Mass Effect 3 dubbed 'Most Promising' Retail Game Of E3
« on: June 20, 2011, 11:11:40 PM »
Most of you know me as someone hard to impress. This year's E3 managed to get (or keep) me hyped on not one, not two, but three games. I imagine most people here have heard of Mass Effect 3. According to EEDAR (Electronic Entertainment Design and Research), ME3 had the "highest number of recorded page views among all tracked games" during the conference. They estimate the game will sell 20% more copies than Mass Effect 2 based on this data. What does this mean? It got more attention than Battlefield 3 even with all of its advertising and history. I would say that is a fairly impressive feat.

The top 20 most promising retail releases showcased at E3 2011, according to EEDAR, are as follows:

1. Mass Effect 3 (Electronic Arts)
2. Battlefield 3 (Electronic Arts)
3. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda)
4. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Activision Blizzard)
5. Assassin's Creed Revelations (Ubisoft)
6. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (Sony Computer Entertainment)
7. Batman: Arkham City (Warner Bros. Interactive)
8. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Nintendo)
9. Halo 4 (Microsoft)
10. Infamous 2 (Sony Computer Entertainment)
11. Duke Nukem Forever (Take-Two)
12. Star Wars: The Old Republic (Electronic Arts)
13. Tomb Raider (Square Enix)
14. Gears of War 3 (Microsoft)
15. Rage (Bethesda)
16. BioShock Infinite (Take-Two)
17. Super Mario 3D (Nintendo)
18. Resistance 3 (Sony Computer Entertainment)
19. Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary (Microsoft)
20. Street Fighter X Tekken (Capcom)

One last note, I hope developers can take something from this. Games do not NEED multiplayer to sell well. A game can stand alone on singleplayer content, and it can stand tall.
