I mean... Game development is easy stuff.
And Romhacking is hard and sometimes impossible.
Should i start making games instead of romhacking?
What'cha think?

Depends on exactly what you want. With ROM hacking, you've got a completely finished system already, and all you have to do is make the world. On the other hand, with Game Development, the system that is closest to being complete (if you want a Pokemon game) is Poccil's Starter Kit, and that still isn't done yet. Still, with something like RMXP, it is fairly easy to make the worlds itself.

I would make games instead of Rom-hacking because RomHacking is really difficult with scripts.

I'd Suggest Game Dev. Because It's Easier To Make You Game More Original. Go With Game Development(best choice(rpg maker xp))

Me too~~
I advice to Game Develope because it is easier with Poccil's starter kit.
I tried before Rom Hacking, it has lot of limit but Game Dev has no LIMIT!
You can do what you want!
So just make a Pokemon Fangame dont hack.

I also suggest game Developing. With Poccil's starter kit is really easy, and you get full freeness to do what you want; in hacking it's really difficult to even change texts, since you have a defined space for them. All that changing tiles, palettes and all of that is really hard. Better go with Game Dev ;)

Well, if you acctually take the time to understand the roms scripting you can make imposible posible in rom hacking, but that is a knowloedge that takes months maybe a year or two to get and to do that on game dev it might just take a week or two so if your looking for easiness and cheezyness then yep, Game Dev is 4Ya

It's a bit redundant asking about which is better in this forum since the majority of people would opt for Game Dev.

It depends on what you plan to do however; many people can argue which is better but what it really comes down to is what you can do with it and both have equal possibilities. It's really just a matter of preference.
