Is Boring - ‘The Witcher 3’ Understands War. Thanks JDreyer.
"Many video games are power fantasies, and most that involve warfare

And CD Projekt never depicts war as glorious or fun. Soldiers describe
combat as a lot of boredom and waiting punctuated by moments of frenzied
madness. The Northern War of the The Witcher 3 is all about waiting,
survival and boredom."
Gamasutra - Game dev veterans speak out against game industry ageism.

Everything from becoming a game development educator to crafting games for
new markets (including the small but growing audience of people over 50 who
regularly play video games) was discussed, and if you missed catching it in
person you should definitely
