Forget your fancy pants virtual reality headsets, your Windows 10, your UI updates and your software patches: E3 is all about the games. Those sweet, sweet video games that we all love, that distract us from the futility of life and, for a few fleeting hours, allow us to live our lives as someone else. Someone else who probably owns a gun, or is incredibly adept at hand-to-hand combat or, in the case of Nintendo games, is pretty nifty with a paint roller.
