Why does Blizzard hold a yearly event to talk about its 3 played out IPs?

Because an absurd amount of people go every year and enjoy it and they like the money.

Why does Minecraft have it's own convention just for one game.

It's just that popular

They are popular enough to warrant an event....


This...Blizzard is undoubtedly the most popular developer working on the PC, and synonymous with "PC Gaming" for many people.

My friend attends every year.....he went dressed up as one of the blue's brothers last year. he works from home and hasn't ever had a girlfriend and never leaves his house except to buy food.....also he has a cat. he is 29 years old.

Those are the type of people that go to it.


It sounds like he should have more discretion when it comes to friends, preferably ones that won't post general details of his personal life on random forums. I'm guessing you have plenty of problems in your own life if you build yourself up by mocking others.

Yes, because EVERY person who games primarily on a PC has the exact same taste/interests/social skills etc. - you see how idiotic that sounds? Also the statement is more than a little ironic given your sig.
