For our fourth installment of the 12 Days of Geeks-Mas we are bring to you those things that are so near to our hearts. Whether they come in 8 bit or 64, the only word that I have to describe them is JOY…Thats right, we bring you Video Games!
As our website’s resident Noob I thought it would be interesting to write about my first experience at Comic Con. It was something I had never really thought about doing but I’m glad I did. I went to zero panels, I strictly spent my time just wandering around and marveling at everything like a child being let into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. The costumes of course were amazing; you could have spent the entire time just looking at them. I couldn’t believe how nice every single person was that I stopped to ask for a picture of or with. Not one person gave me a hard time, which when you think about is almost unbelievable given the sheer amount of pictures taken and posted on the site. In fact, everybody I dealt with there was incredibly nice and polite. I bet if you asked the other members of the evil geekdom you would get the exact same response.
If you have claustrophobia or dislike large crowds, comic con might not be your thing. There are A LOT of people. You are almost never not in the middle of a massive crowd where you’re constantly stopping for someone to take a picture, or someone hitting you with their book bag as they try to get around you or just being unexpectedly pushed. This really took some getting used to and I think I’d prefer (as would many others I’m sure) the comic cons of yore with significantly fewer people and some breathing room.
