Markus "Notch" Persson, the creator of Minecraft and all-around high-profile indie game developer, guest starred on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night. The two gents talked about the games Notch plays – apparently he's into everything, but he really enjoys Grand Theft Auto – and the "games" Ferguson plays, such as Mario Kart. According to Notch, that one deserves the air quotes.
Ferguson said he looked up Notch online and discovered one of the industry's darkest secrets – the gaming world is catty.
"It seems like there's quite a lot of bitchiness in your world," he said. "Quite a lot of people are like, 'I hate him, he created Minecraft! How dare he not be me.'" Notch agreed, but said he too was irrationally protective of the games he plays. C'est la vie.
If you missed Notch on The Late Late Show, don't worry – he was easy to miss because he pointedly wasn't wearing a fedora – there's a full clip of the interview here.
