PAX 06

So I spent the weekend in Bellevue, WA with my friend Jason at PAX 06.

We arrived in Bellevue early, having taken a 7am flight out there. We arrived at 9am "fake time", 11am our time, desperate for some lunch. However, nothing was open to serve us lunch, which I found kinda rude seeing as how far we traveled. I felt like a man who had travelled back in time to 1999 and wanted to eat at Chipotle.

The biggest attraction at PAX was by far the lines.

Luckily, we managed to make our own fun. For instance, when a swag slinger's aim went wide and stranded a t-shirt in the rafters, the crowd gleefully met the challenge.

Now, had we been in the forest, with a youth group leader, this would have been a perfectly acceptable exercise in group cooperation. But since we were in the city, a bunch of nerds and utilizing a Final Fantasy sized-replica sword, the "man" showed up and ordered us to cease all cooperation immediately.


Once we finally got in, we immediately took in the large lines. The place was quite simply packed. At first, this was kind of annoying.

But eventually, as we talked to people, we realized that this was the biggest attraction of the place. So many people, so into games. Gamers here, gamers there, gamers lounging, gamers playing card games, and most importantly gamers practicing black magic.

It was at that point it sunk in for me, that I belonged. That I was surrounded by 20k people who don't think video games are a waste of time. I could crack EM frequency jokes, and feel confident that everyone within earshot would be able to appreciate them. Quite simply, for once, possibly for the first time, II was in the fold, and it felt good.

My joy is that of the Diaper fetishist who discovers a yahoo group with thousands of subscribers.

That's not Orko, it's "Black Mage" of FF fame.

And it's called "Fire 3".
