The Boston Globe’s Sage Stossel paints a picture in a new editorial cartoon of their visit to PAX East 2023, the East Coast’s most attended gaming event from Penny Arcade and ReedPop.

“Over the course of the multi-day event, more than 100,000 people thronged the space —  many in elaborate, game-inspired costumes.”


“In quieter rooms, discussions unfolded about how gaming culture has evolved, and how it still needs to, and about how gaming culture affects its participants in ways both uplifting and complicated.”
