Towards the second half of the video the focus changed from “finding the fun” to a bunch of development related subjects and questions. Don’t get me wrong here, I loved the discussions happening. Maybe “fun” wasn’t a great topic to make a video about because it is subjective.

A bit ago someone on the forum asked about how to make a game “entertaining” and fun. Here is a link to that discussion: https://devforum.roblox.com/t/what-makes-a-game-entertaining/1531684/5

Great video and great advice from Splitting Point towards the end.

This definitely looks like the round table of times past.

To my knowledge, the term ‘round tables’ historically referred to meetings done by King Arthur’s sphere to ensure no one member had a superior seating position to any other. Do note that round-table meetings usually housed many people at a time.

This term has been heavily corrupted (at least here) to signify not much more than a Q&A session. I’ll only call this a roundtable once fellow developers are allowed to directly participate.

I understand that the claim I’m making here is a bold and cursory one; I haven’t watched the stream in its entirety yet. If there’s anything that I failed to pick up on, do let me know.
