Itagaki is my hero! I've never seen anyone brave enough to open up and share with a room full of peers and critics in such an honest way.
I've always respected Itagaki for all the attention to detail he put in the games. This is the most touching and sincere speech I've heard from any game developer. Respect and thanks for the great games. Cheers
Itagaki's speech was earnest, sincere, and heartfelt. At DICE, it's fantastic to see these designers present themselves in such a humane and philosophical manner. It really elevates the industry.
