Should I plan on making a game myself, and I'd need for instance about 10K, I'd need Kickstarter too. Not everyone is made out of money, and some people have a family to take care of as well.

10K is a lot of money for working class people, and it's insane to loan that amount at a bank, since there's nothing you can offer as collateral, so they'll give you their highest rates. Then it'll end up costing you almost double. That's just not worth it...
Currently playing: Again, Escape from Monkey Island (replay), King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow
Next in line: King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, The Last Express, Time Hollow
Recently finished: King's Quest V: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder, The Curse of Monkey Island (replay), The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (abandoned), Mass Effect 3
