Five of the Best is a weekly series about the small details we rush past when we’re playing but which shape a game in our memory for years to come. Details like the way a character jumps or the title screen you load into, or the potions you use and maps you refer back to. We’ve talked about so many in our Five of the Best series so far. But there are always more.
Five of the Best works like this. Various Eurogamer writers will share their memories in the article and then you – probably outraged we didn’t include the thing you’re thinking of – can share the thing you’re thinking of in the comments below. Your collective memory has never failed to amaze us – don’t let that stop now!
This week we’d usually have been arguing about – I’m sorry I mean debating – all the big announcements from E3. True, we had Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal yesterday and it was very exciting, and true, we have a bonanza of PC game events to look forward to this weekend, but it’s not quite the same is it? Covid-19 means the world’s gaming industry couldn’t squash into downtown LA to see Microsoft and Sony reveal their fancy new machines, and the big publishers show their games for them.
