This guy is the heart and soul of Halo. I remember his face more so than any one else at bungie.

I don't know the faces of more than a handful of developers, I really don't think it's necessary, just as I don't need to know the face of who directed the movies I watch. Being able to point somebody out in a crowd is pointless. Hell, I don't even follow game credits, I don't know writers, programmers, artists, or voice actors. Yeah I know a few names in the business, but I don't feel it's necessary.

It's not just games, either. I couldn't point out Shakespeare, members of U2, Regan's VP, any baseball, football, or basketball player. I simply do not care. Everybody is so tied up on accomplishments, but they are just small gears in the overall machine of civilization.

If you enjoy video games, then the creators of that enjoymnet deserve recognition, and thanks for the enjoyment you received from their work. If you play video games, and get no joy from the experience, then I am at a loss, and can only hope your apathy abates for you.

They get my money, isn't that enough? Not many developers show their faces on a regular basis. Am I supposed to dig deep into websites to find the face and name of somebody who programmed one level of the game I played 2 years ago? That's just ridiculous. Developers don't do it for recognition, they do it for the end result. Do you actually sit and read the credits of every game you play? I don't care who made it. All I care about is having fun.
