Do you really understand the value of "soft skills" as a game developer? Here are stories of proven practices in the trenches where the "fuzzy" stuff helped to get things done. Making a better game, by being effective in your communication, effective in your listening, in your problem solving and other valuable skills. Being aware of your team, your individual peers, what their objectives are and getting to the bottom of it. The "fuzzy" stuff can help you be a better teammate, it can help you through the tough times, in the end you will enjoy the ride and be proud of what you've accomplished along with others.
