Just read an interesting article about the use of a proprietary Lisp
variant in the game "Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy":


Covers the pros and cons of using Lisp. Among the cons:

"A single programmer (who could easily be one of the top ten Lisp
programmers in the world) wrote GOAL. While he called his Lisp
techniques and programming practices 'revolutionary,' others referred
to them as 'code encryption,' since only he could understand them."

Amusing :)
