With the biggest gaming event of 2017 just around the corner, expectations for E3 are huge.
While it seems every game outlet under the sun is releasing their lists of things to look forward to at E3, we decided to take a different approach.
Based on thousands of mentions on Twitter involving expectations for E3 2017 between 13 and 30 May, we found the top games and moments people are talking about most.
The analysis was simple: We took our expectant tweets and used the topic cloud component in Brandwatch Analytics to surface the most common words and phrases being used in this context. We then checked the volume of mentions of each game and moment in the mentions and search component to discover the order.
