No falling out.

Bethesda also showed off Battlecry, its upcoming class-based shooter. Dishonored 2 was officially announced, and it looks interesting. Following its huge reveal, open-world RPG Fallout 4 was demoed and we got our first glimpse of Boston's post-apocalypse. Finally, Fallout mobile game Fallout Shelter was unveiled, and it's rolling out worldwide now!

I'm most excited for Dishonored. I don't know if I'll ever get back into Doom or Fallout. Battlecry looks like it could use a lot of work; the animations look janky, like they're missing frames or something.

So Bethesda shows off like 3 games and they already win E3? At least wait for Sony and Microsoft to go like damn

@thecman25: Nah. Sony already had their big hurrah this year with the release of Bloodborn and all the exclusive content coming for multiplat titles this year and Microsoft is gonna be all about Halo 5. Unless Nintendo pulls something huge out of their hats, Bethesda deserves the early nod.

@PyreofKoL: So how about Square Enix?

Dissapointed there is no new Elder Scrolls game for the AAA market.

@ecter1216: Why do I have a feeling they have been working on "Skyrim 2" since the first Skyrim dropped, just as they admitted they have been working on FO4 since 3 was released?

I suspect we'll hear about it being ready for release in Fall 2016.... at next E3.

@ecter1216: I was really looking forward to another installment to the beloved Skyrim myself. I guess they think that the trash they revamped and relaunched for consoles is even stevens for a little while? I dunno but you can't really doctor up a shit sandwich no matter how much mustard you use.

With D00M IV and Fallout 4 (wasn't even a Fallout fan but wow at FO4)

Who can really top those games at e3?

It's not going to be easy, that's for sure.

I am rolling with Bethesda all the way! The funny part is, anyone from the DC/MD/VA area would agree that it is the absolute most random choice for a video game company that arises out of our region considering the substantial amount of lawyers and doctors live there. I guess they are the ones that have the money to afford to purchase games for their children! http://www.aundrz.com/2015/06/fallout-4-trailer-graphics-and-more.html

Very very good start to E3... i will probably get fallout 4, but not at release.

but you have to give credit were credits due, it was a great show, not enough to win it since they only showed 4 games (5 maybe) but bethesda is growing in peoples minds and that is cool. First E3 show and what a show. =)

E3 might already be over as far as I'm concerned.

Bethesda seems like they already won E3. Microsoft and Sony will just be throwing Am-I-A-Pretty-Girl?? drunken pressers. I'll watch them... later.

@PixelAddict: There's no such thing as a "winner of E3"

@saturatedbutter: Bud, there has ALWAYS been a winner of E3. The gaming mags and websites always have their picks, as does the general gaming public, and its usually the latter that seems to matter more to people. Granted, winners have been thin on the ground since E3 went to hell but they're still there.

@PyreofKoL: The only people that ever think there's a "winner of E3" are dummies on forums with nothing to do with their time and hyper competitive. There has never been a "winner of E3". There's nothing to win. There's nothing to lose. There's just businesses hawking their wares and one company doing a better job of hawking their stuff doesn't mean they "beat" the other companies hawking their stuff.

@saturatedbutter: ...and I suppose you contend there is no "winner of Internets", too.

No matter. You're wrong. And, therefore, you win no internets.

@saturatedbutter: Hm. No sense of humor, and overly dramatic about the rules of what something is (winner/loser/non-competition).

Right. I'm the one with OCD. Keep trying. Sport.

Great start to what's shaping up to be a great E3 this year! Fallout4 looks pretty darn good, i'll admit to not being a fan of the series, I tried but something (for me) was missing from 3 and new vegas. Don't get me wrong there great games and I respect the size and amount of content, I just could never get into them. (which is weird because of my love of the elder scrolls games). But after seeing what they've done with 4, I can't wait for this november to play it. That and Doom looks pretty awesome, especially with the map/game editor tool, if it works it could be awesome. All in all a great start to E3, can't wait to see what gets announced tomorrow!

@silentrambo: I could never get into the Fallout games either, and I also love open world rpgs. I think it was just the generic story that put me off.

Two things learned:

1) Gaming paradise is approaching, courtesy of Bethesda.

2) Gamespot's new comment system has destroyed the website.

Ok now I'm little bit more interested in Fallout 4, but not much, just a little. Last but not least, what's wrong with Fallout fanboys?! Most annoying and rudest of them all!

They all look pretty great; I can see great improvements in Fallout 4 as well. I usually don't get excited during game announcement but well done, Bethesda

P.S: GS, the new comment section and video player are both impractical and really bad, especially when using a mobile device. Get it fixed ASAP or I'm moving on to a different site.

Such a damn good show from these guys. Fallout 4 looks like it's going to be absolutely incredible, from start to finish. So tempted by the collector's edition, because that pip boy looks amazing.
