Brian Fargo - Proof that great developers =/= Great businesspeople Almost every gaming company today - proof that great businesspeople suck at games. If your in the games business, and you dont have the publlic profile/reputation of someone like Will Wright, you cant afford to work on "risky" ventures (SimCity and The Sims were very risky, noone knew how the market would take them and could have sucked, luckily for the sims, EA was listening, with Simcity, the Gaming Establishment learned a lesson). All Ive got to say is get used to Crap games from once great developers. Its all we're going to get., drones and clones, with the occasional diamond in the rough becoming more rare. The gaming industry has matured, just like we know Planes are all basically going to be the same, Games will be too. The Only solution I see is the get the true gods of gaming into a room and tell them not to come out until they make the greatest game ever. Will Wright for his Zaniness, Sid Mier for AI, Chris Roberts can do all the Interactive-Movie stuff that Wing Commander Pioneered, A Pitty Douglas Adams cant write the storyline, Roberta Williams can do the puzzles (the hard ones at least) Feel free to add some more names to my list. But Im sure of one thing, it would be something like we aint ever seen before.
