I think he's right, but at this I won't argue that topic with you, because this was just his opinion, that has in turn lead to a continuous bashing of him over several threads, even including people who has made new accounts just to post insults to him. Bullying is serious, but this form of bullying over nothing is also so pointless that it's stupid. Let guys have opinions.

Not that they're not in it for the money, but that he's saying money shouldn't effect what they're doing in any way at all. I'm in total agreement that money shouldn't be the sole reason for making a game, but it money has a HUGE effect on what a team can do. This whole thing started because someone said that they were having The Chinneseroom make it because they want'd to hold over their fans for their next release and because they wanted to bring in some extra cash so they could work on their next project. Then he came in saying that money was playing no role in the development of their games and that they didn't need any money to make their next release, and then followed by saying that money had no effect on the quality of a game (which, again, to a certain extent is true, but if you have so little money that you can't buy good enough programs and what not and are struggling with money then yes, it can effect it. This especially applies with Amnesia and indie games in general).

I'm not going to read the entire discussion, so judging by that post, you are bashing him just because he thinks that Frictional Games isn't in it for the money. Am I missing something?

Not sure if trolling or...
Either way, I'm just gonna leave this here: http://www.frictionalgames.com/forum/thr...#pid127494
It isn't bullying (at least not the case in this post)...
He says money can't be made from youtube vids containing video games; And if we do make money, we are all a bunch of illegal scumbags. Feels great, huh?
Then I (we) politely explains why we are allowed to make money and how. He refuses to accept the idea that he might be wrong and proceeds by calling me and the others trolls. Great guy, huh?
I personally do make money with my youtube videos. So seeing him constantly bashing this concept without even knowing what the hell he's talking about, is really starting to piss me off.
I don't care if you see it as bullying. If you act like a total douche who has no idea what hes talking about. You will be treated like one.
I am pretty new to this forum, but from the posts I have seen from this guy; I can easily say that I find him to be a stupid, ignorant, stubborn, immature fucking douche bag with a lack of respect.
I'm yet to see where the game developers states that they think we are stealing their content. Most game developers (especially indie game producers) encourages online media of their products. It was youtube that got Amnesia and Frictional Games famous in the first place.
And saying that you can't make money with youtube videos is not an opinion, it's just false facts.
If you think it's bullying to tell someone that they are wrong, when they clearly have no idea what they are talking about. Then i don't think a forum is anything for you.
Have a nice day.
