What is


Players and Continents Meet!

The GIST is not a computer games exhibit. It is a “game” exhibit. Professionals or amateurs, interested in any type of games, will convene under the roof of the GIST.

You could be playing FPS or football games or nostalgic 8-bit games or desktop FRPs. If you wish, you may animate game characters with your Cosplay skills. Come to join us because your seat is already booked up for you. Gaming Istanbul is an exhibit by players for players.
We never leave any games or players behind.
