Games: A Historical Perspective

by Mark Cerny

November 30, 2010, 6:30 pm   » 

Video games have changed at a dizzying pace over the last decades, and not just in team size and budget. What is a "good" game? What constitutes "best" practices? What was true yesterday is not necessarily true tomorrow! Mark will speak on the history of the videogame industry -- at least the parts he's seen personally -- and how it informs the future.
Mark Cerny is a diversely accomplished game designer, producer, programmer and technologist, fluent in Japanese and one of the foremost Western experts on the Japanese game market.
