$100 may not seem like much money to some. That's great, those for who $100 isn't a big deal are fortunate. But the sad reality is that the indie game scene spans beyond what most major gaming websites cover. Most indie developers I know are starving artists for who $100 dollars is a month's worth of food.
Maybe it's the cynical bastard in me but I really don't like 'starving artists.' My opinion is that if you are in a lifestyle where you are scraping together $100 to buy a month's worth of food, your time is better spent trying to get out of that situation than programing games. This probably stems from my view that the vast majority of starving artists are never going to make a living on their art alone. Greenlight should not be their 'hail mary' at making a suitable monthly income.
