Cosplay bicycle races, celebrity gamer fundraisers and arcade game eateries are just some of the gaming culture innovations that have taken the world by storm in recent years.

Fueled by their love of video games like Super Mario, Sonic and even Final Fantasy, grown-up gamers are celebrating their niche interests through art projects, novelty fashions and even dining concepts that reference their favorite game features and characters. In addition to themed video game bars, restaurants and cafes, gaming culture weddings are also on the rise along with competitive cosplay events that bring together like-minded individuals.

Other favorites include online gaming communities that encourage discussions among fans of particular titles and even imaginary character blogs that feature fan fiction and niche gaming facts.
