First Otakon, I've been to AWA twice and ACen twice.
The size of the con really means nothing to me, I only go to AMV-related stuff anyway.
The size for me doesn't determine how much fun I'm going to have (this year's Katsu is hands down the most fun I've ever had at a con), but to go from Katsucon in 2002 with only some odd hundred people to a convention center with thousands and thousands, on top of endless walking was definitely a moment for me.
I have a friend that's been trying to get me to go to ACen for years now, but I can't really justify the commute with two cons (medium and large) right in my backyard and perfectly spaced apart. I "con" semi-annually to keep the experience fresh and fun. AMV's are definitely a staple of any con I attend though.
