Halo Designer Uses Video Games to Bring Family Closer

What: Dave Candland, interface lead for bigtime games like Halo, answers questions about going to BYU-Idaho and having six kids.

Quote: "Last night I was having a discussion with my seventeen year old son about a game we were both playing, giving each other tips. He had a friend over that started laughing. He says, 'Dude, that’s awesome. I could never talk to my dad like that.'"

Reaction: Despite the potential effects of too many video games on family/social life, you have to admit that this industry provides great opportunities for enriching father and son relationships.


  1. and husband/wife relationships! yay halo!

  2. my favorite part is when they spend six hours at a stretch and then say "we got a lot accomplished today!"
