The edition 2017 was our first attendance as press. If I would have to choose 3 words to describe the event, I would go with: Impressive, Gigantic, Mind-blowing.
We walked more than 15 kilometres per day to be able to see everything and everyone. The Gamescom is for sure the event to attend if you want to have the privilege to try AAA games (FIFA 18, Call of Duty: WWII; Destiny 2, Assassin's Creeds: Origins and so much more) before their release.
Whether you are a gamer willing to try new games (be prepared to queue up though), a professional of the gaming/esports industry willing to make connections and meet, or an enthusiastic cosplayer, Gamescom is the right place for you.
Really satisfied overall, can't wait for the Gamescom 2018!
