The PAX East show floor this year is a perfect reflection of how much of a transition period we're in while we wait for the next-gen cycle to start. There are several big name titles on display here, but a lot of the floor this year was dominated by all the indies and smaller titles as they took over half the show:
Out of everything we've seen this weekend, these were our top ten MUST play games of the show:
- The Elder Scrolls Online
- The Last of Us
- Super Time Force
- Shovel Knight
- Metro: Last Light
- Quadrilateral Cowboy
There's way more than just ten games that people need to see here, but these ones definitely shine above the rest. Like with all our PAX awards, the games on display must be playable to the attendees. So while games like Saints Row IV, Watch_Dogs, and more all looked cool, they weren't playable and in most cases all that we saw were presentation videos.
