What we're about

About our Group

I founded the Video Game Players back in 2011. Back then I just wanted to get out of the house, meet like minded people and maybe make a friend or two. Today we have grown to over 1000 members spanning two meetup groups. We also collaborate with other meetups, and other local gaming organizers. This group is for all types of gamers. No matter your platform or preferred genre. No matter if you are a casual or competitive player. You can come to play or just hang out and talk games. If you love video games, meeting new people, playing online or hanging out with other gamers, this is the meetup for you!

Game Night in Burbank

The Empire Tavern

Hello Video Game Players We are back at The Empire Tavern located in Burbank. I will be bringing the usual suspects Xbox 360, Switch, PS4, Xbox 1 and maybe a few other systems. So come and hang out, play some games & meet other gamers. Parking in front is sparse, however there is parking in the residential area around the corner from the bar. I do not believe there are any restrictions on parking. At this time I am grinding trying to unlock characters in Smash. So if anyone else has it and wants to bring it, just let me know. Also, if you are bringing your Switch, could you please bring your dock as well. As always you are welcome to bring your own controllers just make sure you mark what you bring so you can identify it. BIG P.S.>>>>>>>>> Since The Empire Tavern is opening up its doors to us, at no cost, I ask that you please support this business by buying a drink or some food. Helping them goes a long way in helping the group. Speaking of helping the group there will also be a tip box to help pay for things like batteries etc... Thank you.
