Yeah he's remarkably down to earth and I agree with every single one of his sentiments. He's the kind of guy you can have a converstion with about games normally and not feel awkward and at the same time have respect for his talent and what he has achieved.

Cliffy, if you're reading this, you're a G no matter what the keyboard warriors say.

Love these kinds of interviews with interesting people.

I never thought about what he said about BioShock being oppressive with the underwater environment, but I guess he's right now that I think about it. He's spot-on with Call of Duty and Halo, too.

How did you miss that in Bioshock? haha!

So, Halo > Call of Duty. That won't start ANY fights, nope.

THAT'S what you got from the interview? Wow ....

Out of interest, do you agree with his sentiments regarding COD and Halo?
