Denis Dyack has done a good job of making himself more talked about than his videogame, and as a result has become a figure of fun and contempt in recent weeks. MTV Multiplayer requested an interview with Silicon Knights staff who were not Dyack for a change, although the first story to come from this interview are Stephen Totilo's three interview subjects talking about ... Denis Dyack.
Even when Will Wright and Hideo Kojima, two men who have truly earned their iconic status, release a videogame, we still talk about the game more than its creators. We know Will Wright is making Spore and we know Kojima made MGS, but we can talk about those games without the smug faces of their creators predominantly at the forefront of our minds. Denis Dyack, on the other hand, has made sure that he gets more coverage than his videogame. Perhaps he felt that he would promote the game in this way, but as I can see, he has only promoted himself. People wonder why I criticize Dyack so much, it's bullsh*t like that. Denis Dyack is pretty much Jade Raymond at this point, except it wasn't quite Raymond's fault that she was shamelessly made more famous than her game, and she's a bit more attractive.
