10 Weird Hobbies of Video Game Developers

Studio: Runic Games

Notable Games: Torchlight II

Weird Hobby: RC Planes

Max Schaefer is the CEO of Runic Games, the makers of Torchlight II. It's a pretty hectic job that keeps him plenty busy, but on the weekends Max finds time to let his spirit soar through his favourite hobby; flying model planes with radio control.

Now, it may not be as complicated as flying a real airplane, but there's a serious level of complexity handling the aerodynamics and controls for one of these things. It's not a cheap hobby either by any means, even a starter plane can cost upwards of $1,000. It takes a lot of trust in yourself to have faith you won't crash that fragile little plane into a tree.
