Cliff Blezinski Offers Words of Affirmation

On November 1, 2022, famed Gears of War creator, Cliff Blezinski released his autobiography, Control Freak, to the public. In it, Blezinski shares his life journey (so far) and shares many great stories about his time in the industry. In addition, he relates a lot of lessons learned in the game industry to lessons learned in life outside the industry. One quote really stuck out to us and should serve as a reminder to everyone, gamer or not, that life isn’t a destination, it’s a journey.

“I saw that video game development was and still is and always will be like real life—less about perfection and more about fixing your mistakes.”
