The lights are on
With over 340,000 fans in attendance, Gamescom has grown to be the largest gaming convention in the world. Game Informer's Ben Reeves and Tim Turi were at the show this year and we filmed their adventures on the convention floor. With highlights that include Titanfall and Assassin's Creed IV, the show floor was also host to a wide variety of smells and agoraphobia.
Watch the show floor tour below to get a sense of what it is like to attend Gamescom. We'd like to apologize ahead of time for some bad and bizarre jokes from your tour guides.
Email the author Ben Hanson, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
I always love these videos. They make me insanely jealous.
I shouldn't have laughed at the Elvis thing...but I did :)
" we should turn it on and replicate that scene from Mad Men" haha. I like these.
Tim Turi and Ben Reeves are the best two people for this! They are hilarious! haha
I wish America had a gamescon, or is that what PAX is?
That was some fine, fancy camera work, Hanson. Aside from that, I love the repartee between Ben Reeves and Tim, even if they went above and beyond your promise of "bad and bizarre jokes." More please!
Great Video. Ben needs to be in all like this.
Cool video guys! Thanks!
I'm glad Gamescom has grown so much! Now, we have the "Big 3" video game industry tradeshows - E3, Gamescom and Tokyo Game Show. It's better for gamers all over the world to have so many shows going on in their neck of the woods, and better for gamers in general because we get more announcements throughout the year, instead of everyone jamming up announcements in June because of E3.
Also, great for PAX/PAX East/PAX Australia, huh?
wish i was there
Great video. Soooo many bad jokes. XD
