'What value do you see in game jams? What have you learned?'

They're increasingly popular and seemingly going on all the time. What value do they hold for game developers? We asked our readers.
Game jams have taken over the world -- or that's the way it seems. Hell, even the White House recently held one. They're increasingly popular and seemingly going on all the time. What value do they hold for game developers? They're a way to flex your creative muscles, meet collaborators, force yourself to both start and finish something, and they teach you important lessons about making games. That's what our readers said, anyway, when we asked them. Today's Twitter question on Gamasutra was this: 'What value do you see in game jams? What have you learned?' The responses were many -- so many we couldn't include them all this, week. Still, if you have something to say, keep it coming in the comments below. Remember, if you're interested in participating in these conversations in the future, make sure to follow @Gamasutra on Twitter. The questions usually go out on Fridays in the late morning, Pacific time, alongside Tweets of our regular news, blogs, and original writing.
