I love Origins because it hasn't gotten out of hand the way some other cons have. Everything is accessible to everyone and isn't gated behind huge additional costs. So much of what happens at Origins is player/customer driven, from the impromptu gaming sessions in the open hall, to Morton's List, to midnight games of Are You a Werewolf? I hope that never changes.
My Origins experience started this year before I even left home. Since the theme of this year's con was Super Heroes, I decided to wear my badge from 2009's Hero Con.
