E3 2017 Best of Show

E3 2017 has now come and gone. Here at CVGame, and our Parents Press Play Podcast, we have seen a ton of great content coming in the form of sequels and prequels. At the same time, we have also seen a rise in a lot of new IP. After spending a week in Los Angeles to see the best that the game industry has to offer, I have selected my E3 2017 Best of Show.

First, a little bit about these awards. I don’t name an Overall Best of Show award and haven’t done that for many years. Instead, I list games in no particular order. These titles are what I find to be especially unique and interesting based on my extensive experience in the industry and personal tastes.
