Not many games can claim that they stood up to Batman and prevailed, but Guild Wars 2
fought off the Dark Knight and more to win the Editors' Game of the Show at this past weekend's Eurogamer Expo
Competing against such high-profile titles like Battlefield 3
and Batman: Arkham City
, Guild Wars 2
came out as the clear favorite of the editorial staff at Eurogamer. Guild Wars 2
was picked from a field of 10 nominees for its scope and ideas. Eurogamer's Tom Bramwell
handed out the high praise: "It was almost impossible to choose between some of this year's nominees, but Guild Wars 2
eventually won us over with its incredible depth and intelligent new approach to MMO design."
Eurogamer Expo 2011 attracted over 34,500 attendees
, who made up what the show runners claim is the largest audience for the convention yet.
