    I'm not gonna lie, Steve, these interviews are making me want to start doing something regarding games. Not quite there yet, damn the winter blues!

Do you have any advice on how to better analyze games or does it just come with the experience of knowing how things get done behind the scenes? I remember reading an interview with Levine, funnily enough, and he said something along the lines of how he's always looking at the games he's playing from a developmental point of view, which essentially ruined his ability to enjoy games as the average joe does.
