A week after JJ Abrams and Valve's Gabe Newell took to the stage at DICE 2013, you can finally witness the meeting of the minds firsthand. Led by the Abrams / Newell keynote, Variety has posted a slew of videos from the conference for your viewing pleasure. Sure, we've already covered what was said during the presentation, but that's not quite the same as seeing the excitement on the faces of both men (and hearing the passion in their voices) throughout the 20-minute talk. Better still, you'll get the see the clips referenced by Abrams and Newell as they discuss and debate the art of storytelling in both cinema and video games. If all you're interested in is hearing about potential collaborations between the two, skip to the 19:50 mark. But if you're a fan of either man on stage, it's worth taking in the entire chat.
