Kickstarter Broke the Internet

The League of Extraordinary Gamers gives us their thoughts on Kickstarter and if it’s a good or bad thing for the gaming industry.
I have my own feelings about what Kickstarter has done for the gaming community. What do the rest of you think? I’d really like to see a discussion about this.
Heck, if the topic goes well, I might even hand out a prize to someone, but I want to know if you think that Kickstarter is hurting or helping the gaming world, and you gotta tell me why.
As always, keep the discourse civil, please.


From the article:

So, this article from Gizmodo has been circulating a lot this week. And by a lot, I mean I ran into it in no less than four different industry forums or webpages, all posted up by people that weren’t directly communicating in the other conversations. Could be that one started it, the rest carried it elsewhere, and the next thing we know it’s pandemic. I’m not going to get into a blog vs. blog war of words. What I want to address really is a lot of the conversation points that have come up in the discussions about Kickstarter.
