Carolina Games Summit
by Michael Gonzalez
I did not know what to expect from the Gears of War 3 tournament at the Carolina Games Summit. As I walked up the stairs, I had nothing but flashbacks of the dreams I would have in high school of each classroom transforming into a room with ten TVs displaying my favorite video games.
As I made my way down the hall, I noticed a giant bracket board with the Gears of War logo, the Crimson Omen. I knew this was it. I walked into that room, and it was the most packed room in the house. Everyone had on Gears swag and the players were so intense. Their fans and friends were behind them cheering them on. Some players wanted the lights off and others wanted silence during their matches, but regardless, this was no longer a game; it was what they live and they wanted to show the opposing team that no one can communicate and operate better than them.
