It’s pretty cool and weird to work at an event like PAX and then coming home to watch videos like this one from Gamestop where Danny walks around the Washington State Convention Center high fiving attendees walking by, and recognizing everything in the video. I was less than two minutes in the video when I thought, “Yep, I walked on that exact street that Danny’s on right now.” It’s a little like someone filming a movie in your apartment.
Though, Danny, being the important international journalist that he is, actually walked around the show floor. I did not. Instead, I just managed traffic control. I stood around for eight hours a day. While that sounds miserable, it actually wasn’t. In fact, I enjoyed it. All I did was crack jokes with thousands of video game nerds. How can that amount to a miserable experience?
So watch the video, and enjoy the sights of Seattle. I certainly did.
Update: I couldn’t figure out how to put the video directly into this post, so I annoyingly had to just put in a link.
