Thousands came out to the Playthrough Gaming Convention in Raleigh, North Carolina for the fifth edition of the event after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19. Over 5,000 people were in attendance for what event co-founder, Tim Howell, deemed a massive success.
“The pandemic gave people an opportunity to explore gaming in a way because none of us could leave,” said Howell. “So a lot of people got into gaming. So we have both old passionate fans and new fans that are coming together for the first time here and it’s really fun to watch.”
Howell said the event gives gamers all around North Carolina an opportunity to meet others who share similar interests. He also said it gives students in college, who study gaming development, an opportunity to show their skills.
The two-day event took place at the Raleigh Convention Center.
