Today, as I was getting ready to go out looking for a home again, I had an idea, an image in my mind that was right-now and yet I had no time to blog about it.
Games development is like a Zen process. It goes on and on, each game only a step in the path toward 'the best ____ evar'. Each game answers some question, fulfills some need, and yet creates new ones or steps the community toward a newer interpretation or revision. The advance of technology also pushes this ideal of an ultimate-perfect game outward as new interfaces add more options, create more potential play styles and ask more questions about what is possible and what is best. Each game is like a step along a sort of Zen path to game enlightenment.
Thus maybe, the devs with the most Kung-Fu never think of their current project as end all, but only as another step on the path?
