The first time I heard about E3 was when I was 8. I read about it in a Nintendo Power (At least I think it was a Nintendo Power it was quite a few years ago). And I had just gotten my N64 and fallen in love with console gaming. After staring at the pictures for hours and reading the articles over and over again until the pages were frayed and worn I swore one day I would go. Years later when sites like IGN started to stream the press conferences and the show floor I skipped school and took days off from work just so I could watch them. They were amazing. This only fueled my fire to go more. And in 2012 I was given the opportunity to go and it blew my mind. I mean I knew it was going to be awesome but my brain could not physically handle the amount of awesome that is contained in the LA convention center. All the games, the sounds and of course the swag. Every year since I look forward to going because when they say those are the best few days in gaming they arnt kidding. Now that there are 6 press conferences I am going to have to bring an external battery just so I can stream them all on my phone while I wait in line. Needless to say. I am excited. And next week cannot come soon enough.
If you are going too and happen to see me feel free to stop, say hi and join in the excitement. Because we are in by far one of the coolest industries in existence.
