E3 2008: LittleBigPlanet Lands Best Of Show Honors From X-Play
Everyone in the journalist realm has had the chance to sit back and reflect on E3 2008, and some are stepping up to say which game had the most impressive showing. Well, despite believing that Microsoft had the best conference, X-Play has awarded their Best Game of E3 to...
LittleBigPlanet. Not Resistance 2 and not Gears of War 2, but the promising little cooperative-based platformer from Media Molecule. Adam Sessler and Kevin Pereira were all kinds of excited about LBP, as were many other attendees at this year's E3, and it's a darn good choice. If you haven't had the opportunity yet, make sure to check out the Sony Conference Presentation video, as well as the Developer Walkthrough. Being able to fully customize the entire experience from the ground up - and that includes everything from the characters to the tiniest background detail - is something we've really never seen before, and it's an excellent concept. Factor in that this game should appeal to a very wide audience, plus that it should help to push something like PlayStation Home further into the limelight, and we'd have to applaud X-Play's decision.
Personally, just in what I saw from Resistance 2, I was impressed most by that game's E3 presence, but LBP is a solid choice, too. After everything that you guys have seen from those great videos we got for you, which game do you think tops the E3 2008 list?
