BAFTA Games Question Time: Women in Games

Video: Broadcaster Jonathan Ross on the evolution of acceptance in video game culture

At a sell-out event in London last week, BAFTA and GamesIndustry International held Games Questions Time, a public forum aimed at shedding light on the continued success of the video games industry.

Presented by Eurogamer's Ellie Gibson, the panel consisted of broadcaster Jonathan Ross, Torsten Reil of CSR Racing publisher Natural Motion, Sports Interactive's Miles Jacobson and Lego Star Wars publisher TT Games' Tom Stone.

In the second short video of the event published today, Ross discusses the objectification of characters, games culture finding its own natural levels of acceptance, and parallels with writing for the movie business.

Yesterday's video, tackling the free versus paid debate, can be seen here.

More videos from the BAFTA Guru series can be viewed here.

Any reason why we can't watch the video of the entire event?
BAFTA have the whole video hosted on YouTube and then bafflingly decided to flag it as 'Private' ?!

Yep, I'd like to see the entire video as I'm gutted I actually missed the event. From the video content shown so far though, it does appear as if it is the Jonathon Ross show - it's interesting to hear his point of view but I hope the rest of the panellists were given the same amount of time to answer and get their points across as well..

But in reality it was the jedward show. honest!

"Women in Games" discussed by 4 men. ...For that matter why is a British talk show host speaking on behalf of the games industry?
