Curmudgeoning all games equally.

Warren Spector lays it out for us, begs for videogame musical has a whole pile of contextless Warren Spector quotes. It's like a Rorschach test of words starring a videogame designer.

I can't tell whether to be insulted or not:
You can't imagine what you can't imagine. There's a reason some of us make games, and others of us play them. We have to give them something they can't imagine themselves.
But can I imagine that he can imagine things I can't imagine? Or something like that.

On the other hand, this seems spot on:
If you go to E3 and you're not depressed, you're really not paying attention. I mean, three-thousand identical, noisy, crappy... With, like, five good ones you have to spend three days seeking.
Reading as much as I could about E3 2006, I finished with an interest in Rule of Rose and Metal Gear Solid 4, that's it. No, wait, Ace Combat X. I think five was too optimistic. Then again, he also wants a videogame musical.

Raise your hand if you'd like more context for this one:
Is this guy really standing up here, saying we're going the way of Vaudeville? Yeah, I am
Ok, so vaudeville disappeared but some of the stars made the leap to other media. Is that what he's saying? And are the other media things like TV and movies, or is he talking about a new media we haven't seen yet.

I hate musicals. Apparently Spector doesn't:
Nobody's making musical games. I want a musical. I want singing and dancing.
Makes me think of Fight Club: "the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world."

The man who makes a Bollywood-themed Space Channel 5 clone won't have an international hit, but will still retire in comfort.

I'm with Rowan...

If people are LOVING karioke... and turning on their web cams to record their silliness on YouTube....

If Joss Whedon and Drew Carey can do it, and we can do DDR and Guitar Hero - why the heck not?

HELL! Let's bring in a Blizzard MMO so that to get to the really GOOD numbers, you have to have 40 people online, in step and in Tune.

It's called Virtual Reality and people are gonna LOVE being a all-singing, all-dancing Bear
