Topics I've Started

My biggest hurdle before starting a big project.

27 February 2014 - 11:50 AM

Hi everyone. I have been reading tons of posts on this site for a while and I've been learning a lot from the site and people’s experiences. There are a lot of good do's and don'ts and I want to say thank you. So I figured I would like some feedback or tips on a problem I know I have.


The problem I have is…Always having the hardest time on where to start a big project; mainly when I try to tackle one of my video game projects. There are so many approaches and I over analyze each approach and it prevents me from starting or I just start all over. Once I get going though, there is no stopping me. 


I do/did make flowcharts, lots of documentation, and a lot of other parts that are on paper. Now I just need to make it real.  I feel though if I don’t start in the right spot the rest of project is junk.


What the best way to overcome this bad habit?


If needed I can explain what my game is but I’d figure that every project will have its own specific starting point somewhere.
