Lecture at the Game Developers' Conference
This was, sadly, the shortest visit I've ever paid to the GDC. I was only able to be there two days. Family business kept me away during the two tutorial days, and on the third day of the conference I had to rush off to my next event. It was great to see old friends as always, and fun to be in San Francisco for a change.
I only made it to two sessions other than my own: a round table discussion on sex in games, moderated by Brenda Brathwaite, the lead designer on Playboy: The Mansion; and the Experimental Gameplay Workshop
Apart from that, it was the usual round of meetings, parties, dinners, and of course the Game Developers' Choice Awards and Indepdendent Game Festival Awards -- two events that I believe are increasingly important to the game industry.
