Op Ed

War Is Boring - ‘The Witcher 3’ Understands War. Thanks JDreyer.
"Many video games are power fantasies, and most that involve warfare depict the glory of combat and put the player in the lead role. Not so in The Witcher 3. Geralt has his own motivations, and he does his best to avoid politics and the larger conflict between Nilfgaard and the Northern Kingdoms.

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.
"It's a topic that's rarely broached, and during the ensuing discussion a broad array of points were made about how "old" in the game industry is often much younger than you think, and what game makers can do to keep their skills sharp and find new ways to apply them as they grow older.

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 watch it for free now via the official GDC YouTube channel."
