he was an Ass-hat who was most likely shown the door.
My theory is that it is people like you who got to him, and he had to quit to keep his sanity. People like you complain about everything. You get too caught up in your own little world, in your own perception of what the perfect game should be, and if things don't go your way, you start ferociously attacking any representative of the game company you can find.
If you are such a brilliant mind and have all the right answers, why don't you start a gaming company yourself? Since it's so easy and since your answers are better than everyone elses, why bother harassing others?
Get a grip and stop attacking people like that just because you disagree with the direction their game is moving in, or go away and start your own damn gaming company.
