Following yesterday’s rant by an anonymous disgruntled EA/Mythic employee, the game industry is abuzz about EA and their latest “whistleblower.” Outspoken God of War creator David Jaffe even chimed in, telling the developer to buck up and try to remember that the end product might ultimately be produced for a different market than what some individuals developing it could have in mind.
“Everyone thinks they always know better than the people in charge. On God of War 1 I still remember a small group of hard core gamers on the team that felt we were making the game 'wrong' because there was not all this deep, deep, Street Fighter 2/Tekken style depth to the combat system. 'Jaffe's out of touch!' 'Jaffe doesn't 'get it!'...never did it occur to them that we were going for something else,” Jaffe explained in a blog post.
