ATTN SPACE LARPER: CHECK YOURSELF

"I am not a destroyer of companies. I am a liberator of them! The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit."

- Gordon Gekko, Wall Street

By the way, his trip to space reportedly cost $30 Million dollars. That he's on Kickstarter is both offensive and outright hilarious. What a douche.

My first tip-off that he was a douche was the house.  Also maybe Ultima IX.

Wow, this was a pleasant surprise.

To play a bit of Devil's Advocate, I kind of get what he was saying in the article you linked - that it's hard to train or teach good developers, because the really creative types already have more focused roles. Really though, he should be looking in the mirror when he says it. Ultima 8 and 9 pretty much killed any respect I had for him as a developer 20 years ago, and what's he done since?

As far as the Kickstarter thing goes, I fully agree with you that someone like Garriot using it to get investors for a pet project he could fund all by himself comes across really badly. Why the hate on the idea of true Indy developers using it though? Seems to me its a viable way of getting a project made without getting stuck attached to  a publisher.

Edit for serious content: I understand the hate against Garriot using kickstarter, but I don't get the hate against indies in general.

Garriott shouldn't be able to get investors fucking anywhere. If he wants to stay in gaming he should be spending his own millions. He has to prove himself again, which he'll never EVER be able to do. Because he's not a game designer. He's a leech. I don't know why any investor would touch him.

It wasn't hate against indies. It was hate for the idea of video games on Kickstarter. I simply don't like it as a platform for funding videogames. It's also too easy to get away with a total scam, even moreso than a physical product.

Edit: To add more - YES, I'M A GAMING INVESTOR OH MR. GARRIOTT YOU WANT MORE MONEY? I'LL JUST IGNORE THE 30M YOU BANKED FROM YOUR PREVIOUS ROLE WHERE YOU ALMOST TANKED THE US ARM OF A COMPANY AND DELIVERED ONE OF THE WORST AAA MMOGS OF ALL TIME AND THEN SUED THEM. LET ME JUST OPEN MY WALLET FOR YOU. HURRR DURRRRRRR.

I think the rattail and Ultima VIII should have been the first fucking clue.
