got to give some props to GS im usually a G4 guy around this time of the year...but this year i easily give better coverage to GS...each console and dev seemed to be just as good and if i missed anything it didnt matter because it was just a click away...at least now i know where im going this time around next year and so on...

Yeah, I endured all those hours and it was great. Great coverage! I miss E3 already. See y'all next year! Thanks GameSpot!

It was good, but I was expecting Elder Scrolls 5, since it is meant to be coming next year. And since I expected it to arrive, all of my friends are now laughing at me. (I'm the only Elder Scrolls fan out of a group of my friends) However, E3 was a fantastic show, it's one of the best ones I've seen so far.

i thought that this e3 was the best i've seen i like all the new games and new tech for all the systems. i can't wait for halo 3 odst, halo reach, god of war 3, uncharted 2, ratchet and clank, modern warfare 2 and natal for the 360.

Loved this years E3 (maybe not nintendo's press conference). Cant wait to see how natal and sony's motion sensing thing turn out.

I thought Need for Speed: Shift looked excellent. I haven't been this excited for a racing game in awhile.

I watched the video here on GameSpot showing the new Wolfenstein game, I can't wait to get it for the Xbox 360, but I want to see how it will turn out before buying it, but it looked insane, near the end, a scientist and a Nazi officer are talking about a Veil portal and suddenly BJ shows up and the officer pushes the scientist into the portal, then a few seconds later the scientist emerges from the portal heavily mutated, and kills the Nazi officer that pushed him into the portal. Anyway, Wolfenstein is definitely on my list of games that I want.

no golden sun DS hands-on impressions... and homer even walked by it and saw there was some gameplay... and the freezes/lag were annoying too but those are my only complaints

This was a great E3. It's going to be pretty hard to tops this for the 2010 E3 but hopefully they can.

E3 as it should be... amazing! Lot's of interesting announcements along with some jaw dropping games. I found at least twenty titles that i'm looking forward to, and several more i never even heard of. ^^

It was one great and impressive E3. Can't wait for the next year.

all n all i was a bit dissappointed with this years' e3 cause most of the games showcased were already announced......i was hoping for a new Devil may cry game and a new burnout game, or gears of wars 3, a new heavenly sword may be, or sequel to mirrors edge....even a new GTA

The Hollow Men was written by Thomas Stearns Eliot. Thus far, E3 2009 has been written by Lark Anderson and the GameSpot staff.

Nothing better than ending it with the game of all games... SUPER MARIO BROS!

I love the Hollow Men reference. I also feel this E3 was way better than last years.

I have to say this years E3 was much better than i thought it would be. I found myself wasting countless hours over the past 4 days reading articles and watching conferences/demos! You could say this is a good sign though, as thankfully it shows E3 is heading in the right direction again.
