I'm sick of the hype over these games because in the case of HL2, it was atleast 1 year too early, and in the case of D3, more like 3 years too early.

I think there should be a rule, game companies should not be able to show off their game at E3, unless it is going to be released THAT year. A game certainly should not win a "best of E3 2003" award, when its not going to be released until 2006.

It's getting ridiculous now. We've seen presentations of a "game", which consisted of 2 rooms, a few models and textures, and running as pre-rendered sequences in 3D studio max and it wins a dozen "best game of the year" awards.

I dont really care, as long as we get them sometime. We have great games always coming out which people really overlook to fill the spaces between the hyped ones. Just look at Max Payne 2 and Freedom Fighters. Games dont need hype to be awesome

hype can ruin a game, but sometimes no hype makes it much better. if i new about max payne 2 a year ago, i prolly wouldn't be as impressed now. i only found out about it around 2 months ago. then i was like "HOLY CRAP!!! GOTTA GET IT GOTTA GET IT GOTTA GET IT". meh...couldn't be bothered typing..
