Share.

And the Top 10 Biggest Games by Platform, too.

Now that the annual gathering of the industry’s biggest developers and publishers is firmly in the books, we’re left with a slew quick looks, deep dives, hot takes, and opinions on the best and brightest games shown during E3 2017.

We’ve already announced our winners for IGN’s Best of E3 Awards, given you our take on the 10 most important stories from E3, and collected every article, video, and piece of content from our complete coverage of the show in our E3 2017 IGN Hub. But there’s room for an objective take on the story of E3 2017 straight from our data.

This year we’re giving you a look at IGN’s biggest games based purely on content views on the IGN website and mobile apps in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia, as pulled from Google Analytics the week of E3 2017 (Saturday, June 10 thru Thursday, June 15.)

To add some context to these numbers, EA’s showcase was the first event of the week, debuting Star Wars Battlefront 2 a whole day ahead of the next conference. That head start certainly helped get eyes on the company’s lineup in a considerable window of time without competition.

It’s also interesting to note that some of these games were little more than a teaser or logo like Nintendo’s reveal of Metroid Prime 4. Which, in this context, could indicate a greater interest in the game since there were fewer pieces of content to consume overall.

To give you a better sense of where interest landed by platform, here are the top 10 games for PS4, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo pulled using the same guidelines as above.
