So apparently I'm running a video game panel at conSENSUAL (a new yaoi/yuri 18+ con)? 8D?

This is something I really want to do, actually, but I'm concerned about how to approach the subject. Another person is running an Ace Attorney fandom panel and they've hooked us up suggesting we could run a combined panel into one or as some sort of video games block. I'm not sure if our approaches would be compatible for a single panel--I don't have any love for fandoms that are strong and popular enough to be of mainstream interest to the average congoer to discuss alongside the fearsome juggernaut that is AA. Seriously, I just made a tally of my OTPs (as they are) in my head and if I met myself on a forum I would not stop laughing at myself. (Of course, I'd also think I had amazing taste and I'd offer to buy myself a beer, but I would, wouldn't I?)

I'm going off track here.

I need to figure out what kind of panel I want to run, what I want to say, how to say it in a way that engages the audience, and how I'm going to prepare something like this before panel summaries are due.

Being the fan of obscure shit I am, I'd like to cover video games and genres that normally get skipped over, like non-fandomy games, indie games and mods, things like that.

From what I've seen of the convention websites, it looks like there will be a few non-anime convention regulars attending, so something that doesn't require a knowledge of the greasy inner workings of fandom might be a good way to go...

But really, I am stumped!

The point I'm getting to is, would any of you fine folk have any suggestions? For what subjects to cover, or an approach to take? If any of you have experience running panels (I've been to lots but was only on one, and didn't participate much for various reasons) I would be very interested to hear!

Well if I wasn't going to give up fandom in a bit before I certainly am now because there's no way I'm outdoing this.
