E3 2021 Wrap-up: The best games and the biggest disappointments

We gather to discuss the highs and lows of E2 2021, including the re-reveal of Breath of the Wild 2, plus the Xbox Showcase.
E3 2021 is over, yet you might be wondering if it even began, what with most publishers barely showing up and Sony not taking part at all. This year’s “event” has felt rather weak when compared to previous years, but we’ve still had a number of great-looking games get announced.

In the video above you can listen to me, Alex, Dorrani, and Sherif pick our best games of E3 2021. Do any games from Xbox get a look in? What about the games Nintendo showed off at its E3 Direct? Watch to find out.
We also give our views on the state of E3 and what the biggest disappointments of the event were this year. Did Xbox and Nintendo show enough new games the right way? Is Sony a big loss for the event, and why does Dorrani dislike the Guardians of the Galaxy game so much?

Here’s some lovely Breath of the Wild 2 screenshots

Nintendo has released a batch of screenshots for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, and they are rather lovely.
During the company’s Nintendo E3 2021 Direct yesterday, we were not only given a new look at Breath of the Wild 2, but Nintendo also dropped a nice set of screenshots.
If you missed the trailer, we’ve popped it in below.

The teaser showed off gameplay, which will take players to a new world high above the kingdom of Hyrule.
More information about the game will be revealed in the future, the company said yesterday.
While we aren’t sure what Nintendo is going to call the game, as it’s referring to it as “Sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” we’ll just call it Breath of the Wild 2 for the time being.
It is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2022.
