Jiro Dreams of Game Design
From early on in the careers, three-star Michelin chefs - a rarified 106 in the world at present - have a nearly tyrannical hold on their kitchens. They insist on perfection in every ingredient, in temperature, in presentation and in accompaniment. From the first to the lasting impression, every part of a perfect culinary experience is an obsession so many chase and so few achieve. Interestingly enough, it is something they do because they are driven to, not for money or fame, but because of the pursuit of perfection itself. It is a passion many of us share and struggle to achieve in a world where shipping a game often means compromising on our ideal vision. Brenda Brathwaite Romero explores this world and takes from it lessons for every designer at every level.
