I Want a Faster Horse

““If a company only listens to what customers _think_ they need, it won’t be able to innovate. As Henry Ford said, ‘If I’d asked people what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse.’””:http://www.37signals.com/svn/posts/651-how-opinionated-companies-get-customers-to-live-without-floppy-drives-assigned-seats-credit-cards-etc This applies to game design, too. Maybe even moreso, considering the vocal minority of hardcore gamers that demand better graphics, bigger worlds, longer play time, higher difficulty, etc. Good one for my one-liner library: stop asking for a faster horse, damn you!
