Matthew Hawkins moderates the Doomsday in Video Games Panel for the 2009 Doomsday Film Festival & Symposium.
The conversation includes: discussion of games as an art form, realism (or lack thereof) in Apocalyptic games, Japanese vs Western ideas of the end of the world, the denial of death, Christian themes of redemption, the whimsical Japanese interpretation of Zombies, how the Zombie hoards influence the game mechanic, Apocalyptic game endings and the nature of sequels & downloadable content of Fallout 3, escapism & negative feelings of Apocalyptic games and Yoshi. Turns out that yes, even Yoshi is Apocalyptic.
Panelists include: Liel Leibovitz, Joost Van Dreunen, Ryan Savini.
