    Quoted from rai:

    He’s good to hear about the rumors and has some good takes here and there. But overall imo his opinions are often wrong at least to my thinking. I think about game code and how well a pin plays and even if it evolves into something great such as any number of pins TWD etc.
    Chris is far more concerned about if something released on a specific date or who is the name on the code or art not bothering to look at the code just who the name is attached to the code is all he cares about.
    He doesn’t like Dwight for whatever reason he just will lump every game Dwight does as a missed opportunity. But imo Dwight is one of the better coders.
    Chris should say he doesn’t like Dwight code or he doesn’t understand what nuances and strategy can be brought out with different lead coders.
    He doesn’t like Steve Ritchie, Lawlor and Borg and thinks only the two new guys Keith and Eric can make great games. It’s so much over saturated with his petty opinions not really understanding that other designers and code guys know what they’re doing.
    He got all amped up about Wonka like he was going to have a happy ending with it. I thought nothing can be as great as he thinks Wonka is. Next thing you know Wonka is garbage.
    So when he’s saying GnR is so great that just makes me think there’s a 50:50 chance it’ll be great and 50:50 chance it’ll suck.

    In short... he feeds on hype and criticism... He’s a horrible source for anything actually about the game itself.

    Over and over he proves how his inability to interpret how a game plays or what makes it stand out or not. Some people may call this “changing his opinion...”... but its really his forecasting and interpretation simply being wrong. The difference is he doesn’t just have a take... he goes on how the company or people were WRONG or makes statements about how others will move. He doesn’t actually get the game and business fundamentals, yet he pontificates and trashes those that aren’t doing what hipe believes is right... Yet, he’s proved wrong time and time again.

    Yet, you’ll be sure to hear for the 100th time how he has offered his services... yet people don’t take him up... fascinating...

    It is depressing to see so many parroting his talking points... because they think sounds great or they think it echos their thoughts.
