In a vote among nearly 10,000 gamers the EA Games Press Conference of E3 2018 was voted a D ranking. Geoff Keighley is the journalist / producer who created The Game Awards and host of the E3 Coliseum, and created the poll himself on Twitter just moments after the show. At the time of this posting the poll has received 9,699 votes with 22 hours and 17 minutes left. But the clear reaction 1 hour after EA took stage is clear.
Andrea Rene hosted this year’s EA Games Press Conference, called EA Play, Saturday at 11 AM Pacific Time. The show was two and a half hours long and played host to new indie game reveals, Star Wars announcements, EA Sports updates, the first look at Anthem, and of course new Battlefield V information.
While many fans of EA Games will be pleased, some of the more skeptical gaming community members have had their hesitant outlook verified. Overall it was a mediocre showing with EA clearly trying to reduce the amount of time spent on their usually boring segments but presenters often being too nervous to deliver a solid presentation.
