But before I begin, here’s a photograph I’d like to dedicate to Bren Lynne, our programming instructor!
John Romero! …And some other guy!
#5 Meeting Industry Heavies
You never know who you will bump into at GDC. I found myself riding the escalator next to John Romero, the designer of the original Doom. Doom was a very influential game for me personally, as well as a landmark in the history of games. It’s nice to meet someone you admire, and GDC has an atmosphere that makes it easy to approach anyone and start up a conversation.
