LOL, true if you count attendees. Not representative for the size of the eu industry though.
7 of the games are made in the EU. Half of these are made in the UK by British companies, mind you. 1 of the games above is a sequel to an American IP, published and developed by the subsidiary of a US based company. This leaves us with 30% of the games up there being built in either Germany, France or Spain by native companies. The remaining ones are North America and UK.
