Not sure where I am going with this but, out of curiosity.

Has anyone thought of making a "good" game on their own? I know it's easy to bitch how shit games are (cash cows), but to make your own is quite difficult because you can't please every mouth that's out there.

I have bought/played tons of games in the past 4 years or so, and I get bored to death. Some are really fun.

Instead of playing now, which puts me into depression. I have been doing a fun "little" project. Learning/exploring c++/C#, doing some art. Basically boring stuff. If I ever do make something I would want it to be free and "fun" (hopefully).

I was wondering if anyone has the same appeal or idea.

Dustforce, Little Inferno, VVVVV shit like that.  The Indie game market is saturated but there's some real good shit out there if you know where to look.

It's impossible to create anything decent alone in this market.

Marketing and advertising would be hard solo I'd imagine.  Dnno

It's impossible to be good at coding, art, sound (and/or voice), 3d modeling, game design and all the other skills required to create a decent game, all at the same time. You need to create a team which has the exact same vision as you do, and that's the hardest part I think.

Marketing and advertising is just money. We've seen the worst fucking shit being overhyped.

I dunno my dick gets hard from thinking of proving that you can solo make something that a team of 10+ do.

Advertising is meh; good shit sets on fire, while bad shit sets itself on fire :)
