Standardized credits? The IGDA would like that

IgdaAfter the conspicuous absence of 50 Rockstar Vienna employees in the Manhunt 2 credits, the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) has released a draft of their Game Crediting Guide, a document intended to help standardize the way contributers to any piece of interactive entertainment software are recognized for their work.

The guide sets forth, in great detail, the rules for who is worthy of a place in the game’s credits, how they should be listed, how the credits are to be included in the game, etc.

This is a good call on the part of the IGDA, because it not only forces the recognition of those whose hard work factored into the final production, but it is also a step towards further legitimizing videogames in modern popular culture.
