I have to say, this is a rare gem of a thread on SW, even if the majority don't care about the actual creation of games. Been watching the presentations as well, though DICE is great GDC is generally where it's at imo.
These presentations always just get me more ticked off than anything. The RPG keynote with the guy from Obsidian and Ray Muzyka especially. No guys, I don't want more social features in my RPGs, thank you very much.
