I like to dabble in each engine, I treat it as a curiosity and not something serious, however it is scary how easy this has all become these days. My general Impression of Unity is “how many games are just going to fall out of this engine”… it is like “developers” have put little to no effort into a game and released it. My impression of Unity has always been this cheap **** engine which creates tat, there are no standards and the developers are as useless as I am. I bet I could spend two weeks making like Stranded Deep for example, release it, screw people out of money and… whatever.
I don’t want this future for UE and I feel like this is the way the engine is going and it makes me sad. I don’t want to praise the PS3 in any way, I’m sure Sony defending the Cell Processor was all PR, but I agree with them in some way. We need snobbery in ART, everyone shouldn’t have easy access to make **** because otherwise we end up with what Unity has become… a joke. Sony kept saying they only wanted the best developers and they would learn cell, that isn’t great in hindsight, I think it is half of the truth however.
Access and the tools shouldn’t become too easy.
I’m so sick of the flood of **** Unity games, I don’t even bother with them any more. I watch the game jams and while I respect peoples time, they’re all **** and will lead to nowhere. It is like the passion has gone out of game development and it has just become this tool to making money, get quick success and be millionaires overnight :\
I don’t think Unreal copying Unity will lead to a good future for it, Unreal needs to be premium, otherwise it just gains the reputation of like the £1/$99 stores that Unity has.
