For those that don't know me I've been in the computer game business for over 22 years. I started off at MicroProse as part of their coin-op group, and then brought over to sim group when coin-op (then a separate company) was shut down. After that I was one of 5 guys recruited to start up the Jane's / Origin group in Baltimore, later moved under Jane's / EA when Origin went MMO only. When that studio closed I went back to MicroProse, at the time part of Infograme US later renamed Atari, and then BreakAway Games where I'm at now. There were no sims during these last two so I probably won't bring up any stories from those times, even if some of the stuff at BreakAway was military oriented....
