Insert Quarter to Begin…

This weekend over 6,000 people headed to the National Harbor to take part in the annual event known as Mag Fest.  Mag Fest is a gathering of video gamers, tabletop players, movie buffs, and RPG’ers.  Mag Fest runs from Thursday to Sunday, 24 hours a day, nonstop.  Some might call them nerds or geeks, but I would just call them like-minded people enjoying what they like to do in their free time.

Now whip it

Into shape

Shape it up

Get straight

Go forward

Move ahead

Try to detect it

It’s not too late

To whip it

Whip it good

Dance Dance  Revolution was a crowd favorite.

Must keep gaming…..

What looks like a normal racing simulator…

Was in a minivan.

On top of all the gaming there were concerts where bands played songs from popular video games.

The biggest concert was the band, Earthbound Papas.  Popular because band member, Nobuo Uematsu is the composer for all the Final Fantasy video games. The Final Fantasy video game series has sold over 100 million copies, so it is kind of a big deal.

And still more gaming…

On my way to grab a bite to eat one night I saw this family eatting dinner. Not very exciting I know.  What grabbed my attention was that they were all watching TV instead of talking to one another.

I will end with one of my favorite photos from the weekend.
