The Los Angeles Convention Center will remain open to gamers until Thursday at 6 p.m., but the bulk of the E3 news we cared about was over and done with before the doors even opened on Tuesday. Press conferences and online briefings from the likes of EA, Bethesda, Sony, Microsoft, Ubisoft and Nintendo had revealed the biggest new games as early as last Saturday and Sunday.

Such is life at the show once known as the Electronic Entertainment Expo. E3 evolves year after year, sometimes growing, sometimes shrinking (and sometimes moving to Santa Monica or Atlanta). And in a year with no real hardware announcements, the show may well be best enjoyed by those who get to stay home and watch the streams in real-time.
