This month in Q5, we find out which games make Patrik Méthé, creative director on Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction at Ubisoft Montréal, tick.
What’s the first game that you remember playing?
The first video game I played was Pong. Yes, I’m that old!
What was the last game that you finished?
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. Yes, I was late to the party.
What’s your favourite video game/series of all time?
StarCraft/StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. I’ve played (and still play) way too many hours of both.
What do you think is the most underrated video game of all time?
It’s not necessarily the most underrated, but a game that didn’t receive the love and attention it deserved at the time was Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy. I have great memories of playing this game, and that it was cutting edge at the time it shipped.
What’s the game that you most wish you’d worked on?
Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth. I’m a great fan of the Lovecraft universe and would have had a blast working on it.
