    Good read! I cannot agree more with the beginners ego. This goes for any project regardless of industry, if you plan on making the next WoW, you're in for a treat as it takes a lot more than simply making a few characters and a little map to make it work.

    I honestly believe in order to defeat the beginners ego, you need to acknowledge you're a beginner. Your first few projects won't be perfect. They're there to learn from and take to your next project. Eventually you'll get better, but everyone has to start somewhere

    Totally agree. I've only been making games for 3 years and everyone keeps asking me about this "big game" I am working on... I'd rather practice on smaller/dumb games that fail at my masterpiece.

    I tell a look of newbies the same thing.
