Myself? I'd be too embarrassed to be seen with either group.
May appear that way from a distance, but up close the Game Con peep did not have a sense of humor about it. On the contrary, they were serious to the point of being defensive. While I was snapping shots on the street there were two of them standing next to me and each time someone walked by and asked, "who are you?" they replied cynically, "I'm myself!" Reality and fantasy converged for them that night, at least until they made the decision to take the elevator instead of the stairs to their Hilton Queen suite.
