Sometimes it can be really hard to gauge which company “won” E3. Thanks to statistics about user engagement surrounding certain games, we can sort of get an idea as to which titles were more popular at the trade show. This year, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, God of War, and Battlefield 1 were the games with the highest amount of internet searches at E3 2016. Zelda: Breath of the Wild was also the most-discussed game from E3 2016 on social media.
Even though Zelda was heavily searched, Microsoft still had more attention in general for their press conference. This isn’t very surprising since Nintendo only had a few games to show at E3, whereas Microsoft had a full press conference and officially announced that they are working on a more powerful Xbox called Project Scorpio. Speaking of Microsoft’s press conference, the social media post on that conference also happened to be the post with which fans interacted the most, at least in terms of posts made by an official company.
There are a lot of other games and companies in these lists as well. You can view them in the gallery below to see how your favorite game or studio of E3 2016 performed with Internet engagement!
