The Goose Was Loose at the 2020 New York Video Game Awards

I’ve been presenting at the New York Game Awards, put on by the New York Video Games Critics Circle, for a few years now and I’ve always recommended folks tune in (or show up!) if they can. But man, this year’s show was really something else. That’s what happens when you not only have a touching tribute to Nintendo President of our Hearts Reggie Fils-Aime, but also a dude in a goose costume harassing Daily Show writers.

So if you missed it, relive the majesty of the 2020 New York Video Game Awards. And keep reading to see who won as well as check out some world premiere trailers.
