E3 2005 Awards Gallery

Welcome to RPGFan's Games of E3 2005. This is a small collection of games that simply wowed us at this year's E3. You'll be able to see impressions from individuals later this month, as well as a staff gallery at what was at the show. For now, read below, and check out what we thought was the cream of the crop, this year.

RPGFan's Games of E3 2005
Overall Game of E3 2005
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is the next step forward in Bethesda Softworks' Elder Scrolls series. A next-generation graphics engine attached to the classic open-ended gameplay provides Oblivion with what will most likely be "instant-classic" status upon release. Bethesda went so far as to visit the University of Maryland Geology Lab, learn how forests came into existence, and built a tool to create the forests for the game. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will see release in Winter 2005 for the PC and Xbox 360.
Computer Game of E3 2005
Hellgate: London Hellgate: London - Bill Roper's a guy who's pretty well known in the gaming world. A former executive at Blizzard Entertainment and Producer of Diablo II, Roper left to form Flagship Studios, developers of Hellgate: London. Hellgate: London is only halfway through its development cycle, but it already manages to beat down games that are completed. The version we played at E3 only had 23 out of a total of 100 weapons and one random cityscape, but it was shaping up to be simply brilliant. Combining the hack-and-slash gameplay of the Diablo series with a First-Person Shooter leaves Hellgate: London as being one of the most desirable games of, unfortunately, 2006.
Console Game of E3 2005
Zelda: Twilight Princess The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - When RPGFan attends E3, we don't have much time to wander around the floor, trying to find games. We attend a lot of interviews, and our time on the show floor is very precious. Some of our staff members waited in the two-hour line to play Zelda: Twilight Princess, and none of them were disappointed. The game features new, more mature, more refined graphics and a much darker quest than Zelda: Wind Waker. With these graphics melded with classic Zelda gameplay and the innovation Nintendo's known for, which can be seen in Link's new capability to fight on horseback or transorm into a wolf, GameCube gamers will be happy to get their paws on Twilight Princess this Winter.
