Tadhg Kelly on why games don’t need traditional media: “Games are beautiful as they are”

EDGE - Speaking today at Edge Presents: Changing The Game ahead of the Evolve conference inLondon, videogame designer and Edge columnist Tadhg Kelly called on developers to reassert their position in the wider media world.
