I know it's been said by just about everyone else in this comments section but David Grossman does seem like a nice guy.
" Dave Grossman is weird. He looks like a merge of two of the Marx brothers constantly doing a Monty Python sketch. "Haha. That is fantastically accurate.
David is pretty chill
Dave is the man.
Hoorray for kids in the hall shoutout! And I love the fact that when I'm watching a video and notice something subtly out of the ordinary, I glance at the comments and someone has mentioned it.
This was really interesting. Dave Grossman's certainly a quirky guy. Nice to hear more Sam and Max is coming too, I wonder how the control scheme will handle for that as Telltale's been more experimental lately.
I don't think he blinked once.
Funny guy! He reminds me of Kevin McDonald from Kids in the Hall.
Why does he look afraid of the mic.
Like at any minute it seems like he thinks Ryan will take a swing at him.
Maybe it is just his weird constant eye contact thing that is throwing me off, not sure.

" @MrKlorox: It's completely unnecessary to hire actual comedians to do either writing or voice work. Not only is humor in games very different from from your average stand-up comedian's idea of jokes, but any decent voice actor can deliver a funny line without actually being a comedian. "That's not really true. There are many forms of comedians than the stand-up variety. Yes the delivery method is different, but that doesn't mean developers are better at putting the funny in games than professional comedians. And it doesn't matter how good a voice actor is if he has a barren sense of humor and doesn't get the timing or inflection.
He probably didn't want to end up staring at ryan's manly nipple. Good interview though, and I love all these PAX vids.
Look at the size of that man's hooter.
Good interview, Ryan.
David seems like a really nice guy.
You heard it here, developers: If you want a funny game you should HIRE COMEDIANS. I say not only for the writing but also for the voice work. Sam and Max episodes are full of awful and dull deliveries, even if the writing is pretty good.
Graphic adventures are they ONLY genre I can imagine an animated comedy series working in. Beavis and Butthead in Virtual Stupidity was the only one that really did it right.
It's a pet peeve of mine also. I got so annoyed when Joystiq called Leonard Boyarsky "Leo" and "Leon".
" Sorry about this lame correction, but his name is Dave. I'm really really sorry. "
7:54 he breaks eye contact!
Really nice and lengthy interview, David seems like a cool guy.
Great interview. David is a goofy guy.
" This man. does not. break. eye-contact. "It's creepy..
Season 3 of Sam and Max confirmed? WOOT!
Telltale is single-handedly reviving the adventure game genre.
Cool interview. Mr. Grossman reminds me of an elf.
This man. does not. break. eye-contact.
Sorry about this lame correction, but his name is Dave. I'm really really sorry.
all this videos of pax are long and neat. That's great!
