However, if you want a break from blockbusters - and long queues - then here's five alternative suggestions that are worth checking out.
Perhaps the indie game with the most buzz around it right now, this top-down action title sees you move from room to room in neon-doused, drug-altered '80s settings mowing down sharply-suited gangsters. It's pretty brutal - in both its content and challenge - but it's an absolute must-see. And as a special treat for Eurogamer Expo attendees, there's also an exclusive stage based on Earl's Court, so it's definitely worth a visit.
Acclaimed developer Inversion Software (Uplink, Darwinia, Defcon) is now turning its attention to the management genre, letting players construct their own prison and oversee its inmates. It's a smidge darker than Theme Park, then, but is appealing as it sounds. If you're unfortunate enough to miss out at the Expo, then a Minecraft-style alpha is available now.
Strike Suit Zero
Taking inspiration from fan-favourite shooters like X-Wing and Freespace and the vibrant aesthetics of Homeworld is a space-based shooter with sharp controls, stunning visuals and some tactical mech-based combat. Expect this on PC before the year's end and on Xbox Live Arcade and PSN sometime next year.
The Unfinished Swan
The Unfinished Swan has been knocking around the indie scene for years now, but thanks to Sony it'll see the light of day very soon. Dropped into a seemingly empty world occupied by nothing but white space, players must explore the environment using black paint, revealing a mysterious world around them. Expect it to be available on PSN with Move support sometime next year.
We first discovered Proteus tucked away at Eurogamer's sister expo Rezzed earlier this year. An audio-visual experience where players roam a pixellated island and encounter an assortment of fascinating curiosities, it'll effortlessly transport you away from the hustle and bustle of the busy convention floor. Again, it's available as a beta now if you don't happen to see it at the show.
