Do you think that Jay Wilson still goes home to play Diablo 3 for fun? I mean, I am in general a strong advocate of it, even if I have my gripes about the storyline and so forth, but even I have been on a playing hiatus for about five days.
How many people on the Diablo 3 staff do you think are still playing for fun?

Blizzard's one of those 'by gamers, for gamers' companies. I'd honestly be very surprised if he didn't play D3 himself. I mean sure, I doubt he's one of the uber hardcore types, but I bet he's enjoying the game at his own pace.
To put so much effort and dedication into creating something, you have to enjoy what you're doing. You have to truly believe in it and want to spend that much time on it. He has to be a gamer, and the only way to know if you're making a good game is if you make the game you'd want to play. It'd just be bizarre to think otherwise.
Well he probably played hundreds of hours of it before it was released, for testing purposes. Even if the game was in a different state at the time, I'm not sure if he'd be still super interested in it.
He is probably working his ass of on the xpac for D3 before people get over the game.
Look at this guy he thinks Jay Wilson actually writes the code.
I'm sure there is a lot more that goes into a game than just sitting at a computer writing code. Jay Wilson's title is Game Director. Just by guessing I'm sure he has more of a role in managment of each department (code, models, netowrking etc etc etc) rather than sit on a computer all day tapping out code.
I bet everyone in the d3 is working their ass off at the moment. Regardless if their job title.
You think he would work on a game this long, giving interviews, answering questions, talking us through the development process with such passion...and when it's finally finished after EIGHT years he'd be like..........................................................................................................MEH this shit is not for me. Really?
