Comment Not publishers--the studios themselves! (Score 2, Insightful) 48

It seems the current game industry business model is starting to break down. All they talk about are how publishers are struggling. Why give publishers a tax break when you can get all the really artistic games a push directly by subsidizing studios themselves? Fuck the publishers altogether--the vast majority of people who have a computer have the internet. The internet is the new publisher.

Subsidizing publishers is encouraging their mindless hunt for mass appeal--which has nothing to do with creativity.

Make it right before you make it faster.
