Thanks! We don't get to see what goes on in the studios that much. Actually looks like a nice place to work.

It's always places that have a cool environment like this that seem to do the best work.  
 
My favorite part was learning the combat animator is actually a fighter.

That seems like a really rad office. Wouldn't mind working there...

the people who worked on Red Dead Redemption would disagree, i think!

A lot of large office buildings do these days.

That is pretty damn awesome

@Dany: 
And an in-house chef.  Crunch time means you will stay in the office - but at least you can stretch out and get fed.

I'm even more pumped for this game now.  That video was cool, I would love to work there.  The cover for the new game informer looks good too.

Wasn't there only one letter to come out of that? could have been from one angry employee, doesn't mean it's a bad place to work.

I always enjoy seeing the work space for a video game company.

That looks like a really cool place to work at. Also there's a map!

The video game me chills. I would never work at a place where the company would have a gym and/or other luxury amenities. The presence of such facilities for me means that they have you trapped. Why go home when you have everything you need to enjoy yourself at work? I am filled with abhorrence with just the thought of such a concept. There is a difference between enjoying one's work and living for one's work. 
 
All those glass windows with the view of vast empty space; an illusion. An illusion of freedom.

Having gym at work saves me a lot of time, time I use to play games! Can’t wait for Skyrim!!

#29 Posted by Eric_Buck (1289 posts) -

Holy balls. I wanna go work with those guys!

#30 Posted by Grilledcheez (3947 posts) -

That was too cool. What a great place to work.  LOL at the most popular guy in the building: The Bethesda dedicated chef.

Great post. It really is an impressive looking building and seeing how their working space looks like is quite interesting.

Hmm... they never showed where the QA guys worked. I wonder why.
