I'm not sure what's more hilarious about the rant. The patronising assumption that us gamer's are somehow all sheeple and that we're all going to blindly back every veteran kickstarter that going without assessment, or that the money would somehow magically end up going to more "worthy" projects if not to them.
I don't know about anyone else, but I don't have a secret kickstarter fund I put money into every month. I only back projects I'm interested in (so far the only one being Project eternity). Albeit I've bought many of Mr Molyneux's games over the years and on the whole have enjoyed them (flaws and all) I honestly have zero interest in god games these days so I'm not feeling inclined to fund his Kickstarter. Fond memories of Elite, but there was nothing of any substance to David Braben's Kickstarter pitch and that's not enough to make me feel like opening my wallet.
