Any time skating was featured in a video game, I ate it up. So around 1997-98, I was shopping this video game idea.

If I play a video game, I have to get through the whole thing. Like, when the new ‘Resident Evil’ comes out, I have to sit and do the whole thing. It will consume my life.

‘Madden’ is the closest thing to actually being on the field yourself. It’s so ridiculously realistic. Before I play it, I honestly didn’t understand. ‘What’s all the hype? It’s a video game’. Then I sat down and played it, and you feel like you’re on the field. — Ne-Yo

‘Final Fantasy VII’ is my favorite video game, and I had a conversation on Up Up Down Down, and I don’t wanna say who is my favorite character, but my default would be Sephiroth. — Shayna Baszler

Among video game developers, it’s called ‘crunch’: a sudden spike in work hours, as many as 20 a day, that can last for days or weeks on end.

I was not grown up in the U.S., nor in Japan. In order to create a video game that people around the globe can enjoy and relate to, I can’t draw things deeply rooted in the local culture that I’m not familiar with. That’s why we are not doing games about football or samurai. — Jenova Chen
