New York Game Awards 2022 Nominees Formally Announced

Every year brings numerous exciting new games to fans, and with those games comes the New York Game Awards from the New York Videogame Critics Circle to show the best in gaming for the year.

The New York Videogame Critics Circle (NYVGCC) is a renowned organization founded in 2011 by Harold Goldberg of the Washington Post that aims to bring the best the journalism world has to offer the videogame world, while advocating for multiculturalism and helping the underprivileged. Goldberg says “We want to help, we need to give back, and we’re very serious about that mission,” in being advocates for a greater message in gaming.

Every year this prestigious non-profit group holds a New York Game Awards show that aims to embrace and expand on that message, by not only celebrating the very best the game world had to offer in the year prior, but celebrating the people that brought the games to fans.

President of NYVGCC Harold Goldberg also stated, “We really wanted to present our fans with a live show this year. However, for health and safety reasons, we are offering a virtual only show again in 2022. We are still absolutely thrilled about having the honour of acknowledging all the incredible work from developers and journalists in 2021.”

He went on to say, “In addition to the list of nominees, we’re still hopeful that many will buy tickets to support our ongoing mission to provide awareness and mentorship for the video game industry, especially among underserved communities,” showing the sheer breadth of their mission to reach larger audiences.
