Do you know what it's like to be surrounded by gamers? Day after day, in the company of extraordinary people that understand 5 important words - "The object of the game."
People that understand, you gotta beat the game. You gotta keep going to the right. You can't fall. You can't die. You gotta get that. You gotta avoid those. You gotta save the princess. You gotta defeat the boss. You gotta find out what happens at the end. You gotta read the credits at the end.
One of my goals in life was to be in the credits of a game I like. Mission accomplished!
I never wanted to leave Square-Enix, and wish I didn't have to. But... what's done is done.
