Thanks for the response! I just think it’s fascinating to try to take a bit of a sociological approach to something like the history of computer games… especially since “social issues” isn’t really something that naturally or automatically comes to my mind when thinking about computer games.

Also, what you say about wanting to censor some of the inside humor stuff makes sense. But I also think that a lot of the stuff (like your cameos in the LSL games, etc.) that reminded players that there were real people behind the game development made for a bit of a bond between regular Sierra game players and the designers. Feeling like you’re familiar with the designers probably made a lot of players more interested in and loyal to Sierra. At least it had that effect on me…
