2. Re: Out of the Blue Feb 26, 2013, 13:34 Rigs
Indeed...I've said the same numerous times when asked why I don't get 'into the industry' that I'm always talking about. Precisely because I don't want it to become a job. It's like when I would help anyone that called me with their computer problems, it got to the point that people were calling at 3am about every and any little thing, preferring not to learn how to fix the problem on their own, just rely on me to do it. It got so I was sick of messing with hardware and Windows in general, even on my own system, that I finally put my foot down and said, 'Enough!' and now I don't help nearly as much as I used to and I made it very clear why. Like with any hobby, it can get to the point where you get burnt out on it. And if it's your livelihood, which means you can't just take a break from it and come back later, then you have a serious problem...Not quite what the article is talking about but still...

Also, this is why I don't bash on game devs for games that didn't live to their potential, such as the recent Aliens: Colonial Marines debacle. No matter what came of it, someone obviously put some serious heart and soul into the game. Just because it came together badly doesn't mean people didn't work their asses off to make it. As I said when the reviews started coming in, I feel bad for some of the devs because this can be a soul crusher...
