2020 was a year somewhat shaken by bad news. Bad news that obviously affected our favorite media, namely, video games. Indeed, due to the global pandemic, many video game fairs have closed their doors to protect thousands of participants. This is also the case for E3 2020, which was canceled several weeks ago already. Today, to fill this void, Geoff Keighley unveils the Summer Game Fest!
