PHOTOS: Qatar’s first gaming convention attracts diverse crowd

Throngs of enthusiasts convened yesterday to attend the opening of Qatar’s first gaming extravaganza – the two-day-long IGN convention – at the Qatar National Convention Center.

Organized by T Break Media, the Dubai-based owner of IGN Middle East, the event saw more than one thousand attendees turn up for the first day.

Last night, participants mingled with international celebrities like the Mountain from popular TV drama series Game of Thrones, American voice actor Dave Fennoy of The Walking Dead video game, and professional cosplayer Nadiask.

In Qatar, the culture of gaming has slowly been gaining public traction.
