EA surprised everyone last E3 when they revealed Sea of Solitude, a very different game from the ultra-traditional publisher. Developed by German studio Jo-Mei Games, it tells the story of Kay, a young girl lost in an underwater no-man’s-land, which doubles as a metaphor for her own loneliness.

Electronic Arts was the first one out the door this year for E3, but you can’t say very many people were truly looking forward to it. To many gamers today EA represents the worst about the industry that feeds their hobby. When someone says the words “EA press conference,” visions come to find of the most generic bro-game titles around, and crass and greedy loot-box schemes on top of that.
