    So I browsing the web recently when I found this.

    http://www.valvesoftware.com/company/publications.html

    Most of the presentations seem to be slides without much on them. I guess that most of the presentation was verbal rather than reading off of slides. However, I found a particularly interesting one where the person uploaded their speech notes along with the slides...

    I thought it was fascinating to read about how Valve creates such things... The guy from Valve mentions Fallout, Skyrim and some other games as well....

    What do you guys think?
