It's easy for AI programmers to look at games and say, "I would have added this" or "they should have fixed that". However, simply asserting that a game could have had better AI only addresses one issue. There are always other factors to consider. How much would it have cost? What were the schedule pressures? And frankly, where does AI fit in the overall vision for the game? Are there even some games that *gasp* don't need better AI? This panel will explore these questions and provide some perspective into where AI fits in this vast universe of game development.
