hah – no worries man. No offense taken. 😉
You are indeed correct – a majority of the people at Westwood were very arrogant in terms of what they did and their contributions to a project. Inter-office politics also went practically un-checked and cost many people promotions and/or raises. I was offered a design position for Earth and Beyond while I was testing it, but couldn’t get the position because the Manager of QA (Brett Sperry) wouldn’t ok the transfer for one reason or the other (I assume it’s because I didn’t do enough sucking up).
But that’s in the past now. I’m currently working on designing my own game while working at a Burger King AND I’m getting ready to go back to college. I’d love to get back into the game industry, but it seems Westwood was the only player in town and with them gone, my hopes of getting another job in the industry is dashed (unless I move and I don’t want to do that right now).
