Phoenix Comicon took place over this past weekend, and it was absolutely jam-packed full of fun things to do and see. Nearly every genre imaginable was represented, but one of the most prevalent was video games.
Several popular video game voice artists were in attendance including Nolan North (Nathan Drake in Uncharted), Troy Baker (Joel in Last of Us), and DC Douglas (Albert Wesker in Resident Evil 5). Cosplayers turned out in droves to represent a spectrum of titles from League of Legends to Fallout and everything in between. Even if folks weren’t in costume, they had fun gaming lounges and freeplay areas to occupy themselves. Check out our gallery of all the ways video games were present at the convention this year.
