APC: Before you wrote the kernel, you wrote a clone of Pacman. Do you play games at all and if you do, which ones?
LT: I don't games that much, I don't tend to find it interesting enough. And when I do play, I tend to play things that are more kids or teenager games: more of a "platformer" kind of thing. I played the original Prince of Persia a long time ago before I started Linux, and for that reason I tried out the modern versions, and liked those too ("Sands of Time" in particular, the later ones were a bit too serious).
APC: Would you write another game if you had the time? If yes, what would it be? Do you have a favourite type of game, such as adventure?
LT: I really only wrote some (fairly bad) games because I was interested in the programming, not so much the playing. I found it more interesting to just do flicker-free graphics at high performance than the actual game-play.
So no, I'd probably never do a game again. Especially in these times, when games are a lot more about the content, and less about the things I used to worry about.
