Feargus talks Obsidian at IGN
Interview - posted by Spazmo on Thu 2 February 2006, 05:15:07Tags: Feargus Urquhart; Obsidian Entertainment
IGN had a nice, long interview with Feargus Urquhart of Obsidian Entertainment about... Obsidian Entertainment.
Feargus admits that he gets yelled at sometimes for saying that games aren't art. "I think that sometimes games can be art in a certain way but that's not what we're doing. We're providing entertainment." And for Feargus and the team at Obsidian there's one cardinal rule for making sure a game is entertaining: "Don't frustrate the player. If there's any one thing that should pervade every form of game design it's that you shouldn't make the player fight the game."Games not being art is kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy, though, especially coming from Feargus "Slam Dunk" Urquhart.
Thanks for the heads up, baby arm!
