I am honestly not trying to start a fight. I'm only stating my opinion, and my opinion is that getting demoralised, losing confidence or feeling annoyed about JAZZA's victory is pointless and totally the wrong way to look at it. JAZZA and his team are talented and experienced. They deserve their victory and whoever loses confidence over them winning three times in a row is being overly sensitive or has the wrong attitude towards the game jam. As I said, the right attitude is to take that victory as motivation to get better because that ultimately produces the best result for the whole game jam and for yourself.
I like a little competition, but I love it when I get pounded into the ground. That means I have more people I can badger with questions, and more to learn :3
I look at the stuff I did a few weeks ago and go "wow, look at how much i've grown! I though I was good before, but now..."
and if you look at it like that, then all you see if yourself getting better ^.^
though you gotta watch your ego with that ;)
the only thing that kills me is when I submit something I start looking at all the flaws in it and go "oh, man, they're gonna hate it" - then I start putting down my own creation in the hopes that all the negative i'll get hurts less.
