New Idea guy who thinks he can sit back and throw ideas at people while they work hard
Of course not. I still don't understand what you're trying to find out. If you are just trying to start a heated discussion, this belongs in the Lounge. If you're trying to learn about how to become a game designer, this belongs in the Breaking In forum. If you want to learn about what it really is to be a game designer, this belongs either here or in Breaking Into The Industry. What is it you're trying to accomplish with your question exactly? Are you having discussions with a would-be "idea guy" and trying to figure out how to handle the situation, how to manage the guy? Maybe this belongs in Production / Management.
