Working in the Gaming Industry (Part II)



As I started to settle in and understand my role, it was becoming more and more evident that the things that made sense to me, didnít necessarily fit into what the companyís expectations were. It was very important to me to provide a voice from the gamers point of view, and I tried to stress that in every meeting, conference call, and ideation session.

Honestly though, there were some opportunities to offer up new perspectives, and I took full advantage of them in talking to lead developers, marketing, management and basically anyone who would listen about incorporating public desires into certain titles.

I want to say thank you, both for the time you spent writing this and your honesty. I wish I could say I am surprised by any of this, but that would be disingenuous on my part. I find myself wondering what would be the extremely large dollar amount that would be required to "take over" a certain company through a stock shopping spree?
Could you find enough capitol within a group that holds similar ideas about such games to beat the "talking heads" at their own game?
Maybe not, but I would love to see it happen...

That extremely large dollar amount would be in the near billion range.

This sounds too much like Ian talking about EA but who knows, I could be wrong. Heh...EA has been on some rubbish for a min. Some good things have come about and so has a lot more bad. Then u look at 2KSports...

This is about what I expected, sadly the gaming industry is only one part of our economy approving these business practices. Good read.

Well then, I have a new goal - 1 billion dollars to raise to save NFL video gaming from silly suits. Seems fair enough. Now let's see, that means I need to save an additional 1 billion dollars - as I am flat broke at the moment.

Hey, I can dream right?
