Tale of Tales » Interview with Frank Lantz
Great interview with Lantz, expanding on his "games aren't media" angle and some other interesting points on aesthetics; totally marred by Michaël Samyn's trolling of a comment thread (on his *own* company's blog). Still, read the top half!

This choice may have significant negative impact on learnability, pleasantness of use, and adoption." Yes.
