Lee Jackson Interviewed

This morning, the Stratos Group posted an interview with our own Lee Jackson, 3D Realms' Music & Sound Director. What does that title mean? Well, that's covered in the interview, as well as a lot of other things, from personal issues to what Lee does on games to what games he likes, to how he created the theme for Duke Nukem 3D. Here's a few quotes from the interview from Lee:

Q: A lot of fuss has been made in the past few months about the effect of video game violence on adolescents. What's your take on the issue?

A: ...There is something important that everyone should keep in mind about the game business. We don't write babysitting programs. We write games. We mostly write games for people over 17. If a parent decides to use one of these games as a babysitter for someone under 17, then they're using it for a purpose other than for which it was written, and they must accept the consequences of their actions.

Q: What are your other non-gaming hobbies?

A: Right now, I'm into cooking and barbecuing, and I'm trying to get started growing my own herbs for the kitchen. In the past, I've been into photography, model rockets, and programming.

There's a lot of good stuff in this interview, you should check it out!
