Kind of shocking when the general consensus is that TGS keeps getting worse each year in terms of quality and relevance and that this year was no different.

Actually I'd disagree - 4 Wii U games when we thought we'd get none (Nintendo never allow unreleased hardware to be shown at TGS usually) and plenty of exclusive 3rd party 3DS games!
