The future of videogames
I took a short break from deadly deadly crunch to do something different:
So I did a talk at an IGDA event in Singapore back in December, it is now that I finally got around to trying to recreate it for other people to witness! gasp…
Anyway, it’s all a bit gloom and doom….but yes, the game players will kill the games they love because they won’t realise that their choices of money/convenience will impact the business of development. We usually think that business models are separated from the purity of entertainment, but sadly they are not. People have controlled what we like for as long as there has been media, or people in charge of curating anything – although this is as much about ourselves as it is big corporations destroying stuff.
