Alex Seropian Interviewed
8:07 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

1UP.com recently interviewed Alexander Seropian, current president of Wideload, and founder of Bungie. During his 11 year career in game creation, Seropian has been involved with fan favorites such as Marathon, Myth, Halo, and most recently Stubbs the Zombie. The interview covers a variety of topics including the design of Stubbs, the shifting sands of the game industry, and violence in computer games.

Stubbs the Zombie was a victim of a National Institute for Media and the Family Consumer Alert in November due to its brain-eating gameplay. Seropian is adamant that videogames should not be censored but allows that they should be rated. Parents need to be armed with information. "The thing that is hard with videogames is there's this whole generation of parents who never played them," he says.

"My wife doesn't even know what the "E" and "T" mean. I do because I see a lot of videogames and I have a lot of exposure to [them]," says Seropian. His wife can determine whether their daughter can see a movie based on its poster, director, or even the title; however, "looking at a videogame box is much harder," says Seropian, "but over time, as our generation gets older and has kids, [it will] get a lot easier."
