DICE 2013: Gabe Newell and J.J. Abrams Debate Movies Vs. Games

by on February 18, 2013

We reported from DICE last week about Gabe Newell and J.J. Abrams partnering on either a Valve based movie or a game based on a Bad Robot idea. That announcement came at the tail end of the panel for which I promised video, and here it is. The fun discussion between Abrams and Newell has the two engaging in a mock debate about storytelling in their respective mediums. The way Newell handles the Valve/Bad Robot team up announcement is pretty priceless.
