The bare faced, uncomfortable truth

What I am about to say is going to be majourly controversial, and many of you will probably call it unfair and call me names. But I think many of you secretly know there's an element of truth in it, but you'd never ever tell.

Homebrew, and by that I mean software developed for systems where there are measures to prevent it, is, on the whole, a messy, annoying pile of crap. Now, I don't mean all homebrew, but when there's a sudden rush of it, fear the worst.

The main problem is, most so-called hombrew, is in fact a port. And the homebrewers who churn out port after port generally put very little effort into each one, as soon as it's on screen and controllable, they release it.

Other times, people who know nothing about making games, decide it's a good idea to leap in at the deep end and produce a 3D action-fantasy RPG with guns and zombies set in a massive free form world.

You've all seen all this crap. But noone ever says any homebrew sucks ever, jsut because it's free.

Grow up. If it sucks, it sucks. So say it.

Homebrew is awesome, Dickheads like you who think they have something to say but just spout crap and clutter up the internet with lame blogs suck.
