They make the games we love, but what do they play for fun? We ask de­vel­op­ers to pick six from Xbox his­tory. This month: Brian Fargo and Chris Keenan

XBox: The Official Magazine - - START -

Chris Keenan: I would def­i­nitely choose The BioShock Col­lec­tion [1]. I’m a huge fan of the BioShock se­ries. I think some of the stuff Ken Levine and that team have done within that game as far as emo­tional im­pact has been fan­tas­tic, and it’s spurred me along ev­ery step of the way. That’s one of those games I would be happy to re­play mul­ti­ple times, over and over.

Brian Fargo: I would choose The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt [2] for sure be­cause it does such a great job on im­mer­sion. I feel like I could play it over and over again. I would prob­a­bly say the

Dark Souls se­ries [3]. Even if I was trapped on a desert is­land I don’t think I could fin­ish it! I would pick Over­watch [4] be­cause it’s such a great mul­ti­player game. I would’ve said Hearth­stone, but it’s not on Xbox. Waste­land was a PC game first and when we went to put it on con­soles there were a cou­ple of games we stud­ied that I thought trans­ferred that iso­met­ric game­play re­ally well. I was amazed at how well Di­ablo III [5] played on con­soles. That to me was a great con­ver­sion from some­thing that was such a true PC game.

Bat­tle­field 1 [6] isn’t out yet, but, boy, that looks good. It looks so beau­ti­ful and I’ve heard noth­ing but great things, so with my lim­ited num­ber of op­tions I would use one on gam­bling on Bat­tle­field 1 be­ing great. [Un­sur­pris­ingly, it turned out to be bril­liant. Good call, Fargo – Ed.]

Brian Fargo Fargo is the founder of in Xile En­ter­tain­ment and is de­vel­op­ing Waste­land3 with Keenan. They’re cur­rently laugh­ing and rolling around in a big room full of money (we as­sume) af­ter suc­cess­fully crowd­fund­ing over three mil­lion dol­lars for...
