The Winners List From The 8th Annual New York Videogame Awards

Last week in New York City, Daniel Radosh, Kat Radley, and Josh Johnson (Emmy Award-winning writers from The Daily Show with Trevor Noah) hosted the 8th Annual New York Videogame Awards at SVA Theatre. This yearly ceremony, created by the NYC Game Critics Circle, celebrates the most innovative and exciting games in the industry and the proceeds from ticket sales contribute to a non- profit organization that provides mentoring, scholarships, and workshops in around the City.

The New York Videogame Awards is a hugely popular event; viewed live by over 400,000 fans on Twitch.  As Harold Goldberg, Critics Circle president and founder, says, “The New York Game Awards are the most for-the-people Awards event in existence. There are no other awards show that invites the audience to drink free and party with the Awards winners, celebrity presenters, musicians, and our critics afterward – on the Awards stage itself.”
