If you missed the BAFTA Games Question Time livestream today, you might like to check out the video available on their website. It's a panel discussion between BAFTA Video Game Award nominees, featuring questions from the audience (including the internet audience).

Participants are:
  • Dan Connors - CEO, director, co-founder, Telltale Games, nominated for The Walking Dead
  • Barry Meade - Co-founder and director, Fireproof Studios Ltd, nominated for The Room
  • Jessica Curry - Composer and co-director, thechineseroom, nominated for Dear Esther
  • Mike Bithell - Creator and game designer, nominated for Thomas Was Alone
Some great subjects came up during the discussion, including story vs gameplay, video games as experiential art, and why devs are often quiet about projects in the pipeline. Definitely an interesting mix of opinions!

  • I wish there was a transcript.
  • It was an interesting watch. And it's also one of those things that makes me want to live in London as I saw tickets on sale for this for £5, I think. Would totally have gone had I been down there.

    We sent a bunch of people over there for the ceremony tomorrow night... organising the travel made me kinda homesick for London! It's a great place to live.
  • Any chance someone could make an executive summary of the most important points, for those of us who don't have a spare hour and a half to watch it?
  • i think the problem with talking about games is that there is more than one type of game and more than one type of experience that games give you by playing, like the gameplay Vs story argument, it just depends on the game
