About Us


CRITICAL PATH is an an ever-expanding documentary project about the art, craft and culture of videogame design and development. The site features a collection of over 1,000 interview video clips with the greatest minds in video games; it's a who’s who resource for the industry with updated bios and credits for industry luminaries across all disciplines; and it's a series of documentary shorts focused on creating conversations around the most important issues facing the videogame industry.


Welcome to a massive database of information and insights from the leaders in videogame development, education, business, and journalism. There are a number of ways to navigate the site to find the type of content you are looking for.

  • The FRONT PAGE features regularly updated and curated content to provide you with an easy way to get started viewing interview clips, documentary shorts, or researching thought leaders or “minds”. If you don’t know where to begin, try clicking on our featured NEW VIDEO, CONVERSATION, or MIND SPOTLIGHT to jumpstart your exploration.
  • The VIDEO PLAYER PAGE contains the title and description of the video you are about to watch, and information on the subject, associated tags, and related videos. Items highlighted in blue can be used to navigate further; search by the related tags or mind, or head directly to another video clip.
  • The EXPLORE page is the your tool for searching the entirety of the site. You can search by CLIPS, MINDS, PLAYLISTS (curated collections of clips by topic), or CONVERSATIONS (documentary shorts) by selecting the appropriate tab and typing a term into the search field. EXPLORE will search every interview’s title, tags, roles, credits, and complete transcript, providing a robust search engine for both academic research and entertainment.
  • If you can’t decide what term you’d like to search for, check out the INDEX which features the complete list of every tag, videogame title, and mind found on the site.
