Full Sail: What games are you currently playing?
Jameson Durall: I have a backlog I’m trying to get through. On Xbox 360, I’m about 30 hours into Mass Effect 3 and am focusing on experiencing all of the content. I also recently picked up Final Fantasy Tactics for the iPad, one of my all time favorites. I have Diablo III installed, but have yet to play since I know it will consume all of my time.
FS: What are you most enjoying about Mass Effect 3?
JD: The thing I love about the Mass Effect series is the ability to create MY story line and play through all three games knowing that it will be a unique experience to me.
FS: Do you find it helpful as a game developer to keep up with the latest releases?
JD: Focusing on current titles is important so I can see the constantly evolving quality bar that’s put out by the industry. We are always learning new things.
