The Escapist's handy guide to every game we saw at E3 2011.

This years' Electronics Entertainment Expo provided a fairly accurate cross section of the gaming industry. Top stories included Nintendo unveiling a new console complete with touchscreen controller and full HD graphics but with another unfortunate name - there will be enough Wii U jokes to last another console cycle. Sony came out with an apology for the PSN outage, and then surprised no one by name dropping the Vita, while Microsoft shoved Kinect down every franchise it could.

But E3 is all about the games, and The Escapist team was able to get their hands on a frightfully impressive number of titles due out over the next year. But with so much information on so many different titles, it can be hard to suss the signal from the noise.

Here is a guide to all of the Games of E3, in general order of anticipation. Everything you need to know about these games is all right here, including trailers, screenshots and links to our editors' more in-depth impressions of each game.

Below is an index of every preview from E3 2011, weighted for importance near the top, but feel free to cycle through all the games The Escapist staff saw last week.

Note: We realize that the handy links in the grid below won't function for some Publisher's Club members, but you should be able to scroll down to read the previews you want. Use the pretty pictures below as a guide to all the games we saw at this year's E3.

Skyrim looks like it's going to be worth shouting about.
