How You Play the Game

It's not whether you win or lose, its how you play the game.  I've been thinking a lot about this saying.  The older I get, the more real it becomes for me.  My last five years at Electronic Arts has indeed taught me a lot about winning and losing,  Getting things right and getting it wrong.  More importantly, I've come to truly appreciate the people I work with who epitomize collaboration, hard work, open minds, and positive attitudes.  Just about any problem we have is solvable with the people I work with every day.   

There are hundreds more like this that I have worked with over the past few decades. People that most gamers will never hear about, but who shape many of the things we do best.

I want to do a show about them.  Not necessarily about the games, or the revenue, or about platforms - but the people in the industry.  I want to hear their stories. How they got into the business. What motivates and inspires them.  What they do - and how did they get good at it?  What keeps them up at night / and what gets them up early in the morning? I want to know how they play the game.

I've signed myself up to do 50 episodes and interviews.  I think it will be fascinating.  I hope so!  If not, there will still be a sizable amount of history recorded - and that will always be a win in my book.

Thanks for joining me on this journey!
