The Next 20 Years of Gaming - A Presentation by Don Daglow at Leipzig GC '08

Posted Mon, Aug 25, 2008 by Cody Bye

There are very, very few individuals in the massively multiplayer online gaming industry as experienced as Don Daglow. With 37 years of experience, Daglow brought his experience to the Leipzig Games Convention, where he gave a fantastic presentation on where the future of the industry in heading. Ten Ton Hammer's John "Boomjack" Hoskin documented Daglow's talk and captured the essence the seasoned developer. Of course, if you're unfamiliar with Daglow, make sure you check out our previous interview with him, which focuses on Daglow's previous experiences with online gaming and his work at Stormfront Studios.

Alternatively, what seems to be important today may be embarrassing tomorrow. Don showed slides of the Intellivision versus ATARI console advertisements that compared the graphics of the competition consoles. Will we look back and laugh at the marketing slogans or perhaps even the game mechanics of today in 20 years? Will our children's children puzzle over an archaic title named World of Warcraft?
