From a few pixels on an arcade screen 40 years ago to a blockbuster industry worth billions of dollars, video games have gradually taken up more and more space in our lives, becoming one of the most preferred entertainment mediums of the young generation.

Art form, scandal, addictive, unhealthy, healthy, professional or entertainment, video games have been described in many ways - both true and untrue at the same time. This talk will try to assess the current state of video games and their cultural and economical impact in today's society.

Game-lover and communications professional, Julien is a PR and Marketing consultant at ICO Partners, a UK agency that helps games publishers and developers find their way into the European market. Based in Dublin, Julien previously worked for Gala Networks Europe and PopCap Games, where his focus has always been about introducing the world of video games to the broader public.
