"Best $2k I Ever Spent!" The Wild, Wonderful Weirdos Of E3

by Alex Gilman · June 8, 2012

The L.A. Convention Center pretty much brings the weird full-time. Adultcon. Anime Expo. The American Academy of Periodontology Annual Convention. But perhaps no event so seamlessly combines blockbuster big business and people who don't get a lot of natural sunlight as the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, the world's biggest* video game trade show, which wrapped up yesterday. Yes, video games are bigger and more popular than ever before, but if you think that means that the people at these shows are conducting themselves with the air of professional businessmen, you might not have looked at the photos just above this text. Because at E3, things are always guaranteed to get a little weird.

*I don't know if this is true but I think probably it is.
