Just like actors mostly dont watch their own movies
Since they know every aspect of the scripted experience
They will know whats coming and all that. The directors /priosducer might admire the work but i doubt they also watch, it is more about what the public thinks.

In gaming their is no way devs finish the games, they know every aspect of the game whats the point, they if anything get more enjoyment seeing the gamers playing the game, but might no stick around to much because they might begin to question what they could of done but dev tine ran out.

Playing your own game or watching your own movie is like spankin it to a picture of yourself.

Some do.

After all, for some multiplayer games there are those play with the devs nights.

They certainly play them while making them. Never heard of a dev that didn't.

I am talking mainly about single player focus games

Just because someone makes something, doesn't make them a master or the best at it.

That's the flaw in your logic. Even as far as single player experiences go, who develops the best strategies? Who discovers exploits and glitches? Who gets the best speedrun times? The players.

I do art/gametesting/level design for a very small company called Tangerine Pop, and played our last game, Dungeon Run (Gauntlet style) through to completion with all four characters.

It was so much fun. So much work was put into it. No idea for major PS3 developers.

I could imagine other indie developers doing the same for their PSN games...
