So what's the story with Serious Sam?

Why is Serious Sam: Second Encounter listed as one of Greg's games? Is it a mistake, or did he really help with the development of that game?

His role is listed as "Thanks."  Does that mean he was thanked in the credits?  Did he do beta testing?  Weird.

I was listed in the special thanks, along with like a bazillion other people. I was pretty surprised to see that, though since GameSpot gave Serious Sam: The First Encounter its PC Game of the Year award in 2001, and I wrote the review, that's probably why. I had no direct contact with the Croteam guys apart from some some thank-you emails around the time of the award, and had nothing to do with the development of Serious Sam: The Second Encounter. I loved the game, though.

Also, while I'm setting the record straight, the description of me on this page, while flattering, is inaccurate; I tried to change it but my changes got stomped for some reason. I joined EA LA as an associate producer, and my current title is producer. After Command & Conquer 3 shipped, I worked on post-release support (i.e. content patches) for a number of months before starting work on Red Alert 3, which is currently in the later stages of development.
