A lot of people think that way, which is why so many companies are flocking back to NYC. If you need bright young minds it's the best place to be. So many startups are there (due to major financial incentives allowing it, as well as the talent pool) and companies such as Macy's, Diageo, etc., have moved significant operational areas there to capture the talent base.

But yeah, I don't see Paradox really needing that talent base.
I'll definitely keep an eye on their Careers page, though. Getting back to NYC from the midwest has become top priority.

Yeah, if I was filthy rich (i'm just filthy Wink ), I'd love to have a vacation place in the Upper East Side.

Opening offices in places like New York mostly seems like a good way to lose a lot of money very quickly.

But it's a great way to get back...back in the New York groove.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.

I love Paradox strategy games. The only changes the company needs in my view is to ship finished working products.

I welcome this move. I've ordered retail (box) games from them in the past, and on barge from Sweden it takes 6-8 weeks. By the time it got here, it has a lot of significant patches and even some DLC, but quite honestly I'd preferred to have it sooner.
