The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences has become increasingly relevant in recent years, with its DICE-based “gaming Oscars” now easily the industry’s most prestigious annual awards ceremony. While the core is always well-rewarded at the event, the AIAS is a over-arching affair, meaning games that don’t involve shooting people in the face are considered “important” as well. Bizarre.
AIAS president Joseph Olin took time out of his busy schedule to chat on social gaming trends, mobile gaming, the emerging 3D market, and how independent developers can differentiate themselves from established studios in the current economic climate.
He also talks a bit about whether games are art or not, which we’ll cover in Part 2. Part 1′s after the break.
