Of all the great trailers to come out of this year’s E3 I’m most excited over the news of a Mad Max game, and a new Star Wars Battlefront.

Mad Max was ahead of its time really.  No, seriously, hear me out.  It was post-apocalyptic before post-apocalyptic was cool.  They’re great films that certainly hold their own against anything made today.  It is a series that has always deserved a good game.  Perhaps the time was just never right.  Maybe the technology wasn’t available to do the movies justice in a way that would elevate them above even themselves.  I certainly hope this is that game.

 

As for a new Star Wars Battlefront, I am so excited about this release that if it was proprietary to either new console I’d buy that system solely because of this game.  The Battlefront games have always been some of my favorite.  They were such exceptionally fun games that it is criminal we’ve had to wait as long as we have for a new installment.  Even though the trailer is just a tease, all I need to know is that it is being made by the same folks who make the Battlefield series of games.  I won’t even begin to gush about them…
