Z-Machine Wednesday: Steve Meretzky – The Most Perfect Video Game

One of my favorite programmers from the heady days of Infocom is Steve Meretzky (Planetfall, Sorcerer, Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy) and I think his sharp sense of humor can be seen here in the video posted below where he was speaking at the Boston Post Mortem. He offers us the woes of the world and ends his speech with what he believes is the most perfect video game. Here is a hint…I hope you like cake.

A big thanks to textfilesdotcom over at YouTube for uploading this video!
