I'm modder of Amnesia: The Dark Descent and I really like this game! I also love making models and animations for Amnesia.

So I recently played "The Beginner's guide" by Davey Wreden and it opened my eyes to a degree. I haven't been impacted by a game in a long time and this one was a real treat, since it covered creativity and game development process. If you haven't played the game I highly suggest it and don't worry, there are no spoilers here, in fact I'm going to stop talking about it.

One of the key things it made me think about was (as the title suggests) the need for validation. It's something that I struggle with and that slows me down in a sense. Because if I actually boil down my own reasons for making mods it is the need for validation. I simply need to feel like I've accomplished something, moreover I need to be told. If I could generate validation I would most definitely generate much better mods. The need for validation makes me do stupid things, destroy otherwise great projects or finish them too soon. It gives me false hope and when something is slightly deviated from what I expect, I rage.

So, how can I fix it?

I can't. This is something that's highly subjective and something that needs to be dealt with personally. I will observe what is the source of my validation thirst and will try to find some alternative. Perhaps filling the need for validation with an entirely different set of skills, while working on mods as my hobby.
