EA's Ian Milham gives Grandma the gift of awesomeness
And the fantastic depiction of Grandma wielding a 211-V Plasma Cutter was only the beginning.
Ian assures Grandma that her apparent love of survival horror games is not at all complete without the addition of Dead Space. Sure, she loved Resident Evil. Sure, she loved Fear. Sure, she nearly swerved off the road when I told her the new iteration of Fatal Frame wasn't coming stateside. But the man worked hard on Dead Space. He worked hard specifically for people who love getting the shit scared out of them as they waltz their controller down another corridor painted with flickering light. People like Grandma. Who are we to deny Grandma the pleasure of surround-sound induced nightmares? Who are we, he would surely argue, to prevent her from seeing mangled and terrifying hell-creatures ripping her game-manifest body to pieces?
And who can argue with that, really.
So Ian sent Grandma the above drawing.
And also this:
Grandma was honored, thrilled, and honestly a little perplexed.
But what made her the most excited..
She's already on chapter 3 :)
Ian, thank you. That was fantastic. Grandma insists on playing it in the dark with the volume cranked up.
Grandma: "Tell him.. I don't know, ..tell him it's harder to be scared when I know these things were made by a big sweetheart. Or is that too corny? Shit, I don't know what to say. Tell him THANK YOU! And ask him where I get the saw thingy!"
