Birmingham is a great location for any event as it's so darn easy to get to for everyone and as such it means that it becomes a great place to meet up with like minded video games nerds every year. 

This year's EGX event was no exception with plenty of lovely people and loads of lovely video games to play!

Here's my favourite 5 games from this years video games extravaganza that i'm totally excited to buy in 2019!

๐Ÿง  Struggling To Perform In Front Of A Crowd - "My video games performance anxiety…" ๐Ÿง 

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Okay so I struggle to play video games in front of others. An activity that is pretty much second nature to me becomes an anxious experience when I’m in a public place with people I don’t necessarily know.



If I’m playing a game with someone in a local co-op scenario then I’m fine e.g. Pro Evo Soccer Co-Op is one of my fave things to do ever (you gotta love a 4 player co op game on PES!)



If I turn the tables slightly and then go head to head, I invariably crumble…



Why is this the case?

This years EGX Rezzed was another rip roaring affair with so much indie gaming goodness to take in and such a great atmosphere.


Tobacco Dock is a brilliant venue for this highlight in my gaming calendar and I always look forward to visiting its dungeon like underbelly for the awesome leftfield collection and the brick cavern like gaming areas on the first floor to experience more mainstream indie delights.



For me this year there was a highlight of the show that really stood out for me.



It was an awesome talk from Tim Schafer about his video games writing / developing career which was a brilliant way to spend 45 minutes listening to an industry legend’s experiences at Lucas Arts and Double Fine.

Any trip to EGX is a special event for video gamers and this years EGX was no exception.

It actually felt bigger and better this year which sounds cliche but it felt exactly that way this year with all the BIG BOYS being there and the venue just feeling that much more filled out with awesomeness.

Naturally I took a lot of pics in between playing a lot of games.

In my previous EGX article I told you all about the 5 games from EGX that you're not playing right now and now i'm going to shower you with some cool pictures from the UK Video Games Event Of The Year!

The EGX 2017 show was immense. It was bigger and bolder than the others I've been to previously and it seemed like there were enough video games there to keep a small nation occupied for months!

It was my job to wander the hallowed halls of the NEC and delve into the dimly lit corridors of video games in order to unearth some absolute beauties for you to salivate over.

I've come up with 5 awesome video games that you're not playing yet and each one I just know is going to make you wet yourself with excitement...

So without further ado let me introduce you to The Class Acts Of EGX 2017!

☆ Video Games That Caught My Eye At EGX Rezzed 2017 ☆

I love EGX Rezzed, it’s such a cool chilled out video games occasion compared to the behemoth that is the all-conquering EGX in Birmingham!

It’s a great opportunity to try out some awesome new games primarily from the Indie Devs of this world but also from some of the bigger devs that are being attracted to this gamers paradise.


Pang Man was our main man at EGX Rezzed this year but I also got to spend some time at Rezzed and I was bowled over by this year's awesome selection of gaming treats.

On Thursday I took the day off work to check out the Video Games Exhibition known as EGX Rezzed. Located in Tobacco Dock near Wapping in London, it was pretty easy to get to, just a short journey on the DLR.

I was super excited to go. A day of playing new unreleased games, I mean what's not to like!

The sensible thing, of course, would have been for me to plan what I was going to see in some sort of strategic fashion. However, instead, I kind of ambled around trying out video games that caught my eye.

EGX 2016 has been and gone.

4 Days Of Video Gaming Bliss Have Passed.

I was lucky enough to attend this prestigious event as a member of the press and I would love to tell you EVERYTHING that happened BUT that would probably take up around 5000 words.

Instead of that then I will shower you all with pictures of the merriment on offer and give you a flavour of my favourite part of EGX 2016.

EGX Started on Thursday and I am mega excited as I will be visiting on Sunday 25th September armed with my trusty camera, my rucksack and my best games playing fingers and thumbs!

EGX is all about the video games (obviously) so I thought i'd be mega organised and start plotting out my day with the awesome iPhone EGX APP (and for those without iPhone here's the Android EGX APP)

I've just recovered my senses from my very first visit to EGX at the Birmingham NEC and to say I was blown away would be an understatement.

I've been looking forward to my first visit for a long time and ever since I had been accepted for my press passes i'd been marking the days on my retrogaming calendar!

The EGX fairy has been and it's Day 3 of the awesome video games event EGX 2015.

I'm off to Day 4 on Sunday 27th September and it will be my first ever visit to EGX and boy am I excited.

I'll be going there hoping to cover everything that I think Games Freezer readers will want to read about so it should be a busy day and I can't wait to get to the NEC to experience it.

Let's have a look at all the cool things i'm getting excited about which includes my TOP 5 video games that i'm looking forward to playing and probably being crap at....

As I sit here writing this article my head is still spinning from the sheer amount of great games that I got to play at EGX REZZED!

The sheer quality of the games was mind blowing and I had an awesome time trying my hand at some of these great titles aswell as watching others play some of the latest releases.

If you've never been to an EGX event before I would highly recommend it.
