Answer to my question about crowdsourcing:

I think crowdsourcing is great for some people but not for me. I mean, never say never, but I can't imagine having to satisfy 10,000 masters. I'd rather serve one (a publisher or other funding source).

Here is the whole thread sorted by q&a. (https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/34fdjb/hi_i_am_warren_spector_a_game_developer_from/?sort=qa&limit=500) Looks like I was too late to ask a question and get a response from Mr. WS himself, but I just had a quick glance at the thread and...



Dishonored is his favorite game released in the last 5 years.

He is immensely proud of Deus Ex and Epic Mickey.

He liked Human Revolution, as we've heard before, although understandably Eidos Montréal made some design decisions that he wouldn't (not "wrong" decisions per se, as he stressed in order not to sound too critical of their work, just "different"), such as sticky cover system and not giving players a weapon that didn't rely on finite ammo/energy, like a melee weapon.

He found the Mankind Divided trailer a tad too violent, he reserves final judgment to the finished product, which he will obviously play.

To this day, he hasn't played Thi4f.

He detests microtransactions.

Here's more:


Q: What do you think of the new Deus Ex games and are there any Japanese game designers you like?





I think people expect me to be pissed about new Deus Ex games that I'm not making but it's really not like that at all. I'm just excited (thrilled might be a better word) that I was part of the creation of something that's bigger than myself, that has a life of its own.

What did I think of DX:HR? Well, for starters, I don't finish a lot of games and I finished DX:HR. That'll tell you something. When I DID finish it, I kinda sat back and thought, "Wow, I just had a Deus Ex experience." It sounded like DX and felt like DX. It was pretty cool.

The Eidos Montreal guys made some design decisions I wouldn't have made, but overall, I was really pleased.

Now, having said that, my one regret is that the movie deal I had back in 2000 never made it to the screen and now there's no chance it ever will, 'cause DX, the original, is kind of old news.
