It can get intense. Especially for the creator of Fez. I sympathize with him however, I have giant set backs in life all the time too and its really disheartening. I could compare so many of the things that fucked up for him to so many things that fucked up for me.

Most indie designers sound like hippies to me.

That's because indie devs tend to be obnoxious neckbeards

I'm not touching this movie

Like, the Braid guy essentially said "I hate the fact everyone loves my game, because they love it for the wrong reason so now im going to cry my life away"

like, fuck dude. I understand the whole "well i had a cool message" but cheer the fuck up! Unless people think your message is to resurrect the third Reich, chill the fuck out.

Yeah, my understanding is basically any documentary will take somebody's opinion or feelings about something and edit it in such a way as to make it seem much more extreme than it is. Like, the Braid dude probably isn't that pretentious, they just probably thought the documentary would be better if they focused on that one aspect of what he was saying.

Docs do show a certain view of people... Unless its doing an in depth character study, you really do gotta take into consideration that you're hearing bits and pieces of a whole story. Honestly? They all sounded like artists to me. They sounded no different from the kids that I would be around in art school.
