a little brief for my taste, but dammit if it wasn't riveting. I'll agree with you DSH -- this is among the best interviews you've done. I absolutely loved the level of passion he spoke with for the games he discussed. The anecdote about the designer of Missile Command suffering night terrors literally gave me chills. And more importantly, a new appreciation for the game. Think about that -- a game I've been playing since I was about 8 yrs old has just been made "new" to me.

There's been some pissing and moaning about the game selection for the exhibit. And a certain level of that is going to be the perils of making a list. The second you make a list of games, somebody complains that you missed one. (And no, I don't think Ninja Five-O is a defining game of the GBA library, no matter how fucking awesome it is. :oops: Sorry, went off course there a bit). But having heard this interview, I at least now understand that hearts are in the right place for this exhibit, no matter which games finally make it to the exhibit halls.
