That's exactly the problem, I was describing. You collect everything, no matter if it's good or bad. Somebody who wants to make money, can produce 10 "games" in much less time that it takes to make one single quality game. And he will be rewarded by you 10 times. You are being manipulated by those people. Isn't there any lower mark, where you would say: "NO!" ?

So, here's the question: 
Which homebrew cart/package do you own, and which of them do you play?

It *should* be all that matters, right. But it's also frustrating to see, how collecting everything is leading to something different. Something that, as a programmer, I don't like.

Have fun!
