      Just spotted this on Slashdot

      Gamespot is running a feature which talks to designers such as CliffyB
      and Akira Yamaoka on the subject of [0]what it means to be a game
      designer. From the article: “No one just falls into the position. You
      claw, kick and scream and push your way into it. Most designers start off
      as programmers or artists. They understand gameplay systems; they live
      and breathe games. From my perspective, I was making my own games,
      programming them, doing all the artwork, the production, level design,
      and everything because I didn’t have anybody else to do it for me. That
      background helped give me the perspective it takes to pull a product
      together and have a creative vision for it. Being a designer is about
      having a creative vision and adhering to it.”
