The lights are on
A month ago I started thinking about video opportunities that would be available at E3 2011. When considering what I would most like to see, the far-fetched idea of Minecraft's creator (Notch) sitting down and interviewing Bethesda's game director (Todd Howard) immediately sprang to mind. In a dark meeting room inside Bethesda's booth on the show floor, with the bass from the nearby Prey 2 demo bleeding through the walls, I set the cameras up and let the conversation flow. From Notch's love of Oblivion to Todd Howard's opinion on the greatest game ending of all time, watch the video to see these two gaming luminaries pick each others minds on the potential within their own games as well as the wider gaming landscape.

I'd love to work on Bethesda, it looks like they have so much fun on their free time, and while making games ...
Best interview ever.
Two of the worlds most awesome people sitting in a room discussing. I could watch that *** all day.
Awesome i loved this. If there was a company i could pick to work for it would hands down be Bethesda. I love what they are about and the games they make especially The Elder Scrolls series are just amazing. imo they offer the most bangfor the buck out there.
If only Don Lafontaine were here to give an introduction to this conversation.
well, here's my attempt. It deserves one... *clears throat*
"In a world where two game industry icons, MEET, under one roof. The tension rises, as these two fine gentlemen stare into each others soul, BOTH... with something to say. This summer, the legendary encounter between Todd Howard and Markus 'Notch' Persson becomes a reality IN... [insert awesome title name here]
Tag line: Nerdgasms will be had.
Two of the best minds in gaming in one room? *nerdgasms*
Notch is one of the people that make you proud of being swedish :D
this was awesome, todd howard is probably my favourite guys in gaming, seeing him and notch just talk about their games is really cool.
Notch: "I also tried using bows. Uhh. Huh." Hahahahaha!
todd howard is my hero and minecraft is awsum. so seeing as i sold my ps3, ds, wii, and all my games im realy regretting giving upo gaming. And after hearing these two luminaries of the gaming industry sit and reminisce about oblivion, skyrim, and red dead redemption i realy feel the gamer in me trying to stage a comeback. at the very least i must have skyrim!
This was awesome! Make more one-on-one interviews, gi!
I would like to see more interviews in that fashion!
That was cool!
Greatest after the credits ever! (Even though there were no credits.
That was a really cool interview! Both of these guys are so talented and it was great to see them together in one room.
You should endeavor to make this a bi-monthly or occasional series in which two gaming luminaries simply, casually, converse with one another like above, even though it is incredibly difficult I would suspect to ordain such meetings....just use GI magic and make it happen! lol
this was great
