Gaming With Uncle Lester: “Developers Make Too Much Money”… Really?!

Dumb headlines like these give game journalists everywhere a bad name.
Gaming With Uncle Lester

Uncle Lester may live in a van down by the river, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a gamer at heart. Always on the lookout for an unsecured Wi-Fi connection to use before being runoff, his quest for gamer glory continues!

Hello and welcome to the seventh edition of Gaming with Uncle Lester! I’m your host of today’s show, Uncle Lester. Ya know it's sad that people give the church so much crap. I was talking about needing a place to stay in the local Dunkin Donuts this morning and a kind preacher said I could park in the church lot for a few days if I would help him with an attendance project this Sunday. How nice is that? Free Wi-Fi and all I need to do is keep track of how many boys come to service. Piece of cake!

While I was sitting in my van later, sipping on some slightly rancid coffee, I read an article from a wanna-be news site about how the problem with the game industry is that developers make too much money. I can't believe some asshat wants to claim how much of an expert he is by writing about the inner workings of the game industry yet clearly knows nothing. I may be on the road and viewed as a hobo now, but I was a somebody back in the day. I still have quite a few friends that are inside the game industry and I can say one thing for certain in regards to this dude's views - they're all complete bullshit.

Personally, I think he' just an asshat trying to create a controversial article for a crappy website in the hopes of generating tons of righteous hatred like I'm currently spewing in an attempt to capitalize on the ad income that a bajillion hits will generate. That's why I'm going to pull the same pansy trick he is... I'm not going to name my source, or the article. Unlike him though, I will dare you to tell 95% of anyone working in games that they've destroyed the industry because they make too much money.

If you do, please have an ambulance standing by first as a precaution to one of only two likely scenarios that will ensue. They're going to go into cardiac arrest from laughing too hard at the sheer audacity of your statement or they're going to plant there boot so far up your ass that you're going to need a general surgeon to remove it from your spleen. Personally? I'm hoping for option B. Either way, give me a heads up because I want to get pictures.

That’s it for today’s show but tune in tomorrow for more from your salacious savant of the gaming world, Uncle Lester! Be sure to follow me on Twitter at @UncleLesterWIFI too or send me an email with your gamer topic at [email protected]!
