Will Wright – The creative value of videogames

March 20, 2006

Will Wright has a great commentary on videogames in the latest Wired (link via Boing Boing). Excerpt:

…I think part of this stems from the fact that watching someone play a game is a different experience than actually holding the controller and playing it yourself. Vastly different. Imagine that all you knew about movies was gleaned through observing the audience in a theater – but that you had never watched a film. You would conclude that movies induce lethargy and junk-food binges. That may be true, but you’re missing the big picture.

    Well, I know I always had a great time watching you guys play video games…but maybe I’m weird that way. 🙂
