E3 Throwback Thursday: A Glimpse At E3's Top Games

As this year's Entertainment Expo draws to a close, there's certainly no doubt about the excitement game enthusiasts feel towards the upcoming 2018-2019 is at it's all time high.

For #ThrowbackThursday, let's take a peek back at the most highly anticipated (and successful!) games from the last five years of E3:
 

Super Mario Odyssey (E3 2017)

When Nintendo announced the return of everyone's favorite plumber would be making the switch to the Switch, fans were a little concerned. That is, until they were left speechless and excited by the brilliant and vibrant visuals, exciting new setting, and a brand new trick up Mario's sleeve.

Er. Or, rather, in his hat.

 

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (E3 2016)

Fans had been awaiting the seventh installation of the Resident Evil franchise for quite sometime, and their unholy prayers were finally answered when Resident Evil 7's disgustingly exciting trailer debuted at E3 2016 with plenty more scares, thrills, and graphics to leave players with plenty of nightmare fuel for the next ten years.

 

Final Fantasy VII Remake (E3 2015)

Final Fantasy remains one of the longest running and popular video game franchises of all time. When Square Enix announced a series of remakes, fans the world over begged for a remake of Final Fantasy VII; what many believe is still the most popular Final Fantasy game to date. At long last, Square Enix dropped the bombshell trailer at 2015's E3, making it one of Enix's most successful Entertainment Expo's. 

 

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (E3 2014)

The fifth installation spun a tale of mystery and intrigue at E3 2014. Fans were reunited with Solid Snake for a somber moment that left many wondering just what Kojima had planned for the latest MGS game that introduced a controversial female companion by the name of Quiet.

 

The Last Of Us (E3 2013)

The Last of Us, with it's provocative storyline, heartracing jump-scares, and beautiful visuals, captured the attention of many at E3 2013, making it one of Naughty Dog's best selling games, and popular series.
