Employed again??

I could maybe try to hire you to develop games for me. Maybe we can set a rate or an agreement.
Remember this one client who wanted me to drop all my other clients? Well, just got this email from him today, and what you see above is part of what he said.

Hmmm... what do you think? Should I perhaps entertain the idea, or forget it? What's the difference in being hired and that of being a freelancer in this particular scenario? Is it possible to be "hired" even if the employer and employee live countries apart? Is it possible to be "hired" even if you have never seen your boss face to face? Isn't that just like being a freelancer?

Being a freelancer, i make games, showcase them online, then wait for the offers to come in. Or at times I would offer it directly to my clients. The thing being.. i have no idea if the game is gonna sell or not, or when the next payment would be due. I work at my own time and at my own pace.

Being hired on the other hand means what? A commitment? Does that mean that i have to make games while hounded by deadlines and responsibilities? I'd like to think that it's good if it's gonna bring in the dough regulary. But other than that... well... what do you think?

Anway, i asked him what he had to offer and now i'm just waiting for his reply. Will let you guys know.
