Re: The Games Industry
I notice the average maturity of the management in AAA studios is much lower than a company doing proper software engineering. This used to make it fast and dynamic, but nowadays it risks filling a company up with arses.
Also, with so much middleware and tools available today, you no longer get the truly introverted but highly talented developers. You mostly just get immature (hate to say it) white males(TM) who in the past have been the target demographic of games.
[yes, I say this as a white male myself and after spending countless years in a AAA studio rehashing up the same old game, time after time. Been there, done that. I never saw a "female" there so I guess I was lucky I never saw anyone being mistreated (based on gender at least)]
