I wonder if Dean will consider getting a Twitter account so he can do some tweeting for his fans.

And he still beat Orlando Bloom in "Acting An Adventure-Game Typical Hero Chart"!

Excellent interview. Seeing an old friend after years is so fantastic. I think Gabriel series is one of the beast advanture games ever made. By the way, does he have a facebook account?

Very interesting interview, but one question remains unanswered. Is Dean the Dream still looking for a jumpshot after all these years?

Excellent interview! I loved this game, and Mr. Erickson's portrayal of Gabriel Knight is a big reason for that. I haven't played it in a few years but I always think about it from time to time, especially when I come across elements from the game in real life, like cuckoo clocks and german sausage. I really wish they would expand upon this character in more games or books or movies.

Great Interview! What about the Will Binder-Interview that is mentioned in the "related articles"-section? It seems, it´s not online, yet. Anything to come?

I think Dean did a wonerful jod as G. Night. I really think he should do another game as G. Night. Thanks Dean for making that game stand out in my mind.

Nice to hear from Dean Erickson who did a fantastic job as Gabriel Knight in the second part of the series. I have played this game few times through and it is just amazing. It has got great acting, story, music and places. This game has gotten to my mind: various images from different events of the game, the music haunts me sometimes.. I actually feel this is like a movie that I can experience over and over again without losing interest, unlike other games lose interest after playing once through. I can't wait to play it again after I have read the Sins of the Fathers book.. Absolutely the best adventure game! Dean did a great job and if it will happen that he acts in some production, I would look to that with great interest. You were cool as Gabriel Knight!
