Wow, this IS the end of an era. Their (Ray/Greg) importance in the gaming industry cannot be denied. Well done guys, and good luck in your new endeavours. A new chapter is upon us people... I am putting all my faith in the indie developers. This is but a natural way of all things. Out with the old, in with the new. I cannot wait. isn't it exciting!
The economy can only go up from here... innovative gaming ideas are going to explode in the next few years. But looking back, wow. In 20 years the gaming industry has overtaken the movie industry as entertainment platform. I cannot wait to see what free thinking, creative people are going to come up with next. Ain't it great to be alive in 2012? Bring it on!
