(re: RE: You fell off KENNY BOY!! YOU FELL OFF!!!)
For Tony –
There is absolutely no reason for you to insult Ken like you have been, nor to lose your respect for him. It seems to me that he has always done what he thought was best for everyone – gamers and employees alike – and while mistakes were made, negative hindsight is both useless and hypocritical, as -everyone- makes mistakes.
I have strong doubts that Ken ever wanted to sell Sierra, and I feel that he did so because he felt it was the only thing left for him to do at the time. It is hardly Ken’s fault that Forbes basically betrayed him and Sierra. Ken is not the one to be blaming here.
He is still a person to be respected. Think about what your gaming life would’ve been without him. Sierra was one of the biggest impacts on Adventure gaming. Heck, we probably wouldn’t even have Half-life today if Sierra hadn’t existed to be bought out in the first place.
So, instead of focusing only on what went wrong, as our species’ dear politicians have an exceedingly disgusting tendency to do – you should think about what went right. A lot of good things game from Ken, Roberta, Lori and Corey, Al, Josh, and all of the rest. For us imperfect humans, they did a pretty darn good job with what they had.
