Chris Taylor always spoke as if he was the second coming in the gaming world.
This interview is actually one of the most modest I've seen him do.
The guy did Total Annihilation, and that was pretty innovative and groundbreaking at the time. Whether or not it was accidental, I can't say, but since that time I've seen nothing impressive originating from him. Supreme Commander should be called Supreme Clone. Of course, he's cloning his own game, but doing that and talking about innovation at the same time takes a particularly conceited mind.
I don't have a problem with Vista or the approach MS is taking with games. I don't think they want to kill PC gaming, nor do I think they'll do it with this Games for Windows thing. I don't know how succesful it will be, but I'm sure it won't hurt any.
My instincts tell me it will be a moderately succesful enterprise which will pave the way for further restoration of the once reigning platform of gaming.
