Help me decide, East vs. South. pros/cons of each
So I've gone to PAX East the last 3 years since I live in New Jersey (and have family in Massachusetts). I'll soon be moving to Arizona though, so PAX South will be the closest to me. I'm wondering though how it compares to East. Honestly I spend the most time roaming around interacting with people, I go to maybe 1 panel the whole weekend if I go to any at all, and I won't wait in line for more than 10 minutes for anything in the expo hall. So I'm not concerned with demoing new unreleased stuff. There is so much released stuff I have never tried in the console/tabletop freeplay areas. So would South be just as enjoyable if I'm mostly looking for large crowds to interact with, finding lots of games in freeplay, and generally trying to avoid lines, or is it so much smaller in scale that people watching and interacting with cosplayers and such won't be nearly as fun as the much bigger East? And not that I plan on going to Prime (if I fly to one it will be where friends/family are) but how does that compare?
