    …if you were to release your first major game to critical acclaim and sales, and then were told they had 24 hours to live, would you be happy with what you had achieved in life?

    An early morning post is ever there was one! ;)

    I wouldn’t be happy, unless I bedded Angelina Jolie within the next 24hrs……then…..then I would die happy. :D

    I suppose I would be happy if the game was well remembered e.g. Goldeneye.

    I’d regret nothing have spawn…er…children, to continue the ‘research’.

    Hrm, how I managed to not reply to that at 5am is beyond me but anyway…

    Keeping the regrets thing strictly to games I’d have to say no, if I died after making only one critically acclaimed I wouldnt be really happy, mainly because I’d want to make another brilliant game to prove the original wasnt a fluke…

    Not only that, but with them out of the way you’ll be able to soak up all the critical acclaim and interviews that come along with it. Not to mention royalies would only be split one way. This whole death thing works out pretty well then. :P

More cash for me. Then you’d have time to do something wothwhile with your cash because you’d be shocked by their sudden death warning.
