The weird world behind the scenes at Gamescom 2018 – CNET

Gamescom 2018 — Europe’s biggest gaming showcase — is full of important industry news and gaming announcements, but it’s behind the scenes where the fun happens.

A walk around the numerous halls of the German convention will open your eyes to an endless string of bizarre sights that really must be seen to be believed. 

To help, I’ve put together this delightful gallery of some of my favourite things I’ve seen on the show floor this year. 

First up, cosplay. Because, whether professional (as I assume these guys are) or just for fun, there’s always a ton of cosplay when gamers meet up in huge crowds.
