GDC 2011

GDC 2010 Homepage Hero

The annual Electronic Entertainment Expo may be the biggest, most hype-filled game con of the year, but if you really want to get to the nitty-gritty of gaming, and totally geek-out on a grand scale, it's got to be the annual Game Developers Conference. This morning, GDC's organizers announced a series of panel that is indicative of the passionate geekery of the entire show. They're calling them "Classic Game Postmortems," and the idea is to take legends of the gaming field and have them discuss and dissect some of the greatest older games ever made.

The line-up of speakers reads like a who's-who of the history of gaming itself. We're talking David Crane, Wil Wright, Toru Iwatani, Jordan Mechner, John Romero, Peter Molyneux, Ron Gilbert and more. The talks will cover the making of the games that made the game industry what it is, including Doom, Prince of Persia, Marble Madness, Pac-Man, Pitfall, Populous and more. To say I'm excited about these panels is an understatement. It's a little bit of a dream collection of panelists -- legends, if you will.
