This GDC postmortem of the classic arcade game Gauntlet is fantastic watching. Amazing to learn what went into making those games and all the considerations in terms of design, marketing and manufacture. https://youtu.be/YbEw8J4pbC4
AI and Games covers the AI in NuDOOM. I'd previously linked a talk on Twittwr how iD modulated animations using IK and keyframe interpolation to make it look natural, but this vid goes into the more detailed mechanisms of it. https://t.co/M4Ack5DfOW
