In this GDC 2018 talk Daniel Brewer and Rez Graham explain best practices for helping video game AI make decisions that will feel impactful to the player.
It was an engaging technical look at what goes into the design and implementation of everything from AI danger maps to AI director design, with lots of insights into how to tune AI for optimal pacing and tension.
It was a fascinating talk, and now you can watch it for free on the official GDC YouTube channel!
