Thank your gaming soul for someone like Ubisoft Toronto studio manager Jade Raymond. She's been speaking at the SXSW gaming Expo in the states and she's said very heartening stuff about 'transmedia'.
First up, speaking to ace eater of Doritos and blank-eyed Mountain Dew drinker Geoff Keighley in Austin, Texas, Raymond said that in regard to mobile and tablet games, "A good game on those devices is different from a good game on consoles, so I definitely believe they deserve their own franchises." But she also made one of the great games industry statements ever:
“Our business is making games, so we have to make sure we’re making good games, first and foremost,” she said. “I don’t think we can think out the gate, ‘How is this going to be a good movie?’ I don’t know anything about movies. I’ve never made a movie in my life.”
Applause!! Games are good enough in themselves! Wild cheering.
