Temple of Geek Editor’s Choice 2017… Best Con

Our choice for Editor’s Choice 2017: Best Con is…. Classic Game Fest!


This convention really blew me away this year. It had a little bit of something for everyone. You like cosplay? Cosplay was represented in full force! You like gaming icons? Classic Game Fest gave us Billy Mitchell and Walter Day! This convention also gave us panels, youtube celebs, Ernest Cline and most importantly games! If you are into gaming and are in the Austin Texas area this July, I recommend this convention. We are proud to award Classic Game Fest as or Con of the Year!

Danniel Slade

Slade started Temple of Geek in 2012 with his friend as a podcast. Since then, it has become a lot more. His obsessions are Transformers, Star Wars, Classic Video Games, Superheroes, and comedies. Slade's life was turned to the Darkside when his father gave him a gift in 1985. He was presented with the leader of the Decepticons, Megatron. Since then, Slade has become a collector of the robots in disguise. The only other thing that comes close to Slade's love of Transformers is Star Wars. He has met a few of the cast over the years. Slade's one goal in life is to meet with George Lucas and just discuss movies with him.
