Today is the big media gathering about Fallout 3, so Bethsoft Producer Ashley Cheng decided to rally the troops:
It gets lost in the noise and doesn’t get said enough. For the record, I’d like to thank everyone here at Bethesda Game Studios. Thanks for the hard work you guys have put into everything so far, and for the hard work you are about to put in going forward. Thanks for making us look so damn good.
Making games is not easy. Every game we’ve made here stands on the blood, sweat and tears of the last one, mostly starting with Morrowind. The core team is still here – as we’ve grown slowly, the team overall has built a personality, a knowledgebase, of how to work together. I can’t express how excited and happy I am to be working with everyone here.
It is easy to get stuck in the daily minutiae of the noise, the hyper-sensitive drama that lives out there on the series of tubes. But time makes all that moot. What matters is how we relate and work with each other, and that we continue to strive to make great and fun games.
