This video was made in the wee hours of the morning, with Barlog coming off a weeks-long international press tour. He's exhausted, at the end of his rope, and this is the culmination of a half decade of high-stress triple-A dev work.
As a man who does shed a tear on fairly regular occasion, I love this.
Here's what Barlog wrote about releasing the video, which I also love.
First, sorry about the quality. Shot on my macbook webcam.
So, I thought a lot about whether or not to upload but then I thought of what my son, Helo, is going through right now. He doesn't want us to be around when he is sad, opting to run in another room and yell at us if we try to come in. It has been important to us to let him know that it is OK to be sad, it is OK to cry. There is nothing to hide. I thought I would try to set a good example and show him that papa can cry in front of the world, or at least the 50 people who end up watching this. :) This is for you, Helo. Papa loves you.
