"The old mario games had incredible story"
The mario games were the pinnacle of video game story telling what are you on about
kinda cool seeing a ceo of a huge company take interest in video games, he seems like such a normal person to talk to, like you could have a beer with him at a pub and he wouldnt even talk much about his business or who he really is
you dont find that quality in a lot of ceos
did he really say mario lol
i think musk was talking about the old deus ex and adventure games when he meant older games
sorta funny that musk seemed to be more video game savvy than the actual interviewer who brought up the question to begin with
he'd totally be the best shitposter here
i think videogames are an incredibly simple thing for him to talk about because on some level everyone understands it, you could see his face light up in that conversation and it was honestly heart warming to see him not struggle as much
the guy claims deus ex belongs to his heart so hes 110% a-okay in my books. he was alright before too what with the whole tech stuff.
I wonder if Elon has played Garry's Mod.
Well, he did make a video game in 1984 at the age of 12. Makes sense that he'd be so into them.
It's pretty hilarious that seemed to know more about games than the people there.
At first I thought it would be a lame "Hello fellow kids" situation, because I simply can't believe he has time to play videogames when he is the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla and so on...
But he does, I am pleasantly surprised. Maybe I will meet him some day, I will ask him if he plays KSP.
He taught himself how to code on his first computer when he was ~10-12 and made and sold his first game. When Elon and his brother were teens they tried to buy an arcade. They got so far all they needed was a signature, but they were minors and their parents didn't let them.
When he moved to silicon valley, he was briefly hired as a low level coder for a game company trying to use CD's to store game software. Within a few weeks Musk was working off the rails and was impossible to boss around.
Spot on about the decline of good storytelling in games. Who needs it when you've got multiplayer PVP battles and hunger bars to keep up with?
I would've thought Kerbal Space Program
I feel like that interviewer only started playing game around the ps3/xbox 360 era since Last of Us is relatively new
I know Elon can be a bit awkward during interviews, but he was pretty damn great in this one. The interviewer, though? He was so bad.

Like, you have the cool opportunity to ask Elon about video games that influenced him, and he even leads you on with the interest in DeusEx, and you blow it that badly. That's a shame.
Also I've never played rust, I thought there was some sort of backstory to it though.

I wonder if he likes tales of clones and big giant robots...
No joke, I was gonna post that I have a weird fantasy that Elon and Kojima would team up on a project somehow.
Look at what Bethesda tried to do with their paid mods. Companies are greedy entities, they're all about finding what allows for the best profit:effort ratio and exploiting it.
that first part was between two ferns
The Shin Megami Tensei series?
The Persona series?
The Metal Gear Solid series?
Fallout New Vegas?
The Witcher games?
That's excluding the tons of indie/small studio games with great writing. Like...
The Lisa games
Hotline Miami 1 and 2
and the list goes on!
I'm having a real difficult time thinking of any retro AAA games with a great story.
