Dan Teasdale's Speech and Analyst Stupidity
Editor's Note: Holy crap! Our own Primee133's comment is on about 2:03 of that video!
I came across this video about a week ago and it's great that Dan Teasdale (one of the lead designers of the Rock Band series) has joined an independent developer, Twisted Pixel, creator of The Maw and 'Splosion Man. But mainly, it got me thinking about the stupidity of video game analysts and the ridiculous opinions* of big name video game sites. Michael Pachter and GameTrailers comes to mind. A sample of this ignorance can be found in this video:
Real-Time Strategy games are single-player and turn-based? Are you sure you're a video game analyst?
*We are aware that there can be ridiculous opinions found on smaller sites such as PK Gaming from the editors and commentators.
