To create a good game, you have to excel in many areas. To achieve such a goal, you have to play many games. What is important is quality, not quantity. It does not matter whether you are playing a game for a long time or not; what you have felt in each instance while playing the game is important.
To create a result that exceeds a certain threshold, we need to make more efforts and invest more time than usual. Sometimes, it is challenging both physically and emotionally. However, you cannot compromise easily to improve yourself.
In order not to compromise, I constantly compare my work with other excellent outputs and pursue the pioneers that have already walked through a path that is similar to mine. I have continuously read the lectures and materials that have introduced how to develop successful games and relevant knowhow for the recent few years. I believe that they would help, even though they would not be of immediate help in the near future. Also, it is an interesting process. Since it would be difficult for me to have an opportunity to meet them in person, I try to listen to their thoughts in an indirect manner. I believe that such indirect experiences that I have accumulated so far would help me push forward to try new things.
