  • This actually does have some potential… some games like Dota (2) and League of Legends were based on user-created content. Of course it also probably depends on how many ppl get this, and there will be a lot of fluff before any cream rises to the top.

    • Yeah but what delicious cream it could be – you’re totally right about some of the best new genres to come out of in-game mods. Spark is a lot more open from the get go so we should get some serious gems. You’re right though – there will be loads of chaff to sift through first though.
