David Goldfarb is a game design veteran whose credits include Payday 2, Mirror’s Edge, Battlefield 3, and other titles in the so-called AAA space. Before he embarked on a career that’s now 15 years old, though, he was a big fan of baseball simulations, which currently occupy a growing niche in the industry.
“I’ve been playing baseball games since Strat-o-Matic and Earl Weaver baseball, over 30 years, I think,” says Goldfarb, who has been rooting for the New York Mets since the age of 6 or 7. “I also had the Pursue the Pennant tabletop game, which quickly morphed into the electronic version. I suspect I spent the most time with Micro League Baseball. Up until OOTP, anyway. I just love the game.”
