“Meet Me at the Arcade” Panel
Location: 1A24
In February 2011, the closing of New York City’s last arcade, Chinatown Fair, marked the end of an era. Not a single coin-operated arcade was left in Manhattan, yet a community of dedicated gamers with no where to go remained. Are arcades a relic from the past? The question was answered with the opening of Next Level, an arcade for gamers by gamers, in Brooklyn. What is the role of arcades now that gaming has shifted to the home console and online play? Panelists Seth Killian (Street Fighter legend, Capcom PR), Henry Cen (co-founder of Next Level arcade), Norman Burgess (longtime Chinatown Fair regular), Jamin Warren (journalist and co-founder of Kill Screen Magazine), and Kurt Vincent (director of the upcoming documentary ARCADE) will discuss the subject, and hold a Q&A. After which a trailer for ARCADE will be premiered.
