Video: Will Wright tries to design humanity's last game

In this 12-minute snippet of the final Game Design Challenge at GDC 2013, high-profile designer Will Wright steps up to the task of designing "the last game that humanity will ever play."

The final Game Design Challenge took place back at GDC 2013, and brought together winners from past challenges for a simple but overwhelming task: "design the last game that humanity will ever play." 

As part of this game design exercise, legendary SimCity and The Sims creator Will Wright took to the stage to present his own unique solution - a game aimed to disentangle meaningful memories from mundane ones on social networks.

His thoughtful solution to the challenge attempted to encompass all of human experience, and now you can watch his specific segment of the final Game Design Challenge -- a 12-minute snippet of the full panel -- for free over on the GDC Vault's new YouTube channel.
