Matt Chat 91: The Fall of Interplay with Brian Fargo
January 30, 2011
In this episode, Brian Fargo and I discuss the fall of Interplay even in the face of triumphs like Fallout, Baldur's Gate, Descent, and Icewind Dale. Big changes in the gaming industry led to publishers increasingly playing it safe with fewer and fewer original titles. Brian also discusses his favorite CRPG--Icewind Dale--and how the iPhone and Facebook platforms might be our last great hope for true gaming breakthroughs.
