I can't wait until the first wave of projects are finished and released and 90% of the games absolutely stink. It was a neat little idea at first but I can see far too much tripe getting greenlighted because people were busy getting caught up in some faux revolution.
Next time you complain there's another CoD that the media is deliriously fawning over, and the front pages are chocka with little but, remember your post.
The ONLY projects being funded are those that people want to see brought to completion. It's not our place to argue the ones that make it or don't. People who claim to love making games, are going to be able and eager to continue to do so. I don't see the problem, other than maybe, with a creative industry whose standard bearers are reluctant to promote creativity.
Kickstarter exists and is seeing success, for a reason, and as a response. Similar to one of the commenters in the front page post, I would agree and mention, that this is at least in part in keeping with the founding of the commercial software industry...Again, where's the problem.
