E3 2011 - My Top 5 Picks for Game of Show

We all know about the Call Of Dutys, Uncharted's and Gears Of Wars being the stars of E3 this year, But here is my top 5 pick of games which might of just flown under the radar, But could just steal the show.

5 - Rage

Bethesda sure know how to make a game. So when Rage was announced a few years back, many people were curious as to what Rage actually was. It turned out to be an action first person shooter with driving mechanics. The game is set after an asteroid hit the earth in 2038 which prompts you and other survivors to re-populate. No idea yet if there will be any baby making in the game or just shooting people in the face. Either way this game looks very interesting indeed.

4 - Journey

"An exotic adventure with a more serious tone, Journey presents TGC’s unique vision of an online adventure experience. Awakening in an unknown world, the player walks, glides, and flies through a vast and awe-inspiring landscape, while discovering the history of an ancient, mysterious civilization along the way.

Journey’s innovative approach to online play encourages players to explore this environment with strangers who cross their path from time to time. By traveling together, they can re-shape the experience – creating authentic moments they will remember and discuss with other"

Its not often that a game tries something very different form the norm. So when thatgamecompany announced Journey, It felt like a breath of fresh air, Although that gust of air could be sweeping some sand towards your face, as the developers have created a stunning looking desert in which you will roam and investigate. I personally cannot wait to see more of this.

3 - Dead Island

We all like killing Zombies.... Right? Left For Dead, Dead Rising, Blood Drive..... Okay maybe not Blood Drive, But if Techlands Dead Island is anything as good as there now infamous trailer was, Then we could have something real special on our hands. A beautiful open world holiday resort is the scene in which you will decapitate various types of flesh eating zombies, With a range of interesting fire-power and melee weapons.

Dead Zombie girl... Can't go wrong with that.

2 - Battlefield 3

Of course Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 is out this year. So should EA delay Battlefield until the COD series has gone away? No, They are not only trying to beat Call Of Duty, but they are looking to destroy it! After releasing several teaser trailers showing off there brand new Frostbite 2 engine which was simply developed for this game (Even using the animation system for Fifa) It is shaping up to be a destructive force in the Modern combat genre. Call Of Duty have a mammoth fanbase, some fans prefer Battlefield. If Battlefield 3 is anything like EA is saying it is, then a huge majority of people may well jump ship. EA will be showing off B3 multiplayer at there Press Conference so stay tuned!

1 - BioShock Infinate

My number 1 choice for game of show at E3. Irrational Games haven't released to much information about Bioshock Infinate,but its enough to show that this is shaping up to be an incredible experience. Fans of Bioshock will be truly excited that the series has taken a break form the depths of Rapture after the rather lacklustre Bioshock 2 pretty much exhausted what was so great from the first offering. Set on a collapsing air-city called Columbia in 1912, That change couldn't be further from the claustrophobic feel of the deep. The more information released on Bioshock Infinate, the more it shows that this is not just another Bioshock game. This game has a few tricks up its sleeve which will be revealed in its E3 presentation in a few days. Its my number 1 pick for a reason so make sure you do not miss it.
