Video game conventions are great... mostly. But every convention has its thorns, which often take the form of snotty, achy, barfy sicknesses. Now that both GDC and PAX East have come to pass, are you a flu-ridden ball of misery? If so, what are your symptoms? Have you caught anything in the past or at other cons?
I've been sick for nearly two weeks. Bluh. But it's made me notice something: the games I play while rotting on my deathbed are really different from my normal fare. Do you game while sick? If so, what do you play when your brain's drowning in fever fog and mucus is leaking from a worrying number of orifices?
People are fun to be around. People are also disgusting — it's not mean, it's true. There's more chance of catching a disease from a human bite than most sewer-dwelling animals, and when upwards of 100,000 of them are gathered in one place, biting is optional. Clean yourselves, PAX attendees!
