Regardless, the one person who wouldn’t make that argument is Tim Schafer himself, who, in an interview with GamesIndustry, which followed up on his well-deserved BAFTA Fellowship award, said that he still thinks his best days are ahead of him.
"This sort of award feels like something you get when you're done, but I still feel like I'm working towards figuring out how to make games. Slowly, over time. I don't think I've made my best game yet, and I feel like that's something I want to work towards."
Right now, Double Fine is working on Psychonauts 2, which no doubt has most of his attention, but he’s also been looking at some new stuff in the meantime, specifically in the indie game scene:
"There are still things that are really interesting, like the Nemesis system in Shadow of Mordor, and there are other things [in AAA] that I feel like I haven't done before, or mechanics I haven't seen before. So I still think there's plenty of innovation in AAA games—it's just that it's still being led by the indie games.”
No one would be sad to think he’s still got more great games in that head of his. We’re just waiting to see what draws it out!
