  • E3 2017. An absolute perfect event.

  • *sad piano music*

  • Now normally, I don't care about E3. I've been let down too many times

  • TOO many times,

  • have I watched this shit

  • and I get so hyped for a game

  • an- and then it just kills it.

  • Guy: I worry about

  • like

  • disappointing people

  • ya' know.

  • Did the game just crash?!

  • The PS4 just completely crashed.

  • Ehm..

  • sort of

  • Pewds: I found that..

  • it's so much more satisfying to be pleasantly surprised by a game

  • rather than just

  • bitterly

  • disappointed.

  • Hype is dangerous.

  • Hype kills good games.

  • If you see a cinematic trailer

  • And you think

  • "aw that game looks cool"

  • you better run,

  • run real fast.

  • 'Cause most likely the game will be shit.

  • *sounds of various "wow"s and "woah"s*

  • But now,

  • I've learned to appreciate E3 for a different reason...

  • The Cringe compilations.

  • And god, thank you,

  • thank you for this year, it was

  • beautiful!

  • *silence*

  • And really gre-- [laughter].

  • It was- it was spectacular,

  • but it got better as time went on,

  • who what?

  • Aw, Jesse.

  • God bless you. God bless you.

  • Now don't get me wrong

  • I think it's

  • cool that EA brings in influencers to promote games,

  • but isn't Jesse a prank channel?

  • J- ,

  • I don't know

  • Whatever like,

  • I don't care

  • But at the same time, I could have been there

  • actually you know what that's prob-

  • Good people like myself

  • with these wha- vwo- wha- vile/foul/vow?(wtf did he say?)

  • disgusting claims.

  • "Game companies can't ignore Youtube or the hope of reaching a broader audience

  • but if you don't understand what the talent they're paying can and can't do well and plan accordingly it's going to be awkward."

  • Well goddammit that actually makes sense Polygon. God dammit
