About this event

Update: Wizards of the Coast (Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons/Dragons) will have a very special announcement for fans during the NY Game Awards!

Update: Every one who buys a ticket gets a free code for Devolver Digital's hilarious "My Friend Pedro" at the show. All proceeds further our nonprofit work in the community.

Mark your calendars for January 21, 2019 at 8 pm (pre-show: 7:30 pm)! The New York Videogame Critics Circle, a 501c3 non-profit group of 40 multicultural journalists, is delighted to announce the 9th Annual New York Game Awards Ceremony to be held at SVA Theater in Manhattan. Former Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aimé, Our Legend Award Winner, will be honored and he'll make a speech, too. The show celebrates the Best Games and Game Developers in the industry along with the Circle's non-profit work in underserved communities. The Awards will be hosted by Devin Delliquanti from Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah." Daniel Radosh, Emmy Award-winning "Daily Show" senior writer and "Liberty Crossing" executive producer, will craft the comedy as well.

Highlights of the ceremony include the Andrew Yoon Legend Award, which will be presented to the awesome Reggie Fils-Aimé, who helped to change the gaming world with the Wii, the DS and Switch! The fifth annual Best Games Journalism Award, voted on by our 40 critics, will also be presented. A new teen winner of a paid internship from our work with the Bronx's DreamYard Project will be named, too.

"The DreamYard is one of the brightest lights in the poorest Congressional District in the United States," says Goldberg. "The students are thoughtful and whip smart. And we've had top game executives - like Reggie - in to speak about pathways into the world of games. Students have met Hideo Kojima and learned Rockstar Games reps as well."

Celebrity guests, presenters, musical acts and trailer premieres will be announced soon!

"The New York Game Awards are the most for-the-people Awards event in existence," says Harold Goldberg, the author/journalist who founded the New York Game Awards. "There's no other awards show that invites the audience to drink free and party with the Awards winners, celebrity presenters, musicians and our critics afterwards - on the Awards stage itself."

The ticket also includes access to the After Party reception (guests must be 21 to drink). There, you can mingle with the winners, our critics and other attendees. Seating is limited. All ticket donation proceeds will go to the NYVGCC scholarship fund, teen internships, mentoring and honoraria for writing and editing NYGameCritics.com.

The New York Game Awards Scholarship and Mentoring donors include Sony, HyperX, Samsung, MSK, Alienware and Ubisoft, with more to be announced. Keep up to date with our news at NYGameCritics.com and on Twitter @NYVGCC, @NYGameAwards and @HaroldGoldberg.
