In his latest, and possibly greatest piece of writing, Tim Rogers explores the mystery of "Who Killed Video Games:A Ghost Story". It's an awesome read, even if you already know how it turns out in the end. It's hard to take just one quote, but here is a good one:
""An ex-drug-dealer (now a video game industry powerbrain) once told me that he doesn’t understand why people buy heroin. The heroin peddler isn’t even doing heroin. Like him or not, when you hear Cliff Bleszinski talk about Gears of War, he sounds — in a good way — like a weed dealer. He sounds like he endorses what he is selling. When you’re in a room with social games guys, the “I never touch the stuff” attitude is so thick you’ll need a box cutter to breathe properly."
The whole thing is a great read.
