    I wonder how long it would have continued if the Pandemic didn't happen. That horse has been falling down the hill for a while before it finally skidded to a stop, its bloodless corpse now limp and deflated.

    Who knows if the pandemic didn't happen if E3 would continue at all before 2020 it was starting to decline.The pandemic sure did speedup E3 to die off much quicker though.Beside the fact nintendo,sony and microsoft were starting having there own events why bother with E3 at all.

    When your inside an economy where _____ kind of person would sabatoage a game for making a guide-book ( Phantasy Star II ) abusing the power of the press. Then you have an entire generation of consumers who went to school to make this stuff and just can not get along. ( Work discrimination ).
    What do you think is going to happen? Book clubs, and magazines are still in circulation, and so many other events. You limit people do you think anybody wants to party with you or cares about your party?

    IDK I am just screaming to the wind here. If somebody wanted to they would just impliment the following.

    A. Bringing back Wii Tournoments, with sponsers
    B. Mud Wrestling ( that is a thing ) circuit.
    C. Actually have original one print titles only to be sold and produced for the event. Like in Japan would.
    D. Have a data-swapping meet for people who swaps data in robes.
    E. Keep the Dragon-Con employee mentalities out.

    Good bye Booth Babes.
    Good bye After-parties and or being invited by random strangers in bdsm, goth girls,
    Good bye going to that adult-convention before, after, during E3.
    Good bye taking pictures of people dressed up.
    Good bye making videos, chatting with random game developer ( see creator of DOA, and DK ).
    Good bye reason to travel to ___ part of the nation.

    Honestly we look at covid but think about the people on the west coast who are lining the streets who are drug addicts, to the ones who just fail in life and are homeless for the wrong reasons. There is the reality of that fan base. You grow up and your just seen as a type of consumer ( coke-head addict ) and everybody is so selfish, they ignore the truth. What do you think is going to occur.

    They might as well move the event to another state, and maybe tourist or ideal citizens would move to that place. But no we have to have our Amazon, our Steam or whatever.

    Things already look bad when Capcom removed a forums with tons of user content on it. It shows how little they ( the big-wigs ) care or whoever is in charge. Just like how Adult-Swim games Good-bye letter
    talking truth about the nature of their business.

    Lack of respect what is the point.

    The activists took over and got rid of all the fun stuff a decade ago anyway.
