The Future of Game Design

There is a fascinating and funny “future of games” talk from Jesse Schell at the DICE 2010 conference available here:

He talks about about how games are spilling out from consoles into the wider world and where this could be leading.  It is only 20 minutes long but is just packed with thought provoking facts and ideas.  Did you know Farmville has more players than there are Twitter accounts?  Or that some cars now have “grow a virtual plant” game built into their dashboard, that rewards you for careful fuel consumption by growing a flower?

Next time you take a break give it a watch.  If you are at all interested in game design its well worth your time, and he ends with a head-spinning vision of what games will be like in the not-so-distant future.
