This ability to transport the player to impossible worlds is what I love about video games, and it’s what great art and entertainment has been achieving for thousands of years. It’s also why I don’t worry too much about the rise of Facebook and iPhone games turning these sorts of experiences into dinosaurs, rendering them obsolete and then extinct.

It’s always been the opinion of the Men With Money that nothing is popular because it’s good. According to businessmen, things are popular because someone succeeding in duping the public. This isn’t, necessarily, the worst way to approach things, as a businessperson. It’s always helpful to consider that your success might actually be because you made a mistake somewhere.

Mantra

“If you immerse yourself too single-mindedly in your chosen art form whether it’s video games, movies, comics or whatever, your work can easily become just a reflection of what others are doing in that field rather than breaking new ground.”
