Naughty Dog doesn’t just stick to the PlayStation 3. Oh no, the Sony owned developer likes to have fun elsewhere, whether it’s in their spare time or to study aspects of the games for their own creations.
In the second part of our exclusive interview with Naughty Dog, the studio’s community strategist Arne Meyer reveals what the team has been playing recently. When we asked what they were playing and which games have stood out for them, Meyer replied:
“There are so many gaming interests among all the Dogs at the studio, from indie games to more mainstream fare and everything in between. We could go on and on about what we’ve been playing and what’s stood out to us and why.
“However, recently we’ve definitely been checking out the Halo: Reach beta and many of us are playing Red Dead Redemption in our spare time, when we have spare time. That’s just one example of many of games we play for fun and also because they’re doing very interesting things in the single-player and multiplayer spaces.”
Good stuff – a developer that does its research is a developer that makes brilliant games. You can read the first part of our interview with Naughty Dog here, with the second and final part right here.
