Part of my job involves interviewing developers and talking with them. That means that it’s important for me to remember who these people are, obviously. A good chunk of my job centers around knowing who works as the director, the producer, the leads of various departments, and so forth with any given game. This is probably a positive thing in the end, as if you’re annoyed by a specific string of decisions in World of Warcraft or Guild Wars 2 it makes more sense to know who is responsible for making those decisions.
But do you know about that?
For the average player, there’s not much help to knowing the narrative lead on GW2 aside from answering trivia questions… well, and knowing who to praise or blame depending on your feelings about the narrative decisions being made. I’m curious about how many people really invest in learning this information when it’s not strictly necessary. So do you know the names of the people behind your favorite MMO?
