Welcome to the Video Games Society!
Currently we meet up on Tuesdays 7-10 pm in HUMSS 127/128.
There's so many things to do at VGS! We host a variety of games including Super Smash Bros WiiU, Call of Duty, Rocket League, and more. We've got plenty to choose from. And if you feel like maybe console gaming isn't your thing, we also have a LAN area for anyone who would like to use their laptops for PC gaming instead.
Currently the society has a Wii U, Wii, Xbox 360, PS4, and PS3 available for anyone to use, but many of our members also bring with them handheld games with them such as Pokemon or Monster Hunter on 3DS so you could always give that a go as well! We also hold occasional tournaments on various competitive games in a variety of genres.
For our Taster session this year, we will be hosting tournaments for Overwatch 1v1 Limited Duel, Smash 4 WiiU Single Elimination 1v1, and Rocket League 1v1. Following this, we'll be heading out on a pub crawl around town! If you don't drink, don't fret - several of our society members also don't, so you won't be alone - you're still welcome to come along for the pub crawl just to chat and get to know everyone!
VGS is a great place to get to know people who are into the same interests as you and so we try to provide a few social gatherings for everyone to get know each other such as going on pub-crawls, hosting gaming quizzes and film nights. We tend to also hold events with other societies with similar interests such as the Anime Society and the GARPS. Feel free to come along to some of our events and taster sessions during welcome week to see what VGS is like. All of our events are free during Freshers so it's a perfect opportunity see what our sessions are like, and to get to know people who enjoy the same interests as you.
To find out more, check out our events section or head over to our Facebook page. Membership is only £7 for the entire year and is well worth the price! To join, just click add to basket on the membership option that is relevant to you. It's located on the top right of our page, just beneath our logo.
Here is just a small selection of the popular console titles we have at VGS:
- Super Smash Bros

We also like to keep up to date with new releases, and so will try to add a few games to our selection once they are released and are within our budget. If there are any games that you love and feel like we should get, we are totally open to any suggestions. Just talk to one of us on the committee and we'll let you know if we can add it to our library. And, if you have a game that you own and would like to play with others at VGS, feel free to bring it along to any of our sessions. We are thinking about going to the MCM London Expo in October this year, so let us know if you are going to be there and we'll come and say hi. Also if you have any questions feel free to ask any of the committee members in person, or post it on our Facebook page. We're always happy to help!
