How's this one?

Avellone: if games get an increasingly large slice of the entertainment industry, then the folks who create these games must expect a greater social profile. While that is not yet the case, what impact do you think larger budgets and a more diverse following will have on future developers? Do you see yourself becoming something like the writers, directors, and producers of today's films? ...Or do you see your current status as a computer geek head and shoulders above other geeks as part of your unchanging role. ...Or do you even see yourself as a dying breed of designers who's rarified skills cater to the narrower tatstes of the elite CRPGer?

Is it possible to give new life to CRPGs without leaving the old skool RPGer behind in the past?

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to offer their input. The brainstorm is now over and hopefully the mod squad can collate this and have the Chris Avellone thread up by the weekend. Thanks!
