    Good to see some of you publicity shy developers.

    One thing got me at the end of the video:

    "Games Ireland […] predicts that Ireland will be the best place to develop games by 2016"

    I don’t understand what this statement means. ‘Best place’?

    I’m presuming that by "Best Place" they are talking about a large active community where developers share ideas and network often.

    As well as that the government tax incentives and funding options being very good.

    In that case:

    "Games Ireland […] predicts that Ireland will be a great place to develop games by 2016"

    Unless we have the best community and best tax incentives and funding options.

    Well if there’s one thing the modern world is teaching me on a daily basis, it’s that you ain’t gonna get anywhere these days by basing your projections in reality. You gotta be promising that you’re the ‘best’ or ‘no 1’ or some other ‘moon and stars’ scenario or folk just ain’t that interested. Of course, the problem with reality is that you can’t avoid it.
    I do find it a little worrying that our primary lobbying body for the industry here should come out with such a seemingly unrealistic and downright juvenile statement. Were they misquoted? Do they mean best in the British Isles (though even that’s hard to fathom)? I wonder what’s going to happen between now and 2016 that’ll make Ireland ‘No1’ for games development? I guess if every other first world nation (and some third world nations) made games development illegal we might be in with a shot. HEY! Games Ireland! You wanna explain? Maybe let the community in on the plan here?

    Sorry Jaza I genuinely don’t know what you mean, can you add more to the sentence? thanks :)
