E3 2019 was always going to be an unusual year, with Sony, Activision, and EA all refusing to attend in the normal fashion, but while that seemed to leave the door open for Microsoft to make the biggest splash thats not actually what happened.

According to data from Twitter, provided to The Hollywood Reporter, the most popular conversation piece was Nintendos livestream event on Tuesday, 11 June, which saw the first detailed looks at games such as Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Luigis Mansion 3 and ended with the announcement of a Zelda: Breath Of The Wild sequel.

The second most popular event was Keanu Reeves surprise appearance during the Cyberpunk 2077 portion of Microsofts pre-E3 press conference on Sunday, 9 June. This appeared to overshadow the Project Scarlett and Project xCloud announcements, which werent listed by Twitter as major topics.

In third place was Final Fantasy VII Remake and in fourth Marvels Avengers, both of which were Square Enix titles and clearly justify the decision by the publisher to run their own press conference on the Monday.

The most tweeted about game was not Zelda or Cyberpunk, which had to settle for third and second place respectively, but instead Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons was the fourth most tweeted about game, followed by Marvels Avengers.

The games that drove the most conversation (much of which would presumably have occurred regardless of E3) were Pokémon, Fortnite, Splatoon 2, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Apex Legends.
