VIDEO: The Mythology in and of Games

On the day I die, this will definitely be one of the things I remember.

This, April 13th 2014, was one of the very best days of my life. Very happy to finally post the full video of our PAX East 2014 panel, entitled "The Mythology in and of Games: Why the Legend of Zelda is just as important as the Legend of Beowulf." Some time-markers and highlights for those who need them:

Jonathan Padua starts at 3:16

Thomas May III starts at 18:01

Christopher Yap starts at 33:47

Snake/Big Boss live Cameo: 41:38

Entrusting the Master Sword to the next generation: 52:27

Being able to have the opportunity to put this panel together and see it through to its epic conclusion has been one of the literal highlights of my life.
