Brad Wardell's views about technology, politics, religion, world affairs, and all sorts of politically incorrect topics.
Published on February 21, 2012 By Draginol In PC Gaming

I wonder sometimes whether PC gamers realize that game developers in the PC game market don’t consider each other “competitors”.

People from Valve, Blizzarrd, Bioware, all the way down to a Stardock consider ourselves on the same side.

Who do you think we get to hang out other than with each other?

Maybe that's the problem with the game industry.

The Beatles always looked at other contemporaries as competitors.

Wow...you really do love to troll Brad anytime he speaks highly of his own company! i recall a thread from a year or two ago where you did the same thing.
If you think so little of Stardock, why are you here?

You professed that opinions matter in the other thread, when talking about how GC2 should not have been in the top 100 list, so how about you listen to some of that advice and realize, that other people may well consider Stardock to be on the same level or above even, than the other developers mentioned.

I do.
<Edit> too late Noob, i saw your post. For those wondering what he said. He lol'd that Brad had the audacity to mention Stardock in the same breath as the other titles.
I'll stand by my comments.<Edit>

Ok fine that was trollish.

However on that other thread I ended up being 100% correct.

Just sayin...

LOL.

Seriously, if I could have the whole community over for a party I would.

What most people don't realize is that I'm a Usenet/forum guy who started a game company. I was a forum guy FIRST.

My motivation, good or bad, is to make games for my friends.

People have this same misconception about many industries and organizations. Universities are a great example. The idea that, say, Harvard and Yale or Stanford and Berkeley or Auburn and Alabama are rivals is a myth perpetuated by undergraduate athletics. In reality, each of those places have faculties that collaborate with each other and shared community projects and so on. That doesn't mean they don't compete (for students, for grants, in sports), but at the end of the day that they share a core goal is more important than their differences.
