As a followup to yesterdays 10 Reasons why it sucks to have your own company here’s my list of 10 reasons why it kicks ass to have your own (game development) company.

The 10 best things, in no particular order:

  1. No more 8 hour workdays =) I’ve managed to switch to 14 hour workdays instead and it kicks ass! (And weekends are nowadays just a myth)
  2. It’s like a hobby, fun as hell! (and just as expensive).
  3. Doing “research” is awesome! Based on the amount of “research” we’ve done you should expect a Star Craft II killer any day now.
  4. GDC in California when the weather  is shitty back here in Finland.
  5. You get to make BIG decisions, like just last week when we were deciding what kind of beer to get for our new fridge. (I now understand why some executives suffer from stress)
  6. You get to do a lot of different things. Business meetings, investor meetings, software development, game design and janitoring.
  7. When something goes wrong and you need to find someone to blame all you need to do is look in the mirror.
  8. People always say that lots of money brings lots of problems. At least that’s one thing we don’t have to worry about, something that should compensate for the stress we get from the BIG decisions.
  9. If you worry about job security this is the dream job.
  10. You get to create these kind of Top 10 lists during working hours.
