This is rare, but I actually agree with every point you made ekianjo^My problem with the KS game scene is that a lot of it looks like the pop singers from the 80s making a comeback to make some easy bucks.
"Hey, we are the makers of Megaman" -> Mighty N9
"Hey, we are the makers of Castlevania" -> this thing
"Hey, we are the makers of Wing Commander" -> Star Citizen
and so on...
Some of them will be good, but I expect most of them to be below average vs expectations, because most of these people have NOT made games in years (or if they have, they haven't made good ones in years) and they are just asking to be trusted on their reputation back when they were good.
But hey, people age, and they often "lose it" - we see it a lot among most art forms (musicians, film makers getting lazy and less provocative and therefore less interesting) - I'm not interested in backing the old guys who think they can make a come-back. They had their time of glory and now it's gone. I'd rather have new, original ideas instead of rehashing the same thing over and over again because of everlasting nostalgia.
I was at the Classic Gamers Expo here in Vegas a few years back, and I was talking to the DKII Intellivision creator, and someone asked why he didn't do KS to fund his projects? Now he was very old school(obviously), but he thought KS was not the way to do things, as he figured "create" something first, and if it's good, others will buy it. He thought taking money first was just "wrong". Now while I agree with his ideology for what he is doing, I can't really expect a game on a HUGE level to follow that business plan.
He is one man, making one game, so "build it, and they will come" works for his uses. So I can see both sides of the arguments, but sometimes "you need money, to make money". As I have stated in the past, KS is just a glorified "investment" tool, and as such, anyone who want's to take part, is making an "investment" and it should be considered as such, and treated as such. Your "return" is getting a product of some sort that you would normally never get the chance to obtain through standard means.
So it all comes down to what someone sees value in, and what others may not.
