DEBATE AT LOLITA BAR: "Will Videogames Become More Important Than Movies?"

War of the Worlds or Halo 2, that is the question. Or rather: “Will Videogames Become More Important Than Movies?” Find out next week when Charles Herold (game reviewer for the New York Times) debates Scott Nybakken (former film critic for New York Press and the Seattle Stranger). Michel “The Brain” Evanchik will moderate and Todd Seavey will host.

It happens Wednesday, July 6, 8pm, at Lolita bar on the northeast corner of Broome and Allen on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, one block south and three west of the Delancey Street subway stop (free admission, cash bar).

Feel free to suggest topics or volunteer as a debater for future Jinx Athenaeum Society meetings.

For those who can’t make it, here’s a glimpse, noticed by The Brain, of the videogame-dominated future some fear:
