Overall it was not a fun night. :/
If you encounter a rude Pathfinder GM it might be worth reporting. They ideally want only their best running specials.
I played in the Thursday and Saturday night Pathfinder events and was lucky enough to have two excellent GMs who were both Venture Captains. The Saturday night special was the highlight of the con for me. Last years Saturday night special was my favorite event in ten years of conning because of a truly excellent Pathfinder Society GM (and players).
If you have a bad experience with a Pathfinder GM, please report it. The PFS organized play program is huge, so there's no way for campaign leadership to know every GM. The only way we can weed out the unsuitable ones is if people let us know that they've had bad experiences.
Yeah, I just want to chime in, too, and say that if you have a bad (or good) experience with an event or GM, let us know. Email the details you have to [email protected].
I follow up on every piece of feedback I get.
If there is a complaint, I contact the event organizer and/or GM and ask them what happened.
if there is praise, I share it so they know they were appreciated.
Let us know the good & the bad so we can take action.

MAMS gaming ran an event for the Strange called "Strange Bedfellows." Hands-down the best game I played at the con. They ran multiple tables and provided a great intro to the key recursions that make up the Strange. The game was well written and well coordinated. Four GMs, around 24 players- with players moving between tables-- the execution of the game was no small feat! I will look for events put on by this gaming group in the future!
I enjoyed the Oasai Ruins tremendously, my GM was completely different but he did a great job. I played Undead Wonderland that also had a really good GM. The setting was quite interesting in that 75% of the game was in a restaurant but we all worked together as a group excellently. My first experience in a system called Numenera was not at all what I expected in a game but was quite fun!. All those were in the MAMs gaming room. I also really enjoyed my Eclipse Phase game in which I played the muse to another character (in other words I was an AI with no body and the only physical presence I had was the other character whom I was a 2 year past clone of). That was quite an interesting game and the other guy that played my physical body did an awesome job.
My strangest game this year was a game called the Underseas Olympics. it was a very whimsical game where we played as unicorns. I would have been like ugh, except the other two players were completely into it and did an awesome job roleplay cutesy mermaids. I of course had to play a bad boy Merman :). GenCon was great fun this year.
Also, I should say, I am pretty sure I can talk over ANYONE if I really set my mind to it. Just because I worked hard in the last 20 years to not be the loudest voice in the room doesn't mean that I am unable to be the loudest voice in the room... ::grins::
And Nascrag is about role-playing rather than roll-playing. We're rules light and the adventures are challenging, but also have elements of humor and silliness.
One of our two events is a tournament (scored on role-playing of course), and we've got tons of swag for the people who advance to the final round.
I agree with Nascragman - they run some of the most fun games out there - and you can get in on generics and so forth :)
I mean...anytime you can play a pirate parrot.......
