PAX 10: Day 3 fatigue and favorite games of the show

We came. We played. We drank. We hurt.

After a weekend of proper PAX debauchery there's no better way to wind down the last day than on bean bags, comfortably nerd-piled with people that frequently shower.  In the spirit of Destructoid Discusses, we gathered the surviving members of our galley to reflect on PAX and discuss some of our favorite games and moments of the show just moments before the itis of bacon brownies sent us into a coma.

All jokes aside, our collective was impressed with the breadth of games available on the show floor.  It seemed to us that the indie games scene at the show did very well, as it was constantly as well-trafficked as the AAA titles. It's truly great to see small developers get so much attention at a show. One extreme example: a scantily clad booth professional confessed to me that they had to delete Super Meat Boy from some of the game systems because people kept getting out of other game demos to boot it up. Viral marketing or hardcore fans? I'll leave that one to the Matlocks.

Look for continued PAX 10 coverage throughout the week as more videos are coming your way. Also, swollen feet.  What was your game of the show?
