PAX East 2013 has been determined to be the largest PAX ever - not surprising to anyone who attended the massive gaming culture expo at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center last weekend. Tens of thousands of fans, developers, exhibitors and speakers from all over the world took part in the annual celebration of games that range from tabletops to screens.

More than 40 Massachusetts-based companies, organizations, and institutions were on the show floor this year. There was an amazing concentration of local talent within the Indie Megabooth, an array of area colleges and universities with game development academic programs, and folks displaying everything from hardware to comic books; not to mention the presence of local game makers like Harmonix and Irrational Games.

Helena Fruscio, creative economy industry director for the state, took some time to make this short video featuring many of the local exhibitors. Check it out:
