Why not just hire writers? They're like "idea guys" except better.

Even non-game developers don't like idea guys.

Also has been said a billion times, but if you're good enough to make your own game, you already have a ton of your own ideas you want to do, so doing someone else's doesn't make a lot of sense, unless they've driven up to your place with a dumptruck full of money.

if programming is so easy, why don't you just learn how to program instead of bitching about how nobody appreciates your hidden genius

As a "kind" of idea guy, let me tell you:

Idea are easy, execution is hard.

If you wonder why there is so many clones and derivatives works, that's why. Idea and the execution of idea are tied up, an idea is a problem, problem need to be solve, solving is hard and putting it in a form is costly. And by solving I mean the idea isn't sufficient in itself, you need to find it's structure, to understand the resource cost and planning necessary to achieve it.

Most idea are formless and overscoped, but more importantly unproven. The unproven part is important, because:
1. People expect the same standard for new idea than old idea, idea guy tend to marry their idea and don't consider anything BUT that standard, they end up doing nothing because too low.
2. Finding resource resource is expensive, especially because of 1.

Solution? DIY and start small and focused. Build it overtime.
For game the most important things is learn2program (c)

As a "kind" of idea guy, let me tell you:
