Yeah dude.  The OP is being E\N because some dude didn't like his idea.  I say, if you want to make a top-down shooter, make a top-down shooter.

What's with the angst?  I don't buy "you shouldn't think about this" as a counter-argument.

Are you just here to make yourself heard?

When you make a game it's going to be an expression of you. Worrying about all of the other shit is just going to slow you down. That's all.

I agree with the first part.  I don't think that precludes thinking about how the best way to do that is, which seemed to be the intent of the question about self-expression.

It's ok.  I've learned an important lesson from this. Smiley


<EDIT>You do want to express yourself, don't you?



My prescription for games: more flair.</EDIT>

As to art and inspiration and making games...the WHY is always more important than the WHAT.  That is Jon's point, I think, and I agree 100%.

Hahahaha, perfect!  I think that wraps this whole mess up quite nicely.
