Stiq Figures, August 19 - 25: Favorite convention moments edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter.

So there's this blip on the gaming industry's radar this weekend, PAX Prime 2013, where some people have announced a spiritual successor to Mega Man, others delivered three-dimensional images of two-dimensional objects, and everyone else is generally having fun.

Unfortunately, it seems we have yet to trip into the alternate dimension where Seattle covers the entire globe, so many of us aren't able to join in for the Prime festivities. That's okay, though, because we can just remember our favorite convention events and pretend they're happening right now to make ourselves feel better! For example, the communal wave of euphoria from Zelda fans during the reveal of Twilight Princess was one of my favorite Nintendo E3 moments ever. Gaming conventions are meant to be a celebration of games, and that flooded out cynicism and general snark with a wave of utter excitement.

What are some of your favorite moments from gaming conventions? Were you there, were you watching it via a livestream, or were you young enough to read it from the pages of Nintendo Power? Share them with us in the comments once you check out the recent dip in Japanese hardware sales after the jump!
