SOE Prez: Non-Gamers ‘Have No Business In This Business’
Here’s a thought: Why would someone who doesn’t actually play video games have any interest in working in the video game industry?1 Crazy notion, I know, but still, there are more than a few people making decisions at the highest levels of video game companies – I won’t name names – who really aren’t into games at all. It’s refreshing then to see that one of their number (‘their’ being people at the highest reaches) is actually willing to call that out, at least without naming names. Speaking to Edge Online, SOE President had this to say:
“In my opinion, people that don’t play games have no business in this business. It should be the gamers-only club, I think. I can’t stand people that don’t know what they’re talking about when it comes to playing these things.”
