    He looks like a geek. Which is good for a guy developing a geek game.

    I would be more worried if he looked like John Riccitello

    I trust him that's why I'm not touching EQN cause his presentation made sure I am skipping this one.

    The muscles on his face make him seem earnest, but his dark beady eyes look like they had the life sucked out of them.... which is probably more with the lighting being an issue.

    I dont throw the word trust around so easily... I dont like to sound naive, and I feel your question is more about peoples willingness to trust rather than if a face can be trustworthy. I have seen some untrustworthy faces which are trustworthy... so its not in the face so much.

    Looks like a man who enjoys his work.

    I don't trust anyone who isn't pretty.

     

    This is why I promote people based on prettyness alone. Well, that and a firm handshake. When a pretty person firmly shakes my hand, I know that this is the guy who is a top notch programmer.

     

    P.S. And that's how everyone else does it. Looks and ability to brownnose trump achievements every time. Suck to be you, uglies.

    2 ways to see that person...

    One scary fake-smiling person.

    Or someone that really enjoys w/e he's doing for work? thought it's hard to see whether or not it's an earnest smile or not.

    Attacking someone on his physical aspect... fantastic.

    I'm surprised how many people(%) trust him, though they don't probably know him at all. Suckers... :P

    Same is said for those that voted 'No', poll is flawed image

     

    Most of us never see the other 95% of employees that make the MMOs we love, I don't have to trust in a face.  Oh, I get the joke and it's a spinoff of a comment but the OP in a previous thread.

     

    In fairness....

     

    If we're going to mock how someone looks shouldn't that person also show themselves?

    I agree. This thread must be a new low for MMORPG. Lets judge someone by a bad photo. Or even worst...lets judge a game by the look of one of it's dev's.

    Are we back at highschool or something???

    As much as I love what they are apaprently attempting to do with EQ:N, I have to admit that I don't really trust Dave Georgeson.  I've seen other guys like that in similar positions who have nurtured the ability to always be bubbling over with enthusiasm about whatever it is they are talking about/selling.  Oh how they just wish they were allowed to tell you more!

     

    It's a valuable skill to have, but it's also one you have to be wary of. 

     

    In EQ2, you could watch your character age before your very eyes!  Oh my goodness! (Yeah that went over well).

     

    Anyway, still a fan, just a cautious one.

    Dave Georgeson reminds me of a cartoon character. Not sure if the resemblance will have any implications regarding EQN, of course . . . .  ::smiles::

     

    In all seriousness, I disagree with Dave Georgeson on a number of things (like 95% of things). But I still like the guy. He's friendly and has a good presentation.

     

    And no, I don't trust anyone working on EQnext at this point. Just gonna wait for results and parse reality from marketing when there's evidence to do so.

    I'm honestly confused - why shouldn't it be? Some of the posts in this thread were hilarious.

    I'm sorry you think this is your Facebook page where attacks on physical attributes and vans with vulgarity would be acceptable.

    Wait a minute.....are people actually taking this thread seriously?  Are these posters for real? LOL

    Let's all take a step back and remember that this is the internet, and nobody really thinks he is a bicycle seat sniffer. xD

     

    ps. I voted No- I would not trust his face ever! but I didn't really mean that- im still interested in the game o_O I'm sure he is a swell person INRL....cant judge him though, don't know em at all. :p

    I don't trust any gaming company that tries to sell me access to their game for 100 bucks before they even list the minimum system requirements. I realize that may sound naïve, but think about it. By not listing the minimum system specs, you can be sure there will be a percentage of your customers that buy a founders pack only to find out the game runs like crap or not at all on their pc. That's not good business. It's also not the sign of a company that's looking out for its playerbase.

    your defense sounds vaguely familiar ... perhaps the 'high school' comments aren't so far off.

    nihilism wrapped in bullying humor. good show.
