Infinity Ward used to be here in Tulsa, but I'm pretty sure they've moved...and Texas has dev houses springing up all the time.



Yeah, they've long since moved to Austin, I believe. There was a sega developer here in Tulsa, but they've gone belly-up as well.

It makes no sense to me that dev houses, especially nowadays, sit in these fucking ridiculously expensive areas. Your code works just as well if you code it in fucking Wichita, fellas. You just save yourself about a million dollars in living expenses a year.

Yeah, plus it's much easier to get guys to work 100 hour weeks in Wichita. What else would they do?

As someone that has moved around the country and been in cities big and small (though never rural or suburban), I can say that I'd happily take much less disposable income and have more options at hand. The Midwestern city I live in now blows. Good food is hard to find, you need to drive almost everywhere, the lack of upper echelon schools deemphasized education and overemphasized getting pregnant so finding an intelligent, educated, attractive single girl is neigh impossible, etc.

Being a single guy with a lot of money in a small to mid sized city is far less entertaining than being one with much less money in a big city.
