it will have an emotional story, though it might just be as deep as the stories in Mario games, only time will tell.

That's 12 games - 14 if one counts all 3 Metal Gear Solid games, all Story Driven Single-Player games. There were other Single-Player games as well, but that didn't seem to focus on story, like Teardown, Ghostrunner 2, Immortals of Aveum, Cat Quest: Pirates of the Purribean and Ultros, totalling 19 Single-Player games. There's also Street Fighter 6's story mode, which looks great.

I get that there was a lot of focus on Online Multiplayer Games as a Service titles, but the showcase highlighted a lot of Story Driven Single-Player games as well. If people focus only on the bad, they will forget all the good that was shown, which is a disservice to all these great games and their developers.

I also get how everyone feels, give me 1 Story Driven Single-Player game over 1.000 Online/Multiplayer Games. However, there's space for both and like it or not, these developers and publishers are for-profit companies and the games that earn the most money are those GAAS games that we loathe.

Just focus on the good and ignore the bad. Fortnite's and other GAAS games' success didn't and won't stop Story Driven Single-Player games from being developed, released and making their own success as well.

This was still an excellent show in my opinion, but I do respect that most of the people on the internet didn't like the show. Too little 1st-party games, too much CG trailers, etc.

Hopefully Xbox will have a better show in most people's eyes, but I doubt it since they thought Redfall was a good game and that it would have received a better reception than it did.

As for the Summer Games Fest show, I love Keighley's shows, but people always complain about the ads in his shows - that's how he can make them, with sponsors' money - and that his shows don't have many big announcements, perhaps with te exception of The Game Awards.

People want those bombastic E3 press conferences that we all loved - I do too, but those are gone for good and even they had a lot of issues with CG trailers, fake games that even the developers didn't know about, vaporware that never became reality, slices of games that were just made for E3 and the actual game didn't have most or any of it, Kickstarter's concepts that were shown as if they were actual games, games that were announced 5-10 years earlier than their launch, etc.

We all should have realistic expectations of what these shows are - massive collective ad campaigns - and how they have transformed over the years through streaming, the pandemic and changes in culture. Leaks are also 10 times more rampant than 10-20 years ago, that's why a game like Dragon's Dogma 2 was announced in a t-shirt instead of being a bombastic reveal like the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, because the developers didn't want it to leak.

I know this is a fucking wall of text, but I'm tired of people complaining over and over about these modern shows like if they're still stuck in the best years of E3 nostalgia. The world has moved on and changed with the times, as long as people have realistic expectations of what these shows are and of what they can and cannot do anymore, it will save a lot of people a lot of frustration and disappointment.

People can also just not watch these entire shows and just look at the trailers after the show ends, only looking at what catches their eyes. If they don't like what they see in the first 10-30 seconds of a trailer, close it and go to the next trailer.

It is a wall, not reading it but the last 2 paragraphs. These types of games existed back in 2016 and were revealed in their own ways but they did not take up the majority of a "PlayStation Showcase", which in its name alone sets a certain bar for a game's showcase.

E3 2016 is the benchmark. Massive first/second party games were all shown at this event with either inengine trailers or pure gameplay or a combination of both, some things even had release dates, I KNOW, SHOCKER. God Of War alone set the bar for that show and it was only a minute into it when Kratos appeared.

My problem personally is there was nothing here that looked like it will be mind blowing looking........... in another year from now. Phantom Blade looked cool but strangely very much like a last gen game. Why do I bring up E3 2016. Because that is the SAME point we were at in the PS4's life that we are now in the PS5's life................ and Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart from June 2021 is still the only PS5 only game that blew us away visually to date so far.

It was a disappointment across the games industry from fans and multiple outlets, get over it.

It's sad when Alan Wake 2, the new Assassins Creed (!!) and music by Justice in Marathon CGI trailer are the best things in a Playstation showcase.

Too much service games, Sony for sure is heading into the wrong direction.
