GDC 2011: Ngmoco’s Young Tells Game Entrepreneurs 'Don't Be A Pussy'

If you want to be a successful entrepreneur in games then “don’t be a pussy.” So says Neil Young, CEO and founder of Ngmoco, quoting advise given to him prior to founding the mobile games company.

Wow, this guy is one fire. First the NGP will be D.O.A. now this? At least I can agree with this one.

What I don't understand is why any one cares what he has to say in regards to NGP. He does not make games for gamers. Not one of his games is made for someone who actually enjoys playing games.

I am sure he made these statements to garner some attention, and it worked. Though the average gamer who is paying attention to the GDC could truly care less about ngmoco and its shovelware. Cliffy-B you are not sir.

Not discounting his business accumen or relevance to the mobile market, I just don't care for his games. I know I can't be alone in this.
