Video gaming conventions have been around for a number of decades now, and over the last few years they have been increasing in number. They vary from being specifically for a single game, (i.e. MineCon), to a single publisher’s games (i.e. BlizzCon, QuakeCon), to a variety of entertainment (i.e. ComicCon) to specifically video gaming as a whole (i.e. GamesCom, E3, EGX, PAX). Suffice to say however, times have begun to change. With simply being able to download your games and streamers becoming living advertisements, are they starting to become a dying medium or are they as popular as they have ever been?
