GI.biz reports that Pirates Of The Caribbean director Gore Verbinski has told developers at the DICE summit in Las Vegas that “This is the time for madness.” The wealthier-than-thou mastermind behind the Pirates series has decided that games aren’t being crazy enough with the creative juices. (Tell that to ACE…)
“I understand why companies are making sequels. But if a developer is making a game from scratch, why are they making another Halo? There are so many other places to go,” said Verbinski. (“Well duh,” said half the gaming world.)
“In order to be fiscally responsible, you must operate outside of the data. You must possess some madness.”
The problem with videogames, you see, is that most of the time they’re made by the people who want to make videogames. And mad they are not.
