I went on Saturday. It was crazily busy.
Queued for 50 mins to get 6 mins on FIFA 12
Even worse, why was Skyrim in the Bethesda '18' section? Skyrim is a '15' game. Not that it matters as I couldn't get in any way with the kids in tow.
Oh, and I thought the handling on NFS: The Run in the demo was like driving a truck. Terribly heavy.
A word to the organisers - please try and encourage the vendors to bring more consoles with them so people have to queue for less time. With the number of people there, only having 8 consoles to play on was pretty poor when considering the demand for a AAA title.
For those that went, what did you think? Oh, and where were all the freebies?!

I went and got to play sonic generations, ridge racer unbounded, house of the dead overkill extended cut and starhawk, but couldn't get on anything else. I entered a competition for a trip to san francisco and when i gave the entry in I received an driver san francisco soundtrack on vinyl. Also got a batman arkham city poster. I also went to a demostration of batman arkham city in the gamefest hub showing off gameplay of one of riddlers challenges it was good seeing this game. It was good and I'm looking forward to eurogamer expo now

Would be interested to go again, but maybe to Gamescon or Blizcon.
I went on Friday and tbh it was a bit of a let-down, here’s what i saw with my friend.
Modern Warfare 3: Basically a trailer which everyone has already seen, then we had to cue up again to use one of eight Xbox 360's, I got no interest on playing MW3 on Xbox. People got around 10 mins and most didn’t even get to play.
Battlefield 3: Didn’t get in the cue was nearly 3 hours long.
Fifa 2012: Looks ok, but we watched a penalty shootout, Arsenal vs. Man City, didn’t look overly impressive, neither did the game its self, had some girl there who clearly was reading from a memorised script, didn’t have a clue about football, kept talking about the wrong players, referencing that Belemy still plays for Man City, *****?
Best thing we saw was Prototype 2, release April 24th, i got to shake hands with the vice president of Radical Gaming, but everyone from America is a Vice President lol. The game looks good though.
All in all wasn’t too bad, but we had to pay for parking which was just stupid. £8 *****.
