Title: Why Does E3 Have A Problem With Me?
Posted: August 17, 2007 (02:59 PM)
I do not understand why E3 chose to close its doors to the public in order to keep the focus on the games. If the games are truly the heart of the convention (which, they are), then the producers could have gotten rid of the glitz and glamor meant solely for the audience (i.e. booth babes) while still letting more of the public in. Even if E3 was never a fully public trade show, there are other (better) ways to place the attention on the games than removing every common person that plays them. For many gamers, E3 was a place to express their love for games, but instead of driving them towards a more mature convention, E3 shut them out. Slamming the doors on a healthy part of gaming culture - popular gaming culture - feels just as overboard as it would to ban all the cosplayers from Comicon because many feel they're immature. I'm sure many journalists feel better that getting through the floorroom is much easier, but there's a vacant feeling that can't be denied, a feeling that no amount of expedience can replace -- people.

Shame I never got a chance to go while I could. Instead, I'll celebrate 18 by buying some menthols that I won't smoke and a stack of nudie mags.
