"A student entered a Game Jam but was unable to complete anything of note. He turned to the developer beside him, whose game was lauded by all. "Master," the student exclaimed, "please teach me how to choose a path as you have. I considered a thousand game ideas, yet I could not decide the best one." "I wish I had your problems,"the master sighed. "I only had one idea, so could not choose at all."
