Say what you will about him, something is WRONG when he's pulling out of covering it. First Nintendo does not do conferences, Sony drops out altogether and now on the journalistic side, Geoff Keighley is pulling out.

He wants the game awards to be the bigger show. E3 losing good people like him make it lose relevance and game awards becomes his bigger show now.

Imo this dude and Sony are both arrogant guys pulling out like that. People should still do something during e3.

As for e3 I liked to watch lesser youtubers. This guys show was way too mainstream for my tastes so ill just watch someone lesser known cover it.

He is just a host, people can replace him easily. Sony not showing up and Nintendo potentially following Sony as some news side reported Nintendo name didn't appear in the E3 2020 list of company is the bigger story.

He is not just a host. He is a producer. He pretty much created The Game Awards and is the driving force behind it. He is very involved in what he does and is very well connected. You make not like the guy, but he is smart and works hard. He is still the Doritos Pope though. LOL

He certainly produced an awards show glorified commercial reel.

Geoff Keighly a journalist? Oh and E3 is a relic of the past, no one cares about. Why do anyone waste resources on it when you can put the trailers/videos/reveal on Youtube as soon as they are ready!

Pretty easy to guess why, E3 is dying and I cannot blame Geoff Keighley for skipping E3 and not to mention, last year, E3 2019 had tons of leaks information to all major Journalist, it was one of the worst E3's screw ups, most Journalist don't even wanna put with E3's BS anymore. If that's the case with Geoff, yeah it's time to ditch E3 because of that.

Call me the devil's advocate, but what would make E3 great anyway? All it's ever been was game trailer showcase event, but now with the internet and social media, the whole concept of E3 sounds pointless even on paper. Geoff's actually sitting on a good idea, E3 should lean more towards digital event instead of having a big show floor.

I for one like to watch all new games getting announced in one place, this muppet knows that if E3 goes he will get more trailers for his shitty awards show.

Besides do you wanna watch the boring shows that Sony shits out (state of play I think it is) a few times a year? or MS XO event, then there would be Nintendo directs a few time a year, and PC has none of that so no one cares for PC.

So yeah having to watch 1 show a year is better than watching 10 or so.

E3 is a dinosaur, a relic of the 90s. Its attendance is dwarfed by TGS and Gamescom. Nothing it does couldn't be replaced by streaming video and online press releases.

I'll enjoy it while it lasts, but I know its days are numbered. Good on Geoff Keighley for jumping off a sinking ship.

E3 has PC Game Show, and that show isn't as fun to watch as it used to be.

With social media getting gaming news has become so easy, I personally like to see Sony/MS/Nintendo do their own showing events on their own terms. Pick a month and have all your news in one day. We get lots of leaks nowadays, it takes the fun away from E3. 1 day of a show on each company is way better on any giving date, I can agree on.

I'm not sure he's doing this just to make The Game Awards bigger. With Nintendo not showing up, and now no Sony, and MS likely not showing that much, E3 2020 is going to be a rather boring show.

Also, he didn't say he is quitting E3 forever. He just isn't attending this year.

If y’all wore deodorant and showered semi-regularly, maybe processionals would still be doing E3.

The ESA ruined the show. That and the internet allowing the big 3 to show their stuff on their own terms. Oh well...

So you're happy to watch multiple shows from MS/Ninty/Sony even though you said they should show everything at once, well that's what E3 is for.

I for one won't be watching multiple shows a year.

He's a very slick shill, pretty much, tried his hand at legitimacy with a book, but still a big blimp sized shill at the end of the day, he gets all his connections by metaphorically sucking them off like a big man-whore.

They are realizing getting streamer e-celebs who would happily throw their grandma off a cliff to endorse Mein Kampf for a bag of money is quickly becoming the more appealing contemporary option.

Hopefully it will be cringy as hell and full of gafs as many of them aren't trained in speaking publicly.

Well the idea of e3 was able to play new games that are announced, experience new hardware, and be part of the live reveals. It used to be like the gamer's version of ComicCon. Then there was a period where the public wasn't allowed anymore, and you had to be a member of the media to get in. e3 never recovered.

It needs to be an event, not just game reveals.

E3 has been shit for a long time. But nowadays it's gone way beyond a joke. All they do now is big up consoles with pre-scripted gameplay segments running on hidden PCs and someone on stage holding a controller while pretending to play, very enthusiastically.

How many games this year will have the only on XBOX lie after their trailer even though they won't be? Speaking of games that won't be... where is Deep Down?

Who cares?

He is awful. He is the most awkward loser I have ever seen. He got a guy from Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo to stand beside each other awkwardly while he thought he was some god or something.

Dur hur, they are all joining forces for the sake of gamers!

*Pukes*

Keep that SJW fantasy stuff out of my gaming news. It was beyond lame.

Sony and MS are like...this is dumb. Reggie is just dumb.

@davillain-: @uninspiredcup: @Solaryellow: @clone01: For real though,

If there's anything Keighley is good at, it is suddenly popping into existence without any obvious explanation, and pretending to be important without showing any true contribution to the gaming industry beyond being BFF's with certain game devs.

Geoff Keighley is literally that bum friend you might have had that does not want to get off your couch because he has no where else to go, so you have to third-wheel him on your dinner dates because you really can't trust him to keep his hands off the cookie jar when you're not around.

As pretentious as it sounds, he can't even do awards shows right. If that's truly his pride and joy, he might as well start a porn channel because amateur is what he's got.

Geoff "Oh btw [this game] won [this award] lol congratsNOW here's another Magic the Gathering commercial." Keighley.

He's like the annoying person who was once your friend but now you want him to just go away all while pondering why you were friends with him at all and why he keeps popping up. I won't watch the game awards because this guy is a p.i.t.a.
