James Earl Cox III: The Fun is Over, We Have to Get Serious about Games

Feedback form is now closed.
Players emulate what they play into the community: when games don't take violence and adult topics seriously, they become joke subjects. We need games that encourage players to think and reflect, but it can be hard when the environment fights change. It's time to get serious about games.

Having made over 100 games, James Earl Cox III knows the importance of breaking from established norms for his own sake and for games as a whole. We’ll dive into the ways we all shape the medium, how it shapes us back, and what we can do to continue expanding it and making it a better place. Then, maybe we can add the fun back in :)
