Otakuthon's Video Gaming room is back again, now bigger and better than ever! We've brought back all the old favorites; multiple stations with today's modern consoles running the latest games, both North American and Japanese, retro consoles featuring video games from yesteryear, as well as other video gaming events like our video game tournaments and DDR!
Due to popular demand, we have added even more PC LAN stations, featuring games like League of Legends and Starcraft II, for both casual and tournament play.
So whether you're new to video gaming or have been video gaming for years, everyone is welcome at Otakuthon's Video Gaming Room!
Convention-goers are highly encouraged to BYOC (Bring-Your-Own-Controller). This will make things easier for both the convention and your fellow players.
