          5 million $ is more than enough to pack a AAA game. If they continue packing amateurish and average games then the humble bundle will likely lose most of its steam in the mid term.

            Clearly you haven't played any of the ones bundled this time then - Psychonauts is amazing!

              amateurish?

              What games are amateurish? Amnesia, Bastion and Limbo are very,very good games. Psychonauts is a bit buggy (sound sometimes stopping/crashing sometimes). What's amateurish?

                Clearly I have played and I haven't found any AAA game, only amateurish and average ones.

                  Well bundle sort of indicates that is is multiple and not just one game, besides the average payment is around 8$ and theres no garanty that the same would be payed if there is just one game.
