Faster than the speed of light, the viral success of gaming spread like an epidemic on the show floor even before it started. Even superstars like Phil Harrison of Xbox and David Cage (writer-director) of Beyond were not spared.

However, it was the playable games that all gamers wanted to see in the expo.
EGX invaded two floors of Earls Court for the very first time that bewildered all gamers with upcoming games, presentations and a lot of stuff to try.
Among the line-up of games in that treasure trove, the Indie Arcade game called Chroma from Clawhammer Games caught the Editor’s choice award. To make sure that every game was accounted for a poll was created for all gamers and visitors alike to vote for their favorite games during the show.
Without further ado, below is the people’s top 10 game of choice, counting down from the 10th place to the 1st place of Eurogamer 2013. Enjoy and see you all next year!
(Sony/ Guerrilla Games – November 29th release date). Unsurprisingly, Sony’s stand drew the biggest crowds during the show. Why not, they were the first one to display PS4 at EGX. Among their PS4 favorites included are Octodad: Dadliest Catch, Housemarque’s voxel spectacular and Resogun but the one leading the charge is Amsterdam’s Guerilla sci-fi FPS series, Killzone.
9. Forza Motorsport 5
(Microsoft/ Turn 10 Studios – November 22nd release date). This was another glossy and comprehensive racing game of Xbox One’s flagship sim racer. More than its excellent Forza 5’s look and handling, it was the rumble triggers on the Xbox One pad that lead the competition ahead.
8. Batman: Arkham Origins
(Warner Bros. / Warner Bros. Games Montreal – October 25th release date). This popular Batman series was a more aggressive Dark Knight prequel especially having set up in a new studio from London’s Rocksteady to Warner Bros to stay up to the current generation of consoles.
7. Dark Souls 2
(Namco Bandai/ From Software – March 14th 2014 release date). A fabulously attired Dark Souls Knight brought by Namco to EGX that caused some traffic outside the expo. Although, it was just months old, there were some speculations about it but gamers still looked forward to it as one of their top favorites.
6. Beyond: Two Souls
(Sony/ Quantic Dream – October 11th release date). David Cage’s latest interactive drama is another game you can play this weekend. Following the success of its dark serial killer thriller, Heavy Rain, this offered a more ambitious story line and amazing graphics for gamers.
5. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag
(Ubisoft/ Ubisoft Montreal – November 1st release date). A tasty-looking installment of pirate series was another sure hit for gamers. It was the winter’s biggest blockbusters from several releases and it couldn’t be stop like the ocean waters.
4. The Elder Scrolls Online
(Bethesda/ Zenimax Online Studios – Spring 2014 release date). It is a promising massive multiplayer game like World of Warcraft that gamers look forward to. Most especially that PS4 and Xbox One are joining PC, if ever making it the first subscription-based online game bigger than the consoles.
3. Call of Duty: Ghosts
(Activision/ Infinity Ward – November 5th release date). Believe it or not, amidst its latest blockbuster shooter game, it was the awesome dog that the gamers really care about and not the absurdly warfare series.
2. Battlefield 4
(EA/ DICE – November 1st release date). There was a talk in town that says this game would push the next generation consoles in the market. Whether or not it is true, it still took over the second place for people’s military shooter choice of game.
And the top people’s choice award went to Titanfall (Game of the show) from EA/ Respawn Entertainment with release date on spring 2014.
Totally new interface, fast-paced shooting, unexpected twists and a variety of fun factors, beating all the playable games in Eurogamer 2013.
Well that’s it for this year, but we’re sure, just as this year, we wont be disapointed by what’s to come next year!
