Epic Mickey director Warren Spector believes that gaming would’ve been much better today had the greatest minds in the industry spent as much time on improving A.I. and gameplay as they spend on polishing graphics.
"I've been actively trying to shame some of my fellow developers, specifically John Carmack and Tim Sweeney,"he said.
"Can you imagine what games would look like if those two guys spent as much time working on non-combat AI as they do on rendering?” he added. "Can you imagine what games we would have if John Carmack decided he wanted to create a believable character as opposed to a believable gun?"
"Those guys are way smarter than I am. I don't know how to solve the problem, but they could figure it out."
