G-Star is the most important gaming trade show in South Korea. Since it’s first edition in 2005 it always demonstrated that Korean is a nation of gamers, and this year was no different.

Held at BEXCO in Busan between the 10th and the 13th of November, the show drew 289,110 visitors this year, breaking the record previously held by the 2010 edition, that counted 280,000 visitors.

200 companies were present with their stands, focusing mainly on PC MMORPGs produced in Korea. Between them one of the biggest was NCSoft, that presented Lineage Eternal.

The show has been deemed a success despite the overcrowded premises, a problem that should be mitigated next year, after the construction of the BEXCO exhibition area will be completed.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
