Despite it's size, PAX East is way more relax as a con. The crowd is older, so you don't get a lot meme screaming children, and the cosplay scene is at maybe a 1/4th of the attendees. It's very much more about the programming and games than it is standing around posing for photos.

That being said, you also need to stay on top of shit. I waited in line for about 2 hours for both the Mass Effect and the Gearbox panels. Was it worth it? YUP. Do you need to do it for any of the big games/panel. YUP.
Stalk me on twitter! @theanarchris, THEN IMMEDIATELY REGRET YOUR DECISION!
