Gamasutra has interviewed Ron Gilbert of Monkey Island Fame on his feeling about the state of the games industry currently. He makes a lot of nice comparisons with the movie industry, and shares some of his insight from his experience with Humongous Entertainment and Cavedog.
There’s some great stuff in there, although I do see a bit of the classic “I don’t like this sort of game so therefore it sucks” mentality so common to us gamers. On the whole you should read it just for his take on small budget/india games and films.
