Today I found a great quote from one of the Picar founders in the local newspaper :

I translate : "Computer animation is only a tool", says John Lasseter, "and the tool alone can not entertain an adience alone.
It's always about the figures and their story."

I think that this hits my own belief pretty good on the nail, so to say : The story should imho always be more important than the graphics alone.

Another quote from there, translated by me : "Pixar's secret is, that it isn't operated by bean counters."

This is to me a proof of my theory that money accountances shouldn't control the gaming area, too.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
