Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I know it's become an ongoing thing about whether videogames are art, and I think there's plenty of examples of things that use the form in a fascinating way. Things that are more surreal or artistic, like 'Katamari Damacy' or 'Vib-Ribbon.' See more »

Trivia:

In the second series of The League of Gentlemen (BBC) he was parodied by Reece Shearsmith, as a hospital doctor trying to tell someone they were going to die but only able to do it by making constant references to films such as Beaches, Terms of Endearment etc. See more »
