Fantastic Arcade
Fantastic Arcade continues to be one of the coolest, most satisfying gaming events of the year. No other convention that I can think of would ever have a custom Luftrausers arcade cabinet, for example, nor is there an event with such easy, casual access to tons of indie developers.

For those of you unable to make it this year, or those of you who happen to be local but haven't stopped by yet, we've got a gallery of pictures to help you enjoy the event vicariously. If you happen to be organizing next year's E3, we urge you strongly to look in here for inspiration.
