Was Gamescom Opening Night Live Any Good? Poll 1

The main thing Geoff Keighley was doing in the lead-up to his Gamescom Opening Night Live event was tempering fan expectations rather than raising them — a rare change in approach for the host. Although, this is a video game show, so someone out there was still probably expecting to see Half-Life 3 and Bloodborne 2.

The actual announcements — for PS5, PS4 players at least — included Little Nightmares III, new trailers for Black Myth: Wukong and Crimson Desert, and release dates for Tekken 8 and Granblue Fantasy: Relink. A fresh look at the massive Cyberpunk 2077 update coming next month was also shown. For a full list of all PS5, PS4 announcements at the show, click the link.

As always, though, we want to know what you thought of the show. With lowered expectations (hopefully), did you enjoy what Keighley had to offer or were you still left wanting more? Place a vote in our poll and then expand on your thoughts in the comments below.
