i didnt bother reading the whole stuff until i raged down to write a reply and here it is:
I personaly think that what makes any film, book or game-idea be "worhty", have "dignity" and a right to be made is if the idea/story is original and anti-cliche. I think for amateurs today, the key to breaking into the industry isnt to make superb visuals (movies) and good gameplay (games), but good STORY!
Thats your way in. Because THAT, the STORY, is what critics today are so unhappy about today:
my opinions are mine alone
You people with all your analogies have never written a book or painted a painting have you? You better not take this shit to a writers' forum and expect to impress people.
Do you know what editors are? Do you know what drafts are? What you wrote a 10 page paper in college and got an A and expect people to give a shit? Look, go to a writers' forum and make a post like this about books and when everyone agrees with you get back to me.
