Avenged Sevenfold's M.Shadows talks about the biggest surprise of the game process

M.Shadows recently spoke with Loudwire, you can read an excerpt below:


The band has provided music to video games before and gotten its feet wet in the gaming industry, but as far as being fully engulfed in putting this whole thing together, what was the biggest surprise in terms of the process of going through putting an entire game together?
There’s a lot of surprises. I’m not naive to think I was going to go into this and everything was going to be perfect or that making games is easy. But really realizing, trying to get a few people that are on a project that are all on the same page, it’s tough. Especially people whom have different ideas and when you say a certain word, the guy’s movement feels too stale or stagnant. That means one thing to someone else and the programmer that means something else too. We realized they fixed one little thing and the whole game breaks down in so many ways. You just realize that it’s a real tough process and it gives you tons of respect for people that are making these AAA games and are dealing with hundreds of people on a team and you have to have everyone on the same page with the same goal. It’s mind blowing that a game can even get done. It’s the reason why some games take five years to complete. Our’s took two years to complete. It’s a long, grueling process.
