    I always love to hear what Adam has to say. I agree fully. I am an aspiring game designer/creator and such and things like indie games and events can inspire a multitude of people to create what they have stored in their mind. I remember playing Braid and I never could have imagined the creativity and ingenuity a simple scroller could have. This surely isn't something that a single person like me could create, but it sure is something that inspires. Even something like Plants vs. Zombies was aw-inspiring.

    Damn Sessler,

    You can't have games like Braid playing in the background. I had to watch the video three times to hear what you had to say. I'm distracted pretty easi...oh look! A Butterfly!

    I can kinda see where you coming from with this. Indie games always seem to just bring out this whole "Wait? We can do that?" aspect to them. Like LittleBigPlanet. That's not really Indie anymore but when it was first annouced people were stunned over what all you could do in it. And, idk if you said this, but it gets new blood out there into the industry to keep things fresh considering how meh most old franchises are getting nowadays.
