10 Short Interviews With The World’s Best Game Makers

10 Short Interviews With The World’s Best Game Makers

Gabe Newell. John Carmack. The creators of Uncharted 2, Scribblenauts, Farmville. Even Penny Arcade. I interviewed a parade of award-winners backstage at the Game Developers Choice Awards. And I wanted to make sure these post-awards interviews were not dull.

We talked about everything from PlayStation Move and Farmville: The Movie to a major sequel that needs a name and Half-Life 2: Episode 3.

And, with each developer (or Penny Arcade person), we talked some Pokemon. Yes, I was consulting with some of gaming’s top minds to prepare myself for a Pokemon challenge that I accepted from a peer of mine at MTV News.

Check out the short video interviews with each of these creators at the links below:

Congratulations to all of the people I interviewed for their Game Developers Choice and Independent Games Festival Awards. And, thank you. I couldn’t have done these backstage interviews without you. Or, if I did, they would have been even more occasionally awkward and definitely less fun and (slightly) newsy.
