The guys on American Pickers always talk about their obsession with classic car related merch (gas cans, pumps, signs, etc.)

Personally, I've never really seen the appeal. But I've never really been opposed to collecting nostalgia purely for nostalgia's sake either

I'm taking a class taught by Romero's wife right now. He's going to come in at some point to guest lecture. Also going to get to meet Warren Spector at an on campus conference.

She's actually quite knowledgeable and doesn't seem particularly casual or feminazi. She even made a Daikatana joke in lecture today. She picks on John a lot.

Yeah. My uni has one of the top game design majors. That's not my major, i'm just taking it for fun and to be more well rounded. Specialization is for plebs. When she said Warren Spector was gonna be on campus I felt my dick twitch.

as far as game devs go I think Romero is shit and at no stage was good. Doom to him was a fluke, if he was good at making games Daikatana would have been amazing if he had any skill in game design daikatana would have been average, but it wasn't it was the blunder of the decade. then again Warren spector was good he made Deus ex but then he went on to make epic mickey 1 & 2 so maybe I am wrong.

>if he was good at making games Daikatana would have been amazing
Daikatana wouldn't have sucked so badly if he hadn't opted to switch to the Quake 2 engine with only months to go. That's what screwed the entire project over. Q2's engine was completely different from Q1 and effectively required them to redo everything in only a couple months. If he'd only stuck with the Q1 engine it might've been a decent game. Nothing revolutionary like Doom, but certainly not the blunder of the century.

It's one of my dreams in life to meet Koji Kondo.
Few people, if any, share this dream, but it is my dream and it would just complete my life. Kondo's a big reason why I decided I wanted to get into composing.
