I originally watched this clip over at Kotaku just to see some new footage of Gears 3, but what I discovered was that this clip was actually a very well produced segment on how the video game industry operates. It also goes into detail on where the major U.S. players reside, how much games really cost to produce as well as the manpower needed to produce a “AAA” title.
Adam Sessler has been writing about, and reviewing games for an incredibly long time. Love him or hate him, the man really knows his stuff. This evening I stumbled across this incredible video of Adam discussing what skills are really needed to start a career as a game journalist and I couldn’t agree with the man more. While Nerd Appropriate is still but a tiny spec of sand in the vast desert wasteland of game journalism, we’ve had an incredible year and have learned a hell of a lot. Having met Mr.Sessler a few times I can say with total certainty that he is very much the real deal, a passionate gamer that truly feels video games are a work of art… Enjoy!
