San Diego Comic-Con 2014 has officially come and gone, with hundreds of thousands of attendees taking part in the yearly activities. And while comics, movies and TV shows took prominence, there was a large gathering for video games as well, as various panels and events around the convention center kept thousands occupied over the four-day weekend.

In terms of panels, Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham stole the show with the introduction of components from the classic 60’s Batman series, including Adam West, who happily took the stage with other voice actors to discuss the sequel, due for release later this year. Other panels revolving around Sunset Overdrive, Halo, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Assassin’s Creed: Unity also drew crowds.

Devoted game spaces were also a big hit around the show, as both Nintendo and Microsoft hosted game lounges for gamers to drop by and play casually, getting hands-on with forthcoming games for Wii U, 3DS and Xbox One, including Forza Horizon 2, Super Smash Bros. and more. Square Enix hosted a facility a few blocks away alongside Deep Silver, showcasing games coming from both companies in a bar setting.

There were also activities that players could take part in if they wanted to get a piece of the action. 2K Games teamed up with Nerdist Industries to host a Borderlands-themed laser tag arena, as well as a free candy station and an interactive stage. Meanwhile, a few blocks away at the Martin Luther King Jr. Promenade, Ubisoft set up the Assassin’s Creed Experience, where players could check out a demo for the forthcoming Unity game (due this fall), along with an obstacle course and a “leap of faith” station, should they feel compelled to try it in real life.

Indeed, video games continue to play a big part in the yearly San Diego event, and it’ll get even bigger next year.
