Commenter Crusader1025 ponders why some of the best games are created by development teams that barely qualify as teams in today's Speak-Up on Kotaku.
Half Life was made by 2 people. Minecraft was made by 1. While the best sellers are those who spend billions of dollars on publicity, the games themselves tend to be mediocre at best. I think a good game is made with time, effort, and care. If that happens, the rest just follows.
About Speak-Up on Kotaku: Our readers have a lot to say, and sometimes what they have to say has nothing to do with the stories we run. That's why we have that little box on the front page of Kotaku. You know, the one with "Got something to say?" written in it? That's the place to post anecdotes, photos, game tips and hints, and anything you want to share with Kotaku at large. Just make sure to include #speakup in your comment so we can find it. Every weekday we'll pull one of the best #speakup posts we can find and highlight it here.
