8/19! New York Videogame Critics Circle Panel at Play NYC!


By Harold Goldberg

When the New York Videogame Critics Circle began about seven years ago, there really wasn’t much in Manhattan regarding game events. Kill Screen had a paid event, mainly for industry people. NYU’s Game Center began doing some great panels, which continue to this day. And Playcrafting was just a meetup.

Thankfully, we’ve all grown substantially over the years.

So this weekend, we’ll team up with the NYC Game Expo at Terminal 5 to present a  panel at 3:10 pm.

That panel has probably the longest name of any panel ever. Kudos to Playcrafting’s Dan Butchko for letting us keep this insane title:

Journalist Mashup: How to Get Your Games Reviewed By Our Critics, Games of the Year So Far, and All About The New York Videogame Critics Circle.

The brilliant, quick-thinking Sherri Smith from Tom’s Guide will moderate the panel. Our other esteemed panelists include Dan Ackerman from CNET, Jordan Minor from Geek.com and Chris Byrd from The Washington Post.

Expect wit, humor and insightful opinion throughout. I bet you’ll nod in appreciation of their ideas – and occasionally guffaw at their drollness.

The panel itself is open only to industry and the press. (We didn’t know that going in.) But you can see us on the floor as well – where we’ll be happy to meet you!
