no game made is "easy"

Was fun reading on indiegamer forums the usual newbie talking about the game made with RPG Maker XP, Aveyond, defining it as “easy money”.
I think that is one of the biggest offenses you can do to a developer. I know, before I was like him when first I saw the various casual games “bah crap games” I thought.
“I can make one in 1 month” and so on. I know because I was thinking that myself too.
THEN when I started trying seriously to make them… oh well! even if you use a middleware solution, is still quite HARD to come up with an interesting story, and bugs can be present even using a script system (like plot holes or worse blocks so you are stuck and can’t go on anymore).
So only because someone used a toolkit or a gamemaker tool, don’t think is “EASY”. Nothing is easy as it seems 🙂
