I've got something of a vested interest in it (by which I mean, I've got something interesting up my vest: it's a big hernia).
I always made up stories as a kid - whether it was on the fly with my Star Wars action figures, drawing cartoon strips, or telling the rest of the village that I'd seen a wolf - so it's odd that I took such a meandering route into writing scripts professionally. Particularly given that bad or lazy writing is something about which I get pointlessly incensed.
That said, you can always choose whether or not to listen to anything I say about the quality of writing in video games. Never take my word as gospel.
I mean, on the one hand I've been writing scripts professionally for 15 years, have a few BAFTA nom-noms and a couple of RTS Awards under my truss, so you might think I know something of which I speak... but at the same time I was the guy who wrote Pudsey The Dog The Movie, widely considered to be the greatest atrocity in the history of humankind.
