What's the game that made you who are you are? NO CARTRIDGE LIVE takes this question to the next level, inviting video game industry professionals onstage to play their favorite games and talk about how the creative choices in these games shaped the development of their own work. From explosive personal stories to exploding onscreen gibs, nothing is out of bounds. Whether you love playing games, talking about games, or talking about playing games, you'll come away with a better understanding of what makes game creators tick.
