Thank you so much for your informative and helpful response.
So are you saying that I can program most all of the game myself, I just need other people to do the 3d modeling, animation, and art?
This is quite a long list:
If I were to make a bare-bones game on a tight budget, we wouldn't need cut scene cinematics, the voices could be done by friends of mine, and the sound and music could be done by me (I'm a musician and sound guy). I am also a writer and I wouldn't need to pay for a story concept or any storyboarding.
Which of those job roles could you absolutely not live without? If we were to shrink that list. I think it would look more like this:
So you need bare minimum about a 4 person team to make a game?
