Though online gaming is a core part of modern videogames, LAN parties, where they bring their PCs to a venue and play over a LAN (local area network), are still a crucial part of the scene. DreamHack has grown year on year to beat its own record over and over as the largest LAN party in the world, with its Winter 2013 event, held between 28 November and 1 December in Sweden, hosting 22,810 visitors. 8,714 of attendees brought their own computers, and they collectively consumed 434 terabytes of internet data over the course of the event.
