The games which stole the show.
That's right, kids! The time of year when we knock our heads together and decide which games stole the show at E3 has arrived. This year we had particular trouble deciding not only on an overall winner, but on a top ten. We saw literally hundreds of games last week, some hands-off and some hands-on, some while wearing 3D glasses and some that didn't need 3D glasses, some with a motion controller and some without a controller at all. Now we've had some time to digest them all (and get over our jetlag), we've come to a decision. Bam.
10. Child of Eden, Xbox 360, PS3 - Q Entertainment, Ubisoft - Out Q1 2011
In the midst of all the Wii Sports clones, yoga trainers and dance titles, one Kinect game managed to grab our attention more than any other at this year's E3. That game was Child of Eden, the brainchild of the man behind Lumines, Space Channel 5 and Rez, namely Tetsuya Mizuguchi, The pedigree alone is enough to warrant attention, but watching Mizuguchi shoot abstract shapes in time to a funky beat live at the Ubisoft press conference was truly a sight to behold.
