GamingPolo Selects the Best of E3

E3 2006 ushers in the next-generation with guns blazing

This year's E3 event at the Los Angeles Convention Center marked the official debut of two consoles (the PS3 and Nintendo's Wii) as well as unveiled the important second-year batch of titles for the Xbox 360. There were highlights and lowlights, but the truth couldn't be denied - 2006 is going to be a banner year for gaming.

The 12th annual Electronic Entertainment Expo didn't exactly adhere to any specific theme, as it featured a wide array of different genres across all platforms. We saw new life breathed into old franchises, new IPs with a ton of promise, and even classic games brought back on new platforms. Innovation seemed to reign on the show floor, with some fascinating entries for the Nintendo Wii and the DS doing new things with gaming that haven't been done before. Even Sony was jumping in on the innovation game, as their new controller for the PS3 was unveiled with gyroscopic capabilities similar to Nintendo's.

Needless to say, E3 2006 was a big show and held a lot of promise for this year. The next-generation hit the show floor in full force, with strong showings for both the Wii and the PS3. Launch titles were unveiled in playable form, and even though most were still less than half complete, they exhibited a lot of polish. Not to say Microsoft didn't have much going for them this year, as the second holiday season of the Xbox 360 will definitely yield some great games.

The GamingPolo crew was present for this year's show, checking out all that the video game industry had to offer, seeing tons of titles and basically taking the sensory overload as best we could without getting nosebleeds. After taking it all in, we've compiled our picks for the best of the best, presenting to you the titles that we foresee as making a big splash over the next year.

So, without further ado, we now present to you GamingPolo's Best of E3 Awards.
