Action-packed 'Brink' wins Eurogamer Expo's Game of the Show

European gaming website Eurogamer have crowned Brink as their Eurogamer Expo 2010 Game of the Show, following an exit poll returned by attendees of the October 1-3 event.

Not due out until spring of 2011, Brink was in such high demand that some of the Expo's 20,000 visitors queued for over two hours in order to have a quick go.

Set aboard a floating city where two sides battle for scarce resources, the game crosses the smooth athletic style of parkour with the gun-toting action of a first-person shooter.

Interest had started to build long before after Splash Damage studio boss Paul Wedgewood gave a series of keynote talks at London's 2009 Eurogamer Expo.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood also proved popular, with several banks of machines giving punters a taste of the game's intriguing cat-and-mouse multiplayer.

Third-placed Killzone 3 was tucked away in an age-restricted area, where players and onlookers could see how the game looked on 3D TVs, and try out one of the sci-fi shooter's snowy levels.

The fights and frights of Gears of War 3 and Dead Space 2 impressed, while the altogether more family-friendly LittleBigPlanet 2 was a crowd favorite chock full of creativity and invention.

The visceral and vulgar Bulletstorm generated a buzz, the long-awaited racing game Gran Turismo 5 took 9th, and Fallout: New Vegas' only problem seemed to be that it was a little too engrossing with so many other titles demanding attention.
