That is a very humorous quote indeed. I feel as though the time of rock star game developers such as Shigeru Miyamoto, Sid Meier, and your friend Will Wright has been increasingly supplanted by monolithic studios. Kojima being the main exception, in part because he puts his name on his studio.
To quote Geoff Keighley:
You know “Call of Duty.” You know “Grand Theft Auto.” You know “Candy Crush.” But you don’t necessarily know who makes them, and I’ve always felt like they’re some of the most creative individuals out there in the entertainment field.
Do you feel that it is wrong to follow key talent because of how many people are involved with a game’s development? For the record, I’m looking forward to what Warren Spector does with System Shock 3.
