What kind of attitude is that. It depends on your definition of “great games”. If you’re interested in building a game like Star Craft, or Halo, then you’ll just have to…
1.) find a team of a 50-100 programmers and designers
2.) invest about 2 years of development time, and a real pretty penny.
3.) and be very, very, patient with the whole process.
IF GAME BUILDING WAS EASY, EVERYONE WOULD BE DOING IT. It takes time and effort, just like anything else. But game building has definitely become easier because of tools like Blender. I’m no programmer, but I’ve successfully built simple games with Blender.
If you really want to build something, start small. If you can’t figure something out, ask your local geek (that’s what I do), they’re usually excited to have normal people talk to them, so they love to help.
If you really aren’t that determined or patient, take the other road…wait for others to build it, then enjoy or criticize it.
