E3 has always been a big deal to me — it’s where a lot of big names show off their quality titles. I hope to go there one day but till then, I’m going to have to be satisfied with watching live streams.

This year there are a ridiculous number of games scheduled to be on show. Shooters, role playing games, brawlers, platformers and everything else under the sun.

Which game are you looking forward to the most? I’ve added some AAA titles off the top of my head so feel free to add any that I’m missing.

So vote away and as always, we’d love to hear your thoughts – simply post a comment below!
