Khalathwyr writes: I had no respect for this guy as I believed he was, at best, a snake-oil salesman. This interview changed that. Kind of cements, though, my opinion that it is actually the "suits" in these companies that are killing games for the most part. Mon Mar 30 2009 12:06PM Report

ingi writes: Game design theory is real, just like music theory is real. A great artist doesn't have to study music theory to make great music, and the same goes for the games industry. But that doesn't mean the theory that exists today is not actual. Btw paul lol you just had a 12 minute conversation with yourself :p Mon Mar 30 2009 2:13PM Report
todeswulf writes: After hearing that idiot Jeff Kaplan spew complete nonsense this is so refreshing to hear. It just shows you the difference between a real game developer and some smhoe who got his position because of his "personal relationship" with the producer. Mon Mar 30 2009 3:49PM Report
Flummoxed writes: Excellent interview. Indeed things like Flash have once again allowed the 1-man team to make cool games in their living room. This is where the true innovation came from in the late '70's with computers like the Apple II, now it's happening again. Mon Mar 30 2009 6:57PM Report
