It was the most crowded and wildest New York Game Awards After Party the New York Videogame Critics Circle has ever seen. Thankfully, Photojournalist Nancy J. Parisi was there to chronicle the festivities.
DJ Reznor got the crowd dancing at around 10:30 p.m.
The Goose, who didn’t win any Awards, refused to join in the festivities. Instead, he moped and refused to leave the podium. Maybe next year, honking one, maybe next year.
But the crowd danced on.
