Battlefield 1 and Yooka-Laylee awarded Games of Show by EGX attendees

They had a good Brum.

EGX, the UK's biggest gaming show, has announced that Battlefield 1 was voted Game of the Show by attendees, beating out big-hitters Dishonored 2 and Final Fantasy 15.

Over 75,000 people and 150 exhibitors attended this year's show, which took place at the Birmingham NEC in September. (EGX is owned by our parent company Gamer Network, but is run separately from this website. We did lend them Chris Bratt to talk to people about strategy games, though, and Aoife had a moment because there were chocobos.)
