    I've always enjoyed these kinds of retrospectives when the actual principals/creators are involved where they provide first hand accounts and narratives. Thank you for getting actual interview time with these folks.

    And this is one of the best short retrospectives about the Diablo franchise with current input from the key Blizzard North principals and creators. I learned even more than what I previously knew from their candid insights on the organizational culture and clashes with their Irvine counterparts. Too bad you couldn't get an interview with Roper as he was one of those folks who believed in finding ways to reward players for their efforts.

    This stuff really ought to be made into a video documentary (20th anniversary project for someone to take on).
