Blizzard's Rob Pardo Discusses Game Making
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Gamasutra has posted an overview of comments made by Blizzard Entertainment's Rob Pardo at the Game Developers Conference. During the discussion Pardo covers a range of topics including StarCraft II, World of Warcraft, and the company's plans for the future.

Next, the discussion moved on to the upcoming RTS Starcraft 2, which, according to Pardo, "...is at a fun stage. There’s lots of stuff happening. The game is playable, and it’s quite fun. We’re now really starting to make ground on the single player."

But how, Moledina, asked, do you balance input from the community, versus the team, versus marketing team focus group data on a tremendously datarich game such as Starcraft 2?

Pardo mused: "The first thing is that everyone playing the game has an opinion. And you can’t take opinions as right or wrong, because for that person it’s true. And you can’t take it personally."

He then mentioned that someone sent him a 16 page diatribe on a balance change he made in one of Blizzard's titles, and said that he actually hired the guy.
