This short self-documentary on Edmund McMillen is really worth a watch. I have quite the palette of emotions regarding this and it'll take a minute to digest, but I've always had a lot of respect for Edmund and this only goes to increase that.

Perhaps the fact that I've played a couple dozen hours of Binding of Isaac and have sorta bonded with it makes a lot of sense in this light, or vice versa. If we assume games can be art, and every painting is a self-portrait, especially in the case of games with a creator's voice, then empathizing with a game in turn means that you empathize with its creator.
