GAME FACES: Electronic Arts-Tiburon employees
Joe Stallings, 35

College: Georgia Tech, bachelor of science

Job: Associate producer

Most Fun Playing: Oddworld Stranger's Wrath. Some games transcend "computer entertainment" and become something more ... post-modern pop art maybe? This is one of the those games. The artwork, visual environments, script and just sheer creativity evident in the design are stunning.
Astrid Glende, 30

College: University of Koblenz (Germany), bachelor of computer science; University of Georgia, master's in artificial intelligence

Job: Software engineer (working on Madden football for next generation consoles)

Advice: Don't rely on your course work. Work on game projects (even if they are small) to get experience. It is hard work, but what you get out of it is quite rewarding.
Nick Zuccarello, 30

College: East Central College (Union, Mo.), associate of art

Job: Next Gen 3D Character artist

Gaming Tip: None. "I always get my butt kicked playing Madden and Tiger Woods golf.
Scott Nagy, 23

College: University of Florida, computer science

Job: Software engineer

Best Part of Job: Seeing games I've developed on the shelf and hearing people talk about playing games I've worked on. Hearing that someone had fun playing something you made is really rewarding.
Seth Christie, 25

College: Clemson University, master's in computer science

Job: Software engineer

Favorite Gaming Accessory: Nintendo Power Glove
