Top 10 Most Jarring Quotes from Industry Execs

"Many harsh things have been said over the past several months from the likes of company presidents, designers, and CEOs. With people like Cliff Bleszinski and Peter Moore providing gems like "A beta is like hooking up with a girl just to say, 'yeah, I f***ed her'...", there's no shortage of zingers that have made their way into headlines. We've compiled some of the most jarring quotes from various interviews that have taken place throughout the course of this year, and this is what we've found."

I thought it came out really well. I've gotta say, though, between the general election race and these circus clowns, there has been a lot of quote-worthy things that have made it into the headlines.

Circus clowns? Don't you think that's a bit harsh? I love the Blezinski quote about betas though.

Haha, the sad thing about what Cliffy B said (I don't care what he prefers to be called now that he's rolling in money) is that despite its obvious chauvinism, it's kinda true. Playing a beta is bragging rights fo' life.

Also, Kojima's comments depress me considerably. Maybe it's nostalgia.

Well, games started in the West, so it's coming full circle. These things go in waves anyway. With development going global now, devs all over the world will take turns being the best.

You could fill up the entire article with any number of Dyack quotes. I have to say, however, that the Perrin Kaplan quote threw me off.

My favorite quote is probably the Retro employee who said that Miyamoto visiting the office was like the emperor visiting the Death Star (or was it Darth Vader?).

Violence in gaming article has just been ended by Mr. Kaplan.

Wow, yeah seriously, that's all that needs to be said.

Okey, nr 8!
So true, but it's getting better. My friends finaly don't bother so much anymore. But a few years back, it was bad to just talk about games. I think WoW have something to do with that.

But I love some of those quotes! Maybe you could get some older once aswell?
