Hollywood may get all the headlines at San Diego Comic Con (SDCC), with the influx of stars from television and film that make the short commute south to the annual pop culture convention, but this year attendees have more interactive attractions and video games than ever before. Video Games: The Movie will have multiple screenings at the show. This year’s convention has also seen a first-time explosion of Oculus Rift virtual reality experiences that tie into movies such as Pacific Rim, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Into the Storm and TV shows like Sleepy Hollow.

The Walking Dead Experience is back at PetCo Park, right next to the Borderlands 2: The Pre Sequel laser tag set-up. And Sega has set up all of its games, including the Sonic Boom titles and Alien Isolation at Nerd HQ, also at Petco Park. Ubisoft has brought its Assassin’s Creed video game experience to life with a parkour experience that tests gamers’ real-world skills. But for traditional interactivity, nothing beats video games. Games are everywhere in downtown San Diego, both inside the convention center and throughout the area, as game makers give fanboys and fangirls their first hands-on opportunities. Here are five titles showcased at Comic Con that gamers will find worth taking a look at once they’re released.
