GDC 2010: Sid Meier To Deliver Game Developer Conference Keynote


Posted March 5, 2010 - By Stephen Johnson

Sid Meier GDCVideo game legend and Civilization creator Sid Meier will deliver the keynote speech at this year's Game Developers Conference. The keynote, entitled "The Psychology of Game Design (Everything You Know Is Wrong.)" will be given on Friday, March 12, between 10:30-11:30 AM

Meier promises to use examples from Civilization Revolution, Pirates!, and other games to "look at how including player psychology as a fundamental part of game design can lead us to some strangely counterintuitive places and save us millions of dollars in time and resources. Along the way we’ll learn why AI’s should not be too smart, how nuclear weapons are like knocking over a chess board, and why gamers can’t be trusted."

G4 will be there all week next week, bringing you everything GDC, from the keynotes, to the panels, to breaking news, interviews and lots of early looks at soon-to-be released blockbuster games.
