Somebody that has a diverse taste in games when compared to the rest of the crew. Maybe somebody who's big into rpgs (jrpg, crpg), or strategy games or turn based etc. Just to give a broader viewpoint.
This. It was great to have someone on the team (if only for a year) who actually talked about strategy games and isometric RPGs.
I've been pissed at the trend toward lousy shooter campaigns for years and am really happy to see a game that actually puts some effort into the single player experience. The DOOM devs should be rewarded in my opinion. Really surprised to see Jeff fighting so hard for "the total package" in this case but, hey, #2 ain't bad.
Fallout is probably at the top of my list. Love the first two games, love New Vegas, but Bethesda couldn't make a compelling RPG to save their lives (barring Morrowind, I guess). At least we'll always have a solid trilogy.
