I didn’t intend to blog about this but I was surprised MBH hasn’t mentioned anything. On Wednesday, there was a lecture about videogames in Khaldiya as part of a videogame contest organized by the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM).
Even though I didn’t take part, I was excited to have a serious briefing about videogame design. I don’t recall the name of the Professor who gave the presentation but here are some blurry phone pictures that I managed to take. :P
The presentation talked about the two basic models to any game: The logic (physics) and the presentation (display). It went on about artificial intelligence (AI), artificial life and how those simulations can benefit scientists. It touched on networks etc..
“Massive Multiplayer Online Games are popular”
I came out of the hall wishing I majored in videogames somehow. :/
