We want to hear your thoughts

Finally, a spare moment to take a breather. It's been nonstop madness since Monday morning, not that I'm complaining -- I adore the energy of E3. Hope you're having fun.

So, which company won this year's show?

Microsoft kicked the week off with a solid press conference featuring games -- The Master Chief Collection, Phantom Dust, Crackdown, and Scalebound, to name a few -- and not much else, as promised. A respectable but not necessarily stellar showing. It helped that Kinect is now optional.

Next was Sony, and while its press briefing went on for far too long as per usual, the games themselves delivered: Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, LittleBigPlanet 3, No Man's Sky. That said, gosh, not much in the way of PS Vita love. Some Gravity Rush 2 would've been nice.

Finally, Nintendo aired its prerecorded Digital Event this morning, which I found to be a nice mix of silliness and fun-looking games. That's all I ever want from Nintendo, anyway. For games, we had Xenoblade Chronicles X, Yoshi's Woolly World, Mario Maker, and talk of a new Zelda. There's also amiibo toys for Smash Bros., Mario Kart 8, and other titles.

Who won? It's a total cop-out, but I'd say we all did.

Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo had new software to get excited about for their respective consoles. We're a customer base with a diverse taste in games, and we're always wanting more -- especially when it comes to "surprise" announcements -- but this has been a good E3. Very good indeed.
