    Note this isn’t the first time Will has been on national TV; he and his generally unsung co-designer Chris Trottier were on 60 Minutes in 2003; here’s the transcript. The title of their segment, “Sex Lies and Video Games”, is eerily familiar.

    But culturally speaking, the difference between a game design personality interfacing with Colbert, and a game design personality interfacing with Barbara Walters or whatever, is huge.

    You’re correct to point out a resilliantly incredulous subtext in these media clips, it seems games stil haven’t quite broken through.
