• • Armin Shimerman Interview, Oz Comic Con Melbourne 2012
Michael Irving, Capsule Computers BioShock | [Armin Shimerman:] The monologues for Andrew Ryan were just incredible. I imagine that’s why gamers who play Bioshock are particularly taken with him. It’s an Ayn Rand point of view, and that appeals to a lot of people, especially young people. I was a huge Ayn Rand fan when I was in my teens and twenties, as you get older you sort of lose that, but perhaps a lot of gamers are in that age range. It still appeals to me, when I revisit Ayn Rand, there’s a lot of it that’s appealing, I just don’t believe it’s the be-all and end-all as I once did, when I was a teenager.
