Chris Ross writes: Hoping to strike up some conversation with the fellow Cerebral Pop writers, I emailed everyone asking for their thoughts on the ubiquitous Humble Indie Bundle for a roundtable discussion. Much to my surprise, not many of the staff had purchased any of the bundles. Some said the only have access to a Mac; others were skeptical of the frequency of these bundles; and others voiced concerns that it has turned into a sort of elitist club for indie games.
All of these are completely valid arguments against purchasing the bundle.
However, I’d like to impose some arguments for purchasing the bundle, even if you don’t plan on playing any of the games.
