Benjy Davo's Blog

 

Hello I am a former modder who has worked on many levels for TFC, Day of Defeat, Jedi Outcast etc. I also did some freelance artwork for a bunch of fairly unfashionable games in the middle of last decade and did a brief stint at Codemasters but left due to lack of work life balance.

I get what you are saying. hell I think they could hire a younger team of devs to make additional game content to appease the masses. I have often felt they are missing a trick by not making something akin to Left 4 Dead in play style but set in ...

I sort of agree with what you are saying. You do sense that Kojima in particular would rather be making films. His cringeworthy fanboyism of the medium and boasting about hanging with actors and directors is palpable. What 's worse is that he and too many others simply rip fairly ...
