Sometimes game teasers are hard to handle, and it can be a while before you get your hands on a particular game.
And then there are those times when you spend a good chunk of the day just waiting around.
But at least you've got guys like the one above to keep things interesting.
Or statues with which to pose, so you can show all your Facebook friends how much fun you had at the conference!
Just watch out for those giant monsters, especially if you're a little jumpy.
Gamers occasionally have a reputation of being loners, but they were mostly friendly and social, and weren't afraid to crack a few jokes here and there.
It was also fun to pose with costumed enthusiasts, as long as you were willing to wait in line for the opportunity.
Sometimes it's easy to feel like all you ever do is wait.
