In an interview with Rolling Stone, fame game designer and founder of Lionhead Studios and Bullfrog Peter Molyneux was asked about his regrets in the industry. In the interview, Molyneux admits he regrets selling Lionhead Studios to Microsoft and Bullfrog to Electronic Arts. Molyneux stated..
“Oh God, if anyone says no, they’re a sociopath. There are many, many things I would do differently. Should I have left Microsoft? I’m not sure I should have. Should I have sold Lionhead to Microsoft? I’m not sure I should have. Should I have sold Bullfrog Productions to Electronic Arts? I’m not sure I should have. There are so many mistakes to be made. But really it’s how you deal with those mistakes.
If you face a mistake, you have to think about reinventing yourself. And the older you get, the lazier you get, and the harder it is to pull yourself out of the mire. To get the best out of yourself, you have to be at risk. You have to be on the cliff edge. If you’re in a place that’s too comfortable, then you can stagnate.”
