The ever-quotable David Goldfarb used to write poetry and now makes shooter games. For a long time, those shooters had the world Battlefield in the title. These days, he's the game director for this week's co-op bank-robbery shooter Payday 2. He's got four answers for us...and one question for you.
This has got to be the year of the heist video game. See Monaco. See the new Sly Cooper. See the Big New Focus of Grand Theft Auto V. See the fascinating, upcoming Payday 2. Yes, fascinating.
David Goldfarb, who worked at the EA-owned development house DICE as the lead designer of Battlefield Bad Company 2 and lead single-player designer on Battlefield 3, has left the Swedish mega-studio.
