There are so many great games for one-shots out there these days. I happen to like:
Fiasco - It's an indie game classic at this point. It tells a complete, hilarious story in about two hours of poor planning and big mistakes, in almost any setting you could want. (Currently Kickstarting a 2nd...
I once played a heavily houseruled version of D&D where for some tasks you had to roll a d20 and add your modifier to get higher than a DC (totally normal), for some you had to roll a d20 under the stat in question (fairly common but redundant with the other skill system) and for other tasks you...
When running 3rd edition, I threw out experience and the CR system at the same time. 3rd Ed's CR estimates were useless at the best of times, and we were running a solo gestalt game, so they were even more wrong. I as GM never had any idea if a fight would be a cakewalk or impossibly difficult...

A friend of mine is running a survey about cooperative board games. Maybe you’d like to participate to help give a clearer idea how people feel while playing these sorts of games?
If those are the sort of games you're looking for, you'll find them mostly at Games on Demand. So they wouldn't be in the main event listings. I'm pretty sure several of those were played in GoD in previous years, but I don't know if those specific games will be offered this year. (Games on...
Narcissist, the supplement / sequel to Continuum: Roleplaying in the Yet. It was the game where you were presented with the time travel setting from the perspective of the antagonists of the Continuum game. But since the Continuum are clearly wrong in their beliefs and immoral in their...
