I loved reading the Polygon interview a few weeks back. The whole thing was excellent, but this may have been my favorite quote.

"We were going to make this online universe where people are going to be able to sit on their couch and play games with people from the other side of the world...It was going to be this great communal experience. Everybody was going to realize that we were all just one shared humanity, and look, there's gonna be an outbreak of world peace. What it actually turned into was a bunch of frat boys teabagging one another and calling each other names. So I think we can do a lot better."

I can already see a little bit of this in the way the ARG plays out. It forces people to cooperate and work together, and everyone has at least a little bit of weight to pull. Color me VERY EXCITED.
