Fuck fuck and fuck again. I feel like that too man and I hate this. Ryan was really someone special, he was like a close friend even though I never met him. Seeing him go will leave a huge hole in my heart. I miss you M. Davis, you brought a lot of joy in my life.
I would like to see on which platform most indies make their money. I don't think it's on a Nintendo console, but I could be wrong. Like I said I'm really curious on how things will develop from now on.
@vince_kupo: I don't think anyone doubts that they're good for smaller developers and indy games. However, saying that this is bad for Nintendo is a dubious claim. They already advertise their games on television, print, and web sites. They already receive ample coverage from web sites and the few print publications that still exist. The number of Nintendo published games sold solely due to a Let's Play video where the viewer has zero knowledge of the game beforehand is significantly lower than many of these other games people list.
This is a bit of an overreaction followed by an over-inflated sense of self-importance.
I was about to write something to explain a little more what I meant, but I guess I'm gonna wait and see on that one. The only thing I'm gonna say is this, indies are direct competitors to Nintendo, because while people are playing indies or smaller studios games, they are not playing Nintendo games. If Nintendo wants to manage their own advertising by cutting LPers,fine, but they should be aware that they will have a tough competition with indies and the free advertisement they get from Youtubers, We are moving into really interesting times. I'm curious how the years to come will pan out..
