Default Obsidian Entertainment - Feargus Urquhart Interview @ WarCry

July 11th, 2007, 22:51
NWN2 WarCry has a profile interview with Feargus Urquhart, talking about his background and work life:
WarCry: Everyone is pretty acquainted with your development background at Black Isle and in the classic RPGs of the past. But what is your gaming background? Have you always had an interest in gaming?
Feargus Urquhart: Pretty much, although I think I was an electronic gamer, before I was a Pen and Paper gamer. Odd for my generation, but probably less odd now. Other than the normal board games everyone plays as a kid, my friends and I started playing the games that showed up on watches when I was in 3rd or 4th grade. I then got an Atari 2600 when they came out and played Intelivision for hours and hours at one of my friend's houses. I then got a Commodore 64 and actually paid for a couple of games that came out. I played Bard's Tale 1 through 3, Ultima 2 through 4, Wasteland, Wizard's Crown, the Phantasy series and a bunch of things on the 64. I also ran a BBS here in Orange County from around 1984 until 1988 that was called Dargaard Keep (most of the time) under my alias of the time Lord Soth.
More information.

I've always liked this guy, regardless of the success he's had in the past he never sounds arrogant or full of himself. He is definetly one of the top people in the RPG industry, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for him and Obsidian.

Yeah me too. Obsidian and Bioware are the only two companies in the business now that make quality Western RPG's that are RPG first and action 2nd.

How true! When I think back to my C64 disk boxes, they were all floppies with labels written in pen or pencil. Of course I did keep my actually purchased games in their boxes, but there were far fewer of those than my stacks of pirate chests!

You know the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views, which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.
