IGN: A Conversation with David Jaffe

Acclaimed game designer David Jaffe is currently hard at work at putting the finishing touches on the PlayStation 3 release of Twisted Metal for later this year. Jaffe, who co-founded a new independent game studio Eat Sleep Play in 2007, helped produce several successful Sony titles over the years, including Twisted Metal 1 and 2, Twisted Metal: Black, and God of War.

IGN caught up with Jaffe during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco earlier this month to get his thoughts on the used games market, what he likes about games media, and the future of gaming consoles.

"It's more about first-person shooters with deathmatch in games like Call of Duty and Halo. How is Twisted Metal still relevant today?"

"Jaffe: The gut answer is: I don't care. We think Twisted Metal is really cool and fun."

Answered that like a boss. I love Jaffe, I think he's very talented, and he really knows what he's talking about. Sometimes his delivery is a little harsh, but he gets his point across.

Hah, that's awesome.
It's good he feels he doesn't need to justify his work.
Artists don't paint thinking 'How is this relevant'
This should be no different.

WOW this is a great read and some of his ideas on game pricing sounds great for ALL gamers.

i love how he also calls out sites like ign saying are they becoming irrelavant with sites like N4G around where all the news is in one place

IGN: "What do you like about the gaming media right now?"

Jaffe: "I think print has gotten.............

......What's hard for websites like IGN, GameSpot and the blogs like Kotaku, is that now there's all these aggregators are out there. It's not that I don't go to those websites, I certainly do, but now I just go to N4G and GameTab."

XD. You tell them!

EDIT: "There are some websites that are like the tabloids, and IGN are no means that, but I do think you guys could use a fresh coat of paint."...

they are. they are. IGN is nothing but a tabloid now.

The man himself the creator of GOD OF WAR jaffe you are a hero you have made the greatest game to ever been released and i am sure you will not dissapoint in twisted medal

PlayerX2598d ago

God of War the greatest game ever released? Lol

JoySticksFTW2598d ago (Edited 2598d ago )

Ok, would you settle for one of the greatest ever?

It's obvious that GodofwarGoty is a huge fan, so I take his declaration to mean that it's up there with the greats

And it may be at least the greatest hack & slash game ever created IMO, with great story, action, main character, and setting
