I noticed something a few years back. When game developers greet each other, we hug. Not all of us, and certainly not all the time, but a great many of us do. It’s not just w-2-m or w-2-w either. Men hug when they greet one another. A handshake seems, perhaps, too formal. Since thinking about this a few GDCs ago, I’ve watched to test my theory, and it seems that it’s incredibly common.
We hug each other when we greet. I like that about us.
