This is some really good read and nice reminder why I don't miss working for an think-they-are-hot-shit corporate environment.

Re: Blogger tells all about working at Rockstar

That was a great read... totally reminds me of some non-VG companies i've worked for in the recent past who caught on to a good idea, got really big with the semi-unexpected success, and then spun off into into employee-damaging micromanagement and ulcer-inducing workplace environments when the yahoos at the top didn't have the sense to realize they had no f'ing idea how to run their company.

Re: Blogger tells all about working at Rockstar

You know what cracks me up about Rockstar? For all they're talk about being some uber cool and stylish, the graphic to their most successful franchaise GTA, are butt ugly. They in-game aesthetics are just aweful.

After the success of GTA, they really must think that people are a bunch of mindless sheep and will buy whatever they put out.

I actually thought the Vice City aesthetics were pretty cool. But all I wanted to do was drive Cadillacs and operate firearms. The look served the purpose, to a point.
