    WTF is wrong with you, you forgot about PAX but list these boring POS convetions no one cares about. PAX is a real gaming con

    Thank you for your thoughtful feedback. PAX was not listed because it has long since been sold out, and there’s no reason to mention an upcoming con that can’t be attended by people who didn’t already know about it. That’d be kind of a dick move, and PAX favorite Wil Wheaton probably wouldn’t approve of that.
