I have a lot of respect for Garriot and his legacy. I really enjoyed his games back in the day and think he's had a profound impact on the industry.

However.

I seem completely unable to read anything he says without hearing it in a crazy boozed up ex sailor voice.

"I once invented video games!" *drinks* "Yep. They called me Captain SpacePresident, and I ruled the world from Venus!" *drinks* "Why won't anybody listen to me?"

Heh. He really can get it said, huh? He's starting to become the joke of the industry...

@Calen I imagine you're a part of the industry then? What type of developer are you, and what is being said about him within the industry?

Or are you just one of those people that make blind comments every time you see an article with Garriotts name?

Kind of like how people like to bash Micheal Pacther without actually listening to what he has to say.

....I bet you didn't even read the article...Oh you!

Are you Garriot? Because that rant sounded as crazy as the rest of his.

@Calen If you actually READ my post, I'm not defending him at all.

I played Tabula Rasa and it sucked. I loved it but it sucked.

If you READ the article he admits this and takes full blame for it.

All I'm doing is mocking people who jump on the hate bandwagon with little to no defensible points given.
He sucks cause he sucks is all I read from you post.

But since you just proved you don't even read user comments, I can't even expect you to read a whole article.

But..I must apologies. I usually don't do this, but sometimes I brain fart and believe there's rational thought on the Internet...I mean wow am I stupid sometimes. lol

@hami83 I'm sorry, that I didn't type a wall of text. I'll make sure to type atleast 3 paragraphs of why I hate the stuff coming out of his mouth for future reference.

As for why he is a joke? Cause everything he says sounds like he smoking the funny socks.. pretty much all the time.

I'd think any game designer who claimed the things he did then announced his first upcoming game was a garage sale collection game is out of his mind.

Yep, Shawn Schuster made a ruling awhile back saying the only peeps who should only post here are game developers. Since nobody else knows what they're talking about, unless their names begin with "Ghost" and end with "crawler"....or something like that...

...not.

@Calen You didn't type a wall of text, which is ironic considering your display pic is from that retarded webcomic.

@Calen "I don't like what this guy says because he sounds arrogant."

One sentence. Where are you getting that three paragraphs is the only way to explain your thoughts? You might be thinking too hard.

I like to point my finger at other people too for not being a self proclaimed genius.

@(Unverified) He says it's his fault in the interview. This article paraphrases a lot.

I've got respect for the guy but ever since the close of TR is seems that all this guy does is complain about it getting shut down. He needs to get over it and either make another game or go away.

Lol try removing ": 'Exceptionally unusual pressures'" from the post title.

@(Unverified) no kidding... where has this guy been working where you DON'T have deadline pressure from the brass?

I know I couldn't get away with telling my boss "sorry for the crappy job, but a deadline is just so *exceptionally unusual* that I couldn't deliver"

@fallwind More like, "Sorry for the crappy job, but you just had us working with another company for two years on the project, and now they left, so we're starting from scratch." There's "deadline issues" and then there's "you have wasted two years".

Also, he -was- the boss, and in the interview, takes full responsibility. He's crazy, he's probably blowing a bunch of smoke, but there's no need to twist words to make him look worse. RG is doing a fine job of that on his own, it seems.
