Today we dig deep into the archives to bring you something special: Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto speaking to his fellow game makers as part of his keynote address at the 1999 Game Developers Conference.

At the time, Nintendo was supporting the Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color as it moved towards the launch of the Gamecube in 2001. Miyamoto touched on the company's history and approach to hardware design in his talk, but he also shared his core thoughts about the art of game design.

It was a fantastic talk that also elucidated Miyamoto's vision of a potential future where games are part of a bigger, broader world, one that's still worth studying today. 

If you've never seen it before (or you just want to watch it again to brush up) make sure to head over and watch it now over on the official GDC YouTube channel!
