    Great first post too, welcome.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    I'd go and see BF3 and Guild Wars 2 then get wasted.

    I clicked on this expecting some kind of combined porn and contact lenses spam.

    There's no way to answer this without knowing what kind of games you like, but I'm heading right for BF3 \o/

    Hello Bonesy, welcome to the site.

    I can't help with your query as I am also a Expo virgin but it's nice to know I wont be alone.
    I'm sure you'll recieve many replies from people in the know and if your really lucky some of them might even be helpful.

    All the best.

    Yeah Guild Wars is a must see for me. Mainly due to the fact it doesn't have a release date yet.

    I will only be going to the Expo in the hope of meeting some of the forum luminaries. The thought of seeing some new games is just an added bonus.

    Not as nice as I used to be

    The bar. Everything else, you'll make your way round and get through it easily I guess.
    The venue's pretty decent, just make a note of where the loos/bars are and look out for a few big overhanging signs to use as points of navigational reference.

    Also, have something to eat before you go in (or nab a sandwich en route); the last few times I've been there they've had food inside (I think it was a Pizza Express among other places) but the prices were absolutely ridiculous.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    Don't! Its a trap!
    Every year people go missing from the Expo and end up in Craigy's Code Dungeon. You've seen Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom? well its like that in Craigy's code dungeon, thousands of teenagers churning out the code for the EG group websites.

    thanks for the warm welcome guys, im definitely gonna check out BF3, the vox pop area (even though i dont know what it is) and im sure i'll meet all the both folks.

    i just read that theres a industry part which is so cool as im working as a junior programmer but i always wanted to know what it takes to be a game programmer, so i guess i thats where ill be.l well that and where the inde games are lol.

    one thing i know im not gonna see it MW3, ive already seen it 4 times in the past 5 years,lol.

    I was going to suggest FluffyTucker's Grotto, but I think you might be too old.

    It is customary to dress in your favourite video games character attire, on your first visit. There is actually a competition with first prize being a PSVita (when released in Europe) for the best “Cosplay Costume” last year the winner was Foreverafternothing dressed as Pikachu.

    I heard if you slap craigy on the back really hard he will buy you a pizza!

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    It has to be cosplaying as Nathan Drake or his lady friend, whatsherface.

    My first expo at earls court, went to one in one of the earlier smaller venues, which was nice. Spent a lot of time in the Modern Warfare booth i seem to recall. Left 4 Dead was very popular that year, although i didnt have a go, i like to watch (oo er)

    also FIFA is fun, sitting around taking on randoms

    Make sure you see Hitman and ask them is there any assassinations in the game!
