(A salute to Ken) Just like the rest of us, Ken is a mellow, relaxed man now. Sittin at home, sitting down, watching TV without a care in the world. Hes got a wife who hasn’t got tired of him after 30 years, and plenty of good reasons to relax because of what he did in 1979. He made an empire of joy.
He put his money, and life into getting millions of people to sit in front of the computer screen, and have a good time. Ken must be damn smart. Hell, programming is one of the hardest things to do! All of it is just ones and zeros, over and over again, for about two to five years. If ya ask me, thats the most boring thing someone could do, but he did it without a flaw for about 25 years.
If ya ask me, Sierra On-Line made the best games back in the day. Sure, Lucasarts was good, but Sierra reigned king. Other companies like Apogee and Interplay tried to topple Sierra from its throne with some good ones, but they didn’t budge. Ken Williams made Sierra what it is today.
God bless you, and dont let them put you in the home. No matter what anyone says, you’re Ken Williams, programming genius. Not a senile old kook. You’re the man.
Oh, and by the way, I might have asskissed a little there, but most of it was an honest, heartfelt compliment.
