Pros: Amazon Web Services allows me to create a virtual machine running Linux so that security, availability, elasticity, reliability, and cost factors are all accounted for. Information Assurance is of top priority, including claims-based authentication, single sign-on, MEAN stack, and secure SSH access with public and private PKI infrastructure to leverage AAA best practices.

Cons: AWS needs to improve their java-based browser SSH client. Both Azure and Google Cloud Platform far exceed AWS in this regard.

Pros: From when it first became available, I've loved using Lumberyard. It's got so many features that are all in one place that you really can't go wrong. It also has improved massively over the years, with more to come I'm sure. Just like anything else, though, you'll want to experience with every tool for your project.

Cons: Sometimes it would break down on me, but with the level of improvements, I think they're ironing out a lot of issues. I can also see how some things could be confusing for new users in the UI

I expected more from Amazon

Pros: Overall, the number of things that Lumberyard can do is quite large. Amazon has the building blocks of something really great here.

Cons: Execution on just about every aspect of Lumberyard falls short of great. I feel that it's trying to do too many things halfway rather than doing a few really well. I intend to mess with it some more, but it's not making a good impression over other options.

A really good start.

Pros: It seems to be brimming with potential.
It has one of the biggest financial powerhouses behind it, so the support is likely to be there.
Cross platform development

Cons: It can be just as cumbersome as CryEngine was.
Learning curve, but it's not too severe.
Total price is a little much for basic game design.

I really enjoy the general concept of this software, but feel like it could be better.

Pros: The software in general is really easy to use and its a free cross-platform triple-A game engine that developed by amazon.

Cons: Occasionally the application will freeze up causing me to have to restart my computer, which is really annoying to be honest.
