E3 reaction videos have been a staple since the ex-Gametrailer guys (who now formed Easy Allies) started losing their collective s**** during the PlayStation press conference back in 2015.
Yes, we know these videos have been around since, but there’s been quite a resurgence of these for the past few years. So how did 2018 fare in terms of people shouting and speaking non-cohesive words over video games?
Pretty decent, if you’re a millenial who needs validation from others to confirm your decisions. I kid, obviously, because these reactions showcase the genuine love for the medium that can’t be contained. Here are our top picks.
