Lorne Lanning, creator of Oddworld in an interview with Polygon:

I’m a kid who learned how to read from Sesame Street, not from school, so I believe in the power of media to make a better world.

I had an eerily similar thought this morning. I’m a kid who learned how to type from AIM, not from school, so I believe in the power of experiential learning to make a better world. This is something I believe to be at the heart of video games.
