I used to love to visit ECTS at Earls Court, I'm not even sure they hold it anymore. But it was a great place to go to see all the upcoming computer games and technologies, and pretend you were with the press and get some free sandwiches..

So much so, it has inspired my own mini-event relating to adventure gaming in December this year. Especially people who like games in the style of Monkey Island and Grim Fandango. It's called AdventureX and I'd welcome you to attend, there is more information at AdventureX website. It's the first one (and the first time I've organised an event) but designer of Discworld Noir will be there to talk and conduct question+answer on Saturday and freeware game creators on Sunday. If you've ever considered making your own adventure games or you're just curious, do come along!

So what gaming shows do you normally attend? Not just UK ones but anywhere. Do any keep you going time and time again, are some really lame? Tell us about them

And if that's not enough, here is a list of other gaming events taking place this year, in the UK:
