Please read it when you have the chance if it interest you.

Here's a sample texts.
The Main Point
"People that do an otherwise fun activity at an expert, competitive level have to engage with it in a very different way than others who are not counting on it as their primary income. This is true for athletes, singers, hot dog eating champions, painters, eSports players, and dancers."
"It’s true for making videogames, too."

In addition, even if you get to a directorial position in a major game production and aren't stuck making games you don't care about, you still likely won't have as much creative control as an indie game developer. You would be forced to change the game based on executive decision, focus groups and the preferences of other team members. I like the auteur freedom of indie games.
