Scott Johnson from FrogPants Studios had the chance to sit down with the one and only Chris Metzen to talk about all the things we wanted to know about his past, current things and what his future looks like. For this writer and Blizzard fan girl this was super emotional for me to listen to. My admiration and respect for Chris has grown even more since listening to this; He was very candid about how he started to feel like he was out of steam. His talk on anxiety and even having panic attacks really tugs at the heart strings along with his fear of failure caring such great weight on him over time. For over 20 years he lived the all-in Blizzard life and he realized that sometimes, you just have to walk away.
After listening to this, we can see why it was time for him to hang up his nerd hat and just enjoy his life with his family. Pull up a chair, get comfy and have a good listen:
