I found this exchange both sad and telling:
"WO: What are your passions in life?
JS: I don't really have any these days.
WO: Surely there must be something. You sound like the type of person with many intellectual passions. How about the motorbike riding across the country?
JS: I have a lot of interests. I just wouldn't describe them as passions. To be passionate would require a higher level of focus and dedication than I am currently giving to anything in particular."
This is exactly why I quit working in the game industry after a very brief foray. It kills your passions elsewhere…. a pure time vacuum that sucks up energy and joy…. and the joy of building the game eventually gets sucked up too…. or, at least that was my experience.
