Last week E3 2014 came to a close, but it left plenty to be excited for in the near future.  The “Big 3”, Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony, all have their Next Gen systems in consumer hands, so this year was all about proving why you shouldn’t lose faith in their product.  With owners of the Xbox One, Wii U, and Playstation 4 all clamoring for games for their libraries, there are quite a few titles I think you should be on the look out for.  Click on through to see my top games and over a 100 pictures of E3 2014.

TOP 5: 22 JUMP STREET, First Trailer for DUMB AND DUMBER TO, HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2, BIRDMAN Trailer, E3 2014 Coverage

Following on the heels of one of my favorite comedies of the past five years is no small task and yet 22 Jump Street manages to stand toe-to-toe with its hugely successful predecessor at almost every turn. Sure its self-awareness can be heavy-handed at times, but the film’s deconstruction of comedy sequels is refreshingly on point and far more incisive than a summer blockbuster has any right to be. As far as performances go, while Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, and Ice Cube deserve all the praise they receive for carrying the movie, I can’t say enough about how much Jillian Bell brings to the table in every single scene she’s a part of. The former SNL writer is responsible for my biggest laugh of the film which is saying a lot when you consider the consistent laughs that 22 elicits. Add in a near perfect end credits sequence for good measure and the result is the rare sequel that knows exactly what it is, where it came from, and where it wants to go.

We’ll talk more about 22 Jump Street after the jump while the rest of this week’s Top 5 highlights the first trailer for Dumb and Dumber To, interviews for and a review of How to Train Your Dragon 2, the excellent first trailer for director Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s Birdman starring Michael Keaton, and a look at some of the most popular video game trailer premieres from E3 2014. Keep reading for a brief recap and link to each of the above.

Yesterday, we got a slew of new trailers from Microsoft’s Xbox presentation, and now we have even more from what Sony has on tap for PlayStation.  Like Xbox, there are plenty of highly-anticipated sequels such as Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, infamous First Light, and more.  There’s also Destiny, the big, new game from Halo developers Bungie.  And like Microsoft is porting the Halo series to the next-gen, Sony is following suit by bringing The Last of Us to the PlayStation 4 with The Last of Us: Remastered.  But when it comes to new versions of old games, I’m incredibly excited for the Grim Fandango remake, the critically acclaimed PC game that will now be on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

Hit the jump to check out the Uncharted 4 trailer and many more.

Microsoft just wrapped their E3 2014 presentation, which means they had plenty of trailers on hand for some of their hottest upcoming games.  They had annual franchises (Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Assassins Creed: Unity), highly anticipated sequels (Rise of the Tomb Raider, Crackdown), and many more.  For me, the best game of the presentation was Sunset Overdrive, which was bright, colorful, goofy, and looks like it has a sense of humor. Hit the jump to check out the new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare trailer and many more.
