^ Dunno why my comment's getting so many downvotes. This is yet another of the endless posts on gamedev every single day asking the same question that has been asked here. It's not even a good question.

 

"But I wanna know what the guys on gamedev think!" Well here, I looked it up on gamedev for you.

Seriously, to everyone reading this, the next time you want to know where to start with anything, be it programming, cooking or mud wrestling, just look it up


In Topic: Do any commercial games use the free sprites?

Hidden In Plain Sight, the XBLA/Ouya game uses free art, and it's pretty successful.

In Topic: Top Or Bottom?

I expected a very different thread given the title.


In Topic: Can you talk the programming techno talk?

SE/SO is where highly intelligent programmers go to get back at all the kids who bullied them in school.  If you happen upon SE/SO to find an answer to a question, or look up some other bit of material you'll probably miss this point.  Those that frequent it regularly though, have probably seen the divide in almost elementary school-level antics and drama that swirl within the moderators and top users. 

 

It is of no misunderstanding that the SE/SO veterans are good at what they do and highly intelligent, however most are condescending in their answers, as some even to the point of harassing or insulting - for this, while I browse SE/SO, I very rarely ever post - to avoid some sex-deprived DBA for laughing at me because I didn't use the word tuple instead of trying to describe an unordered set. 

 

A good example of this is Jon Skeet, the often-sung superstar of SO.  He knows his shit, I enjoy the books and blogs that he's written, he's very precise with his answers and his knowledge of C# is probably unmatched.  However, he's a complete dick.  Time and time again I've viewed him giving answers on SO that were, for-lack-of-a-better-word, cruel.  It is for this, that while his skill in undeniable, if he ever walked into my office for an interview I'd walk him back out as that level of solo heroism has no place in enterprise development. 

 

You find this a lot on SE/SO, and if you plan to play with the big-dogs I'd suggest learning the academia portion of computer science just as much as the applied portion - that and a bit of Shakespearean satire.

 

I've sincerely never experienced anything but friendliness on stack overflow, yet I often see comments like this. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.
