PostE3 conferences in graph form
by Monkey Man » Sat Jun 14, 2014 3:03 pm

Neogaf member timetokill made some interesting graphs about the 3 main conferences -

Image
Pretty self-explanatory, I separated the games into release year categories and this is what came out.

Image
A game was "being shown" if there was footage of a game, even if it was interspliced with cuts to the creators talking about the game, showing stuff on their PCs about the game, etc. I didn't cut down to the second of "gameplay on screen" vs "no gameplay on screen" because that would've been tedious. It was more of a "showing game now" vs "talking, introducing people, segues, etc."

Image
This was how games were revealed or discussed at the shows. If they showed gameplay or even simulated gameplay, it went in the gameplay category. If they showed only cutscenes or straight-up CG, it went in the "nothing like gameplay" category. Talking was when they just mentioned a game, and possibly a logo or concept art, with nothing to show for it.

Image
Each game had a "type" associated with it, including whether shooting was a main or primary mechanic. I put together these graphs to show if a game's gameplay was primarily "about" shooting or about something else.

Image
And finally, exclusivity of games to the platform. I tried to be accurate but I'm sure there will be a game or two that is actually multiplat when I though it was exclusive or visa-versa.

Nintendo had three shooting games? That is surprising.

Does Splatoon count as a shooting game?

Yeah...

Actually I've just been through the games...they don't. The only shooter they showed in the Digital Event was Splatoon.

But it wasn't shown at the Digital Event (and neither was Devil's Third).

Star Fox wasn't even at E3 this year.

Are there stats for CG trailers? MS went way over the top with that this year.
