PAX West 2019 is shaping up to be a fun show that’s packed with plenty of cool games to check out. There’s going to be some heavy hitters like Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel’s Avengers, but PAX West will also host a number of indie titles looking to leave their mark. Some of the most fun to be had, however, can be found at the panels and community events happening over the course of the show.
In addition to our general coverage of the show, which you can keep track of on our PAX hub page, GameSpot will also host a panel on September 1 focusing on games that left a notable impression on us–despite making a poor first impression on us. Joining editor Michael Higham and video producers Jean-Luc Seipke and Jake Dekker are, Giant Bomb’s Abby Russell, USGamer’s Mike Williams, and freelance writer Ginny Woo, all of which will highlight their dark horse picks. You can find all the panel info you need on the PAX West official site, but here’s the rundown on what our panel is all about:
GameSpot Presents…The Best Games We Thought We Wouldn’t Like
Sunday, September 1, 2019 | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PST | CAT THEATRE
Surprise! It’s your favorite game you thought you’d never touch. Join GameSpot and friends as they unpack why certain games overcame our apparent disdain for a certain genre or style of game. Attendees will have a chance to share their picks as well and convince us it’s the next best game you didn’t know you needed!
