I think that you've more than made your point: you hate Chris Avallone.

I also think that you're trying to incite flame wars...but that *could* just be me...

And you wonder why the world has religious fundamentalists... :D


Anyway, the Gamespot interview was slightly predictable. The interview at NMA was way more fun reading.

Maybe it also sort of explained why Jane Jensen's novelization of the GK series was an abomination. Sigh.


Keep writing, Mr. Avellone; and keep publishing for PC.
