Faith in humanity restored! :) You all whiny developers, take notice:
1) you don't need a huge budget to create an awesome game
2) even without super realistic graphics a game can be highly addictive, fun and commercially successful
3) stop worrying about piracy, it's irrelevant, if your game is good enough, if you trust gamers and don't apriori treat them as thieves, gamers will repay you
4) originality pays off
