Gamescom is one of the world's largest trade fairs for video games and other interactive media. This year, attendance looks to reach upwards of half a million visitors. But if you’re not able to attend yourself, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of the craziest sights from this year’s show floor.
"That plane is going to land on us and crush us all!" Is not something you want to say in a crowded room, but sometimes you have to learn the hard way
"Can someone help me? I dropped my keyblade on the floor somewhere around here."
Fortnite had a model airplane too ... oh crap, I think someone spotted me
People lined up at the Nintendo booth to play the new Star Fox game ... haha ZING!
Sony was out in full force, advertising Spider-Man with his iconic catchphrase "Be Greater." Ah, who will forget when those epic words came out of Uncle Ben's mouth
People lined up at the Blizzard booth to play a game they could already play at home
I'm really looking forward to this new Sims expansion
That's an impressive green thumb
Here he is, Mr. James Sekiro himself
I can't wait for the third 6 game. (Don't send me any email. It was a joke. I know this is really an ad for Tom Cranston's Rambo Six
The Germans are actually an incredibly nice people
And what would an international games convention be without a stand advertising the Amazon Original program Jack Ryan
Jack's back baby!
A rogue animatronic popped out to shoot at people and I had just enough time to yell, "Watch out." I took this picture instead
This probably sounds like a joke, but Euro Truck Simulator is one of the biggest things in Europe. People take time off work each time a new game comes out. European truck drivers actually use this software to practice for their big truck driving exams. When kids are asked what they want to do when they grow up in Europe they often say that they want to become a professional Euro Truck Simulator developer. But you probably think I'm still joking.
A skate ramp for some reason
I don't know what this is. Someone told me it was a popular game in Europe. I think it might be another trucking simulator
Wait how did that get in here? My secret identity!!
Oh, that's where I parked
The Vodafone booth was so deserted that this guy was able to pickpocket the mannequins
Don't worry, I called some experts. And now it's time for me to call it a night
