Edit: Sorry for the confusion in the title. It has been updated and I have sacked the person in charge. At least you know what tomorrow's question will be...

Congratulations to Elwenil, our eleventh day winner!
On the twelfth day, the question we have for you is "Who do you think is the most overrated game designer?"
I honestly think most game designers are overrated. Many here would lambaste me for bringing up that I think Kojima is one of them after yesterday's replies... But he's not the one that I think of as being the most overrated.
That honor goes to Jonathan Blow.
His Indie game was great, you proclaim! It was okay. It was a puzzle game that I'd seen versions of before in flash games. Was it a good version of the type, yes. But not award winning, IMHO. And, then, what does he do next? He wastes tons of money on a big world for a puzzle game that didn't need that much budget for that sort of game, let alone the various elements of it that most people who completed the game *raises hand* never saw because practically no one wants to do the same puzzles over all over again just to possibly find something they missed or scour the world for each hidden puzzle.
I don't get the fascination people have in praising his abilities. It's nothing new to me and it's a waste of money on something that should have gone towards something worth the expense.
