Gaming Conventions

Postby Turnip » Sat Apr 07, 2018 9:16 am

With PAX East happening this week, I thought this would be a good idea for a topic.

Here you can discuss Gaming Conventions and Gaming Convention related things.

How do you feel about them? Have you ever attended one, and if so - what did you think about it? Have a particularly memorable moment from a convention that you want to share? Any questions about them?

I would go to one if I could, that would be interesting. Unfortunately, I can't seem to convince my parents to go to one, and there are also some mental barriers that I am not comfortable explaining.
Don't expect me to post here often, if at all.

I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure that this isn't supposed to happen.

Not necessarily a gaming convention, but I went to London MCM Comic Con about 6 years ago and it was exactly as you'd expect - nerds everywhere, overpriced stuff for sale and people taking pictures with cosplayers.

That's pretty much my experience at PAX East. It's a fun convention sure, but I can't deny that it's basically nerd nirvana.
