For over 20 years, E3 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo) has served as the A1 event for the video game industry. Every year the biggest names in gaming make their way to downtown Los Angeles to show off their latest and greatest offerings. What’s the next indie sensation? What game will allow me to quit my day job for eSport fame and glory? How does the new Call of Duty play? (There’s always a new Call of Duty). But if you were a fan wanting the answers to these questions, your only option was to rely on the news from the media covering the event. Over the course of its 20 plus years of existence, access to E3 has been strictly limited to those in video game industry—San Diego Comic Con this is not! That industry-only policy, however, changed this year when admission to the expo was opened to the general public. Now, gaming enthusiasts are free to pack the halls of the Los Angeles Convention Center for a chance to demo the hits of tomorrow … after several hours of standing in line, that is.—Chantel Delulio
