Q&A With Warren Spector
9:42 AM | Scott Turner | Comment on this story

Computer and Video Games has posted an interview with Warren Spector, prominently known author of Thief, Ultima Underworld, and most importantly to Mac gamers, Deus Ex. In it, Warren describes the state of the PC gaming industry, from console competition, to innovation in games, and improvements to come. He also touches on the new wave of multiplayer gaming, as well as his thoughts on video game violence and even episodic single-player gaming.

Do you think that there are still fresh gaming ideas out there waiting to happen, or is it now simply a case of being able to build on old idea foundations in new ways thanks to the increasing power and flexibility of technology?

Spector: If we've reached the point where all the "fresh gaming ideas" have been exploited we're in a world of trouble! Frankly, I think the best is yet to come. Technology, power and flexibility will make possible new kinds of games we can't even imagine. And an ever-expanding audience for games will make new kinds of games commercially viable. We're only now beginning to figure out what games are capable of doing and being and only just beginning to figure out what game design is all about. We're not even close to being out of fresh ideas!
