Sure, you could figure out who won E3 by looking at columns filled with “segmented metrics” and bullshit figures like “purchase intent” and “audience engagement.” But that is only interesting to people who sport pressed collared shirts at work every day. Me, I’m a turtleneck-wearing gams jarnlist, and I don’t give an ass about “data.” For the love of games, I want to hear directly from the people who walked the show floor. Unscientific? Sure, but it’s a hell of a lot more colorful than Suity McNecktie’s pie charts. So here’s a fine selection of random people we talked to at E3 2010, delivering their raw, unbiased opinions of the show to the all-seeing camera. WARNING: more than one F-bomb is dropped, so guard your freakin’ ears.
