Microsoft’s conference drew a majority of the 76,386 votes placed, garnering 56.4% of the votes. Nintendo’s followed in second with 33.8% for its annual Nintendo Direct.

Ubisoft was also included in the poll, drawing 4.1% of votes. A fourth option titled “Something Else (Tell Us!)” garnered 5.7% of votes, inspiring responses citing other events like Devolver Digital’s showcase and Take-Two Interactive’s presentation discussing diversity in the video game industry.

Bethesda took the lead during the Xbox showcase, revealing a deeper look at Starfield and setting a November 11, 2022 release date for the Xbox exclusive. After that, Microsoft returned to some of its biggest franchises, revealing multiplayer footage of Halo Infinite and announcing the Mexico-set Forza Horizon 5. Both titles are set to release later this year.
