GDC 2011 Uncut

We have full video's of the Game Developer's Choice Awards, the Pac-Man postmortem, Yu Suzuki's career retrospective and more!

The 2011 Game Developers Conference has come to a close and with that so does GameSpot's coverage of the event. The GameSpot editorial team covered dozens of panels, featuring various industry luminaries who took some time to give their thoughts on game development, its history, and the current state of the gaming industry. While you can find all of our coverage by heading over to the Game Developers Conference event page, our GDC Uncut section is a collection of panels and events that we were allowed to film and bring to you in their entirety. You can view the individual videos by clicking the navigation links to the right or by clicking the links below.

I love uncut videos and I'm grateful to GameSpot for sharing these. If your attention span can't last longer than 5 mins... well, that's your problem and you should do something to improve it ;)

@IcedSalmon "grow up" ? What if someone told you everything you care about like you're family or believe in is a piece of $h!+, And then belittled it saying their toy or videogame is better. Thats what you guys are doing, if you ask me the people who come up with these kinds of titles and (unless they've been living under a rock) know it will a offend ALOT of people need to grow up.

@josecuellar Yeah, EACH video. There's 7 of them... A shame too, because I really wanted to see what was up at the GDC show. Refuse to skim through hours of video to do so however.

@grim0187 It's 3 minutes less than 1 hour

@Giancarlo Well, cut it. It makes it alot better. No one is going to watch 7 hours of video when a 5 minute youtube video can hardly hold anyones attention these days. This is the ADD generation. 10 minute highlight reels from now on. Please.

FYI guys, "Bigger Than Jesus" was the actual name of the GDC panel.

@grim0187 There's a reason why this is called Uncut.

Who is seriously going to sit here and watch 7 hours of video? A quick 10 minute highlight would have been ALOT better.

@Born_Lucky that's interesting.. mind telling me in a pm if you have to, how liberals are hypocrites? i'm actually interested but i don't see what you're talking about other than how they used Jesus in the title. which yeah, is offensive and offends me. i know most gamers nowadays are little scared punks that don't know anything but how to throw crappy insults at people from behind computer screens. nothing seems to hold the level of "sacred" to them, especially God but i can understand that because they constantly affiliate it with a spaghetti monster in heaven and their parents did such a terrible job raising them that they have no tradition in anything... other than the materialism of Christmas, which has also lost all of its original meaning to most people. here come the thumbs down

lol cliffy wants to meet a R* dev. it's weird because they never attend any game shows for some reason :s I mean I don't remember the last time R* attended the E3 to reveal a game. I always wondered why...

So basically these awards were 65% xbox 20% sony 10% pc and 5% nintendo, not fair guys come on, so many other games should have been in these awards, so many others should have won. sigh

It's been known for a long time on Gamespot, that hate speech, and insults against some groups is accepted, but against other groups - it's not. It's called selective outrage - and it's part of the hypocritical philosophy of liberals.

@IdolConverge While it is being used in that way here, it is very insulting to us christians, it is not racist but it is insulting. As if something so Materialistic could be bigger than jesus.

thanks GS, I thought I would have to waste my time digging for these full videos/write-ups. Interesting topics btw (although Yu Suzuki was as crypt as ever: "I think Sega will allow me to make Shenmue 3, i think..." Well duh they would allow you to, its just a matter of will you take them up on that offer. And no the gaming community would sell their babies for the latest installment...

@ KTfreak4Jesus2 Don't you mean religious? Besides, it's just a figure of speech, I don't think it's meant to mean anything other than saying that "it's big".

"The Game Design Challenge 2011: Bigger Than Jesus" I did not like this name. It's kind of a racist thing to say
