As a game designer, I can tell you that no, you don't need to be "good at games" to design games, but you need to have an understanding of what makes a game fun, what challenge level is too light or too hard, and so on. While I would consider myself a fairly good player in most genres, I sometimes have to rely on the feedback of much better players in order to get a good idea of how fun the game is for them. Thankfully, my office is full of players of different levels, so we can get feedback from newbies to pro material.
 
Working with one game and designing it feature after feature, you naturally get a decent understanding of the mechanics and you will usually become pretty good at it in the end =) Still, judging from the video in the original post, that seems to require some smooth handling of the gamepad, which is a skill that even the brightest designer might never achieve.

We all know that GRIN shut down, but does anyone know if some parts of the old team moved over to Fatshark and worked on this sequel? I hope that the music will be as good, at least.

I'm really interested in reading some good books on game history, preferably along the lines of Masters of Doom. Any suggestions?

I'm pretty lightweight: My biggest hamburger was one with 200 grams of beef, but I'm sure that a ton of you have eaten bigger burgers. What's your best score in terms of grams?

Interesting to see how close it was between Batman: Arkham Asylum and Uncharted 2 even in the community.
