Bethesda Softworks - 10 Questions with the Academy
This one is for fans (or anti-fans) of Bethsoft, only. The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences has a 10-question Q&A with Todd Howard on his game development outlook. None of the answers provide deep insight but fans might find it worth a look:
Q: What game are you most jealous of?
A: Currently? GTA IV. Big ideas, clear vision, and gets the little things right.
Q: What's your favorite part of game development?
A: It's the small victories, when the game is really working, you're playing it and you see an opportunity to make something more fun, by either removing something, adding something, or tweaking a game balance number. I think it's easy to dream big, but the fine details are where it happens. Using what’s at your disposal to squeeze out even more fun is very rewarding.
