That's not an argument, and amazingly ignorant of the fact that these people are well fucking aware that this is the norm.

as someone who has been through a lifetime of work crunches, it can't be overstated how good free meals are for morale and motivation.

bragging about it on twitter seems silly, but whatever.

It's a reality of the industry that isn't going away. The tweet wasn't a good idea but condemning the studio for it is over the top. Those meals are some of the only breaks these teams get. The teams know they have to crunch and look forward to stuff like this. Bragging about it is dumb but a team that didn't have catered dinners during crunch would be absolutely beaten down.

I work in the same building as some gaming developers, and I come in early, and I see them taking a smoke break, looks like they have been here for hours already. When I go home at 5:30 I see them smoking, which tells me they will not be leaving anytime soon.

They work so hard. No joke, they look like they work hard.

This isn't just limited to game development either. I'm a developer (not a game developer, just run-of-the-mill embedded application development), and even our teams have crunch time. I've never worked on a product that came leisurely strolling through to the finish line, where every developer was putting in only 40 hour weeks at the very end. Marketing can always find a way to add new functionality or pull in the release schedule if it looks like things are moving too smoothly...

These responses just sound like people who have no software experience of any kind, pretending that they know better. At least the studio is feeding their employees - I'm lucky if my boss brings in some donuts if I'm working over the weekend.
