A Blog of Very Little Brain

'What does Crustimoney Proseedcake mean?' said Pooh. 'For I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words Bother me.'

Been reading an article in Next Generation about five computer games companies that went under, really nice writing.

… Origin pushed the limits and defined the potential of videogames as a medium. Based in Garriott’s own nerdy fantasies, their focus was always on fostering personal engagement with the games at hand (…) It was the user’s experience that mattered in the end, and nothing was allowed to interfere with it.

And then disaster struck, and men with suits came along and told everyone to grow up. And just like that, the dream was over. Our industry has switched leaders from a man who dresses up in a cape and crown to men with shiny shoes who “do lunch”. If videogames today seem like they’re lacking something, perhaps there’s good reason.
