Tokyo Game Show 2018: Games and models

Business Day for the Tokyo Game Show 2018 was huge. As I’ve written in previous articles, I play computer games of the PC type. I owned an Xbox many years ago, but not a PlayStation or Nintendo. Console games are right out of my league. Still, I attended it and spent a lot of time walking around, taking pictures of models and displays. And I watched a few people play games and a couple of stage events. It was great photography.

What was my photo gear for this event?

  • Camera body: Fujifilm X-T2
  • Lens: Fujifilm XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR
  • Flash: Godox V860II

How was the Tokyo Game Show 2018 experience?

To start, there were two PC games I enjoyed looking at, both on Hewlett Packard Omen machines. The first was Dead or Alive 6, and the other was Forza Horizon 4. They looked amazing! I wanted to try them, but I didn’t have time to wait as the lines were long.

Something I loved was a display put up by a vocational school, Nihon Kogakuin (日本工学院). The students put together some virtual reality games, one of which I played! The name of it was Gray. It was a horror-survival game situated in an abandoned medical facility. Unfortunately, you had only a flashlight. And that meant if you ran into any undead in the game, you ended up as their meal, unfortunately. I thought it was brilliant and enjoyed my short turn.

I noticed 2018 had a lot of old-school 2D side-scrolling games. Some of them, including Dragon Marked for Death for the Nintendo system, looked fun. There were quite a few other games of the type there, very noticeable and pulling good crowds.

The only thing that disappointed me at Tokyo Game Show 2018 was World of Tanks/ They weren’t there! At least I didn’t see them. Hopefully, they will return one day.

Wrapping up

Tokyo Game Show 2018 was nothing short of exhilarating. Despite being a casual PC gamer, I found myself immersed in the event’s atmosphere. Armed with my trusty Fujifilm X-T2 camera, I ventured through bustling halls. There I photographed intricate models, amazing booths, and beautiful models.

The array of PC games showcased at the event left me in awe, particularly Dead or Alive 6 and Forza Horizon 4. I lamented not being able to test them firsthand due to lengthy queues. But the visual spectacle they presented was enough to leave a lasting impression.

Overall, the Tokyo Game Show 2018 surpassed my expectations. It offered a glimpse into the world of gaming. It also provided opportunities for exploration, discovery, and, of course, great photography. As I reflect on the event, I’m reminded of the creativity, innovation, and passion that define this it. It left me anticipating the adventures that await at future conventions.
