You are my hero. You are the reason why I wanted to make games when I grew up. You're also the reason I flunked my frst job interview in the gaming industry.

I was interviewing to be a tester at Midway and everything was going great. The last question was, "What is your favorite game?"  I responded, "Monkey Island 2."  I couldn't tell if the interviewer was confused but he had a very strange look on his face. He abruptly ended the conversation and escorted me outside. Never heard back. Looking back it was one of the best things that ever happened to me.

I didn't understand that the gaming industry had shifted, but it was pretty much after that interview that I realized that I would never have the opportunity to make the games I wanted to make and I wasn't going to waste my life making stupid shooters or sports games.  

I don't want to say it, because it's not my place...  You don't know me and I don't know you, but maybe it's the one game you can't make that is blocking your creativity.  I hope something clicks for you though, because when that light turns on you make some of the most amazing games I've ever played.

Just seeing this revamped site makes me nastolgic and excited at the same time.
