So i Hate Unity
syflexer (480)

The reason behind me hating unity is that there really isn't much programming when you use unity its more just dragging and dropping assets you get from a store i will admit tho it still does take effort to make games with unity but i still don't think they deserve the credit people give them <also ignore the repl>

Some professional games are made there (ksp) but I get it now it feels like everyone wants higher quality repls but that's hard without a game engine

@Codemonkey51 i have been using unity for a bit now and i literally haven't done a single bit of programing and haven't needed to do any

You need to know programming to make a good game, even with Unity... right?

Well, all the professional games out their have programming required, well... not anymore

I agree with you. Making games has become easier and easier, and programming in games is becoming easier an easier. Like, I'm not going to pursue game dev in the future, so this doesn't really affect me, but I still think this is bad to all game devs out there who know how to code. Game design needs to be harder to master. Maybe a steeper learning curve

I agree. The problem is that people expect much higher quality games now. Using a game engine feels kind of like cheating, but pure programming a big game is very difficult. It's a no-win situation.

@HenryZelonka1 Well using a game engine is kinda a must.

1) Use Unity or Unreal - I guess that's okay, but you at least must know some programming. I don't like those mobile companies like Voodoo that make thousands of dollars on ad revenue off their cheap games. They taking up all the space!!

2) Develop your own game engine - that's what most big game companies do, but we're not big game companies...

True. I probably would download Unity anyway, but my computer doesn't have a lot of space on it.

@HenryZelonka1 yeah... I can't run unity on my laptop due to the same problem, and it's just really slow. I need to use my family's desktop
