This year’s E3 could be broken down into two themes: games and the consoles we play them on. While Pamela Horton compared the heavy competitors of the PS4 and Xbox One, she managed to find some time to check out the games. E3 2013 was flooded with more highly anticipated game releases than ever before; with hundreds of titles making their debut it was impossible to check out each and every one (though our Gamer Next Door would have been more than happy to, some of us had to sleep).

But there were a few games that made it onto Pam’s radar like the nostalgic Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD (Wii U), the violent and sexy Bayonetta 2 (Wii U), the highly anticipated Gran Turismo 6 (PS3), the cinematic Beyond Two Souls (PS3), the rebooted franchise Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (PS3) and the newly imagined Call of Duty: Ghosts (Xbox).

If you missed it, check out Pam’s E3 recap.
