On Friday afternoon of PAX there was a panel titled "What We Talk About When We Talk About Games’ Healing Power" and that is a topic that overlaps with so many of our beliefs about the power of our nerdy interests. Thank you to Alexa Ray Corriea, Andrea Rene, Becky Taylor, and Brittney Brombacher for letting us record their panel. Read the panel description and find them all online below.

"In our industry’s storied history, video games have sometimes gotten a bad rap. The violence, the sex, the drugs: sometimes mainstream media only covers the more salacious elements of gaming without knowing the truth—that games are forces of healing and community. With our world thrown into turmoil, it’s more important than ever to remember what games have and can do for us, from accessible escapism for those with disabilities to building everlasting bonds. Join us for an hour of good feels!"
