Steven SpielbergSteven Spielberg signed a contract with EA for quite a few titles so he was pretty much obliged. He was already involved with Medal of Honor, but this was indeed the first one he pitched himself.
Boom Blox, which blends block-building and block-busting with memorable characters, was "the first idea that jumped into my head." He drew inspiration from his family — he has seven children, the youngest one 11 — and observes, "There is a continental divide in my own house between what I play and the kind of games my kids play."
"I wanted something that would bring the family together in the same room, standing shoulder to shoulder with four different controllers."
As a parent, he strictly monitors the games in his home. "There are games that are taboo. And I won't have them on the premises. I don't want my kids saying, 'How come Dad is playing that and we can't?' "
