David Lynch on Videogames


- Games without Mystery

When you are spoon-fed a game story, more people instantly know what it is. I love things that leave room to dream and are open to various interpretations. It’s a beautiful thing. It doesn’t do any good for Barry to say, ‘This is what it means.’ Videogame is what it means. If Barry or anyone else could capture what the game is in words, then that’s poetry.”

- Playtesting

"Even with only ten people, you can feel a game differently than if you play it by yourself," he added. "By yourself, you're too relaxed, and you're not really forced to get that feeling of many people in the room which is a horrific feeling, sometimes, but it forces you to see a game through a group's eyes, and you can learn a lot of things from it. Up to that time, you've been working part by part and getting the individual parts working; but seeing it all at once, it could work great part by part, but as a whole, it doesn't."

- Game Stories and Meaning

“There is a key in the game as to its meaning,” said the director. “But keys are weird. There are surface keys, and there are deeper keys. Intellectual thinking leaves you high and dry sometimes. Intuitive thinking where you get a marriage of feelings and intellect lets you feel the answers, where you may not be able to articulate them. Those kinds of things are used in life a lot, but we don’t use them too much in videogames. There are games that stay more on the surface, and there’s no problem interpreting their meaning.”

  1. Great words! The first quote posted "Even with only ten people, you can feel a game differently than if you play it by yourself,"... Totally agree here. There is much different feel when you play something alone, like some RPG game, and when you play with people. Like he says the pressure is different. You're too relaxed when you play alone. Like his way of thinking :)

    Thanks for sharing!
