Geek Tip: The 25 Ultimate Gamer Vacations

I can't say I've ever been on a gamer vacation, even though I'm usually a "geek on vacation" on any trip. Nevertheless, for those of you who are ultimate gamers and need a fun getaway, Travelhacker compiled a list of some of the best cities, expos and conventions that are guaranteed to satisfy any gamer. Here are a few of my faves:

  • Akihabara, Tokyo — The city of lights, electronics and gadgets galore, Akihabara is known as the "Gamer's Mecca"—being a hot spot for all things techie.
  • World Cyber Games — The World Cyber Games is an international e-sports festival where more than one million visitors come every year. Gamers from all over the world participate in gaming competitions.
  • Fan Expo Canada — Held in Toronto each year, the Fan Expo Canada covers everything from sci-fi, comic book, anime, horror, and gaming genres. Previously named "The Canadian National Comic Book Expo," it is now the largest pop culture convention in Canada.

Check out the full list for more geeky vacation ideas.
