“GTA came from Pac-Man. The dots are the little people. There's me in my little, yellow car. And the ghosts are policemen.”
Jesse Schell, The Art of Game Design: A book of lenses

“Ideas are not like fine china, ideas are like paper cups —
they are cheap to manufacture, and when one has holes in it, go get another one.”
Jesse Schell

“Often, the things people enjoy most about games, such as social interaction or physical exercise, have nothing to do with problem solving. But while these other activities might improve a game, they are not essential to the game. When problem solving is removed from a game, it ceases to be a game and becomes just an activity.”
Jesse Schell, The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses
