We asked: If gamescom were a game character or a superhero, how would he/she look like? What would his/her hidden super power be?

And you answered with all your creativity: We received over 430 submissions with characters ranging from fluffy superanimals, muscular fighters to manga superwomen. Our top-class jury consisting of Oskar Pannier, the Blitz, Nino Kerl, Maja Felicitas and Salome Soe Gschwind-Penski chose their Top 16.
