No other video game developer does things (or more fitting, everything) quite like Blizzard Entertainment does. From developing, in my opinion, the most iconic video games to spectacular live events and tournaments, from highly detailed merchandise to a blockbuster feature film, Blizzard has this unique ability to bring a world of fantasy to life, fantasy that feels real and alive.
Blizzard has been know for bringing characters and items from their fictional worlds to life in various art forms and their latest is an iconic item from World of Warcraft; Ashbringer - a Paladin Artifact weapon. Watch legendary Hollywood blacksmith Tony Swatton of Sword and Stone use the mighty tools of his trade to bring Ashbringer to life.
With 2000+ videos uploaded and over a billion views, TED is a not just an idea it is a movement. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design and was the brainchild of Richard Saul Wurman, who observed a convergence of these fields in 1984. With the slogan “Ideas worth sharing” TED has become the 'go to' for information and inspiration from the world's leaders in the fields of not only technology, entertainment and design but also for science, culture, medicine and academics among others.
The very core of what TED is, is what can define video games; technology that is designed to entertain. But, video games are far more than just entertainment and today, more than ever before, video games are being accepted into our everyday life and are proving to exceed most gamers wildest imaginations. The following TED Talks by respected individuals in their particular fields of interest highlight just how dynamic and influence video games are and will continue to be beyond the realms of entertainment.
