Speak for yourself man, i would be happy working at Irrational games making Bioshock for a living… If tears need to be shed, so be it. I believe the sacrifice is worth it.
Like….. Seriously how many of you guys have better works than being game dev? How many of you guys has a boss that is actually good and gets the shit done, even at its own pace, a boss that deserves to be in his position. How many of you guys have a boss that will personally write you recommendation letters and help you one by one to get a new job… How many of you have a boss that would explain you the situation, in front of you, and not just toss you on the street like wasted assets…
Also i dont have a family, so that might help me, ill give you that, but then again Levine itself distanced of his family because that was what was needed to be done, how many of you have bosses that will share all the way your grief, your struggle, your wishes?
