    Open Challenges in First-Person Shooter (FPS) AI Technology

    First-person shooters have a reputation for driving graphics technology, and it's no different for AI. Many notable innovations of the past few years have come from FPS games — including the AI Director from LEFT 4 DEAD, the STRIPS-planner from F.E.A.R. the HTN planner in KILLZONE 2, etc. With the latest wave of shooters being released in Q1 & Q2 2011 (e.g. CRYSIS 2, BULLETSTORM, BRINK) there's no better time to stop and take a look at which challenges are still ahead of us.

    This Year in Game AI: Analysis, Trends from 2010 and Predictions for 2011

    Every year, I write an analysis of the past year's trends and break down predictions from 12 months ago to see how accurate they were. Without fail people ask me whether much has happened during the last 12 months in game AI.
