Will Wright Is A "BAFTA Guru"


The British Academy of Film and Television Arts doesn't just hand out awards these days, it's also about trying to inspire people to be excellent in the first place. (It is very much the austere British charity version of Bill & Ted's philosophy.) To help do this they've created BAFTA Guru, which gets successful arts types to talk about their work. Most recently the focus on videogames has been turned up, and BAFTA now send word that their games-focused mini-site now hosts videos from Will Wright, David Braben, Peter Molyneux, and others, all talking about things that interest and inspire them in their work. BAFTA says all this is set to expand, and report that "in the New Year users will be able to upload their own content to the site to discuss with others."

To celebrate this BAFTA have released a (very) brief clip of Will Wright talking about videogame addiction, which you can see below.
