And Dtoid’s PAX Game of the Show nominees are…

So apparently, the Penny Arcade Expo show floor is packed with videogames. Who knew?

Some are better than others, and some of them, well… some of them we think are simply great. We’ve hand-selected six from the latter category, with the only two requirements for qualification: it has to be pretty awesome, and it has to be 100% playable to the attending public. 

But it’s not up to us which of the seven nominees takes the award. We’ll be passing out ballots to everyone from the Destructoid community who is attending PAX. We’ll tally votes and announce the winner after we sleep off our PAX hangovers from this awesome weekend. 

While we won’t be accepting votes from readers who are not attending PAX — if you weren’t at the expo, you couldn’t have played the games — feel free to let your voice be heard in the comments. Hit the jump to see our seven selections.
