One of the most aggravating moments of a visit I made to the Game Developer’s Conference a few years ago was in a session where Ralph Baer came and talked about how he made video games.
He wasn’t talking about how he made a video game – RALPH BAER MADE VIDEO GAMES. HE LITERALLY CREATED VIDEO GAMES.
If you work in the video game industry you literally owe this man your job.
It just really ticked me off that I was the only guy in the (small) crowd that gave him a standing ovation. Sheesh. Show some God damn respect, you stupid video game industry.
