There was a post on Reddit with a picture of a bunch of people at the event. Kind of sad all the try hards saying it's dumb or pathetic. Is it? A bunch of people getting together to have harmless fun and share in a possibly once in a life time event. These are also the people that are supposed to be weebs, nerds, introverts, etc and yet they are gathering with complete strangers to have fun.
Most of Area51 as a game felt balance and responded to the gun better than most similar games.
For a while travel stops still had some shooter arcade games but i think they've given up on it. Usually, it was the Terminator: Salvation shooter or House of the Dead and you quickly got swarmed so I gave up on those fast.
