So I'm really hoping that you got off that couch and made your way to the E3 Expo.

By now you should know that video game stocks are a total boon to any portfolio.

But just in case you missed all the fun, here's a quick recap of the biggest things that came out of the conference.

First off, the most explosive news from E3 this year came from Phil Spencer, Microsoft's Executive Gaming President. Spencer revealed that Microsoft is "building a game streaming network to unlock console-quality gaming on ANY device."

The announcement confirms what many had already predicted: that the future of gaming is in streaming, and that it's totally console-free. So say goodbye to that clunky, eye-sore-of-a-console that's cluttering up your living room.

Next-up is Nintendo. The Japanese video game maker's stock bombed shortly after their E3 presentation. Analysts are having a hard time pinpointing what caused the drop, but it could be tied to disappointing Labo sales or to strained relationships with third-party developers.

But if you're playing the long-game on Nintendo, fear not. With three new Pokémon games, a new edition of the cult classic Super Smash Bros, and Fortnite for Switch on the way, Nintendo has done plenty to keep their long-term outlook positive.

In fact, according to Bloomberg data, 20 of the 23 analysts monitoring the stock continue to rate it a buy. And the other 3 have kept it a hold.

Last but not least, E3 was a GREAT reminder that the gaming industry revolves around way more than just games. Publishers aside, there's a whole world of companies to look into.

From Twitch, Amazon's social gaming platform, to Time Warner's Interactive Entertainment-everyone and their grandmothers is in on the gaming craze.

Take headset maker Turtle Beach. Their stock price has skyrocketed a monumental 1100% since the start of 2018. And Turtle Beach is just one example of a company capitalizing on the Fortnite frenzy.

Listen, it's a beautiful, bountiful world of investing opportunities out there-so think outside of the box, and get it on some gaming stocks.
