To Err is Human. To forgive, Levine.

I'm not sure what I was trying to do with that title.

In the big ol' interview with Ken Levine which we launched the site with, I mentioned that other bits of the transcript found homes elsewhere. The biggest chunk of it has emerged, as PC Gamer republishes online my interview with Levine which is in their current print edition. It deals with controversy, developers reflecting culture, the price of a legacy and a splash of Randian philosophy. And here's a quote.

"If you look at the '60s, you'll see Vietnam movies like John Wayne's Green Beret being made. And you go to the '70s, you have Apocalypse Now. From this ultra-patriotic unquestioning thing, we're moving to a stage where games are getting mature enough to reflect the zeitgeist a little. BioShock is reflecting the confusion I have."

The rest is here. Consume essential information. Consume!
