Technically, I guess, that'd be Plano -- if we're talking about Gearbox, which CBS Evening News's Mark Strassmann does in the piece that aired last night and follows after the jump. And Grapevine, since he mentions GameStop. And Mesquite, if we're talking about id ... though Strassman never mentions the name of the Doom creator, which is moving to Richardson anyhow. Ah, there we go: The Guildhall at Southern Methodist University, subject of this cover story in the paper version of Unfair Park back in the go-go Oughts. Wait. Back up. Gearbox is doling out five-figure bonuses? Why, yes, I do believe I could be a Quality Assurance Tester.

I will give it to this area, the gaming industry gave us a boost in those down economic times. But, it also created situations like Ion Storm and the G.O.D. movement, who matra  "When Its Ready" gave devs such as 3D Realms carte blanche to blow others money with careless abandon and deliver crappy products, which pretty much put PC gaming in the toliet for quite awhile..
