Many different types of people attended ESGS and the most that stands out are the cosplayers! From influencers, cosplayers, gamers, enthusiast, and media people came there to join the party!
There were people there that were in costumes to represent their booths and some influencers also dressed up on the occasion. These people gave more life to a very lively booths. They get the attention of people to take photos of them in their respective booths and check out what is happening in the booth.
From PC games like PUBG, DOTA 2, and Overwatch to Mobile games like Lord Of Dice, Mobile Legends, and Everwing. All cosplayers united to give colors to this fantastic event. There were also some celebrities that went to ESGS like Coco Martin, Ryan Bang, and a spectacular performance by Chicosci.
As an avid attendee to this kind of event and attended all ESGS events, I can say I can give this event a thumbs up because of the variety of things that you can experience there from a simple mobile game to a VR experience and lots of people to meet and greet. On the cons I can say that the venue was smaller compared to the previous one’s. It’s either because ASUS was able to occupy the other venue or there were more booths now compared before (which I highly doubt) and the sound system is not that good. There were many booths there that were also doing their own gig and sometimes I cannot here what the main stage is saying because other booths’ sounds is louder than the main stage of ESGS.
Project Horus give this event a 7/10 and hope it will be bigger and better going forward!
