They could stay and revel in even more video game joy at IndieCade, the indie game festival in Culver City, just 15 minutes away from the Staples Center. It's a casual, outdoor show featuring tons of new, innovative games on a variety of platforms: PCs, PS4, Vita, Wii U, Oculus Rift, tablets, phones and more. One game takes place with Oculus Rift and a light gun, inside of a human-size hamster ball. It's hard to miss.
But at LAX, the League of Legends fans have missed it. I ask two if they'd ever even heard of IndieCade.
"No," one fan holding a poster of the League of Legends champion Katarina tells me. "I'm not from around here, so I've never heard of it."
His friend, wearing a bright red World Championship shirt, a branded backpack and a Rammus hat, shakes his head. "Nope."
