My Favorite Moments from #E32015
For gamers, this is one of the most exciting weeks of the year. This is E3 week! Microsoft and their Xbox, Sony and their PlayStation, video game creators and creative studios from around the world come to Las Vegas to show off what they've been working on.
Much of my blog is about personal development, entrepreneur tips and tricks, and tools to help you get your business started. But, this post is all about the awesome games I'm looking forward to over the next twelve months.
I grew up playing games. My first console was the Nintendo Entertainment System, specifically, the one that came with Super Mario Bros., Track and Field, and Duck Hunt all on the same cartridge. I was stomping and shooting my way through video games from the very beginning. Ever since, I've been hooked.
I'm not an Xbox or PlayStation fanboy. I don't discriminate. I believe there is too much great content and too many great games on each console to only have one. So, I always own both.
