Chris Taylor Interview

Just before the release of Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance, I sat down and had a chat with the ever-effusive Chris Taylor. It was a fun interview - it started casual enough, but amped up and up and up until Chris was saying things like...

"When I ride the lawnmower, I put my son on it, he falls asleep and when I'm mowing, I don't think about steering and gas and cutting grass... I think about life. I think about work. I think about things I have to do. I recharge. I re-create. Not recreate. RE-create. I charge my batteries up. When I finish mowing the lawn, I haven't done a chore - I'm actually ready to take on something. I'm sitting on my ass on a lawnmower, so there's not a lot of physical energy there. That's what I think gaming needs to be. Look at your Saturday. Do you want your entire Saturday to be laying around or do you want your whole Saturday to be about working, or would you rather a combination of both?"

Which is great. Lots more to read over here, including where he has his ideas, his love for Lego Star Wars and how he's like his games.
