What is the different between Homebrew and Commercial game?

Homebrew is made by people like you and me, usually for fun or to develop their programming skills. And they are free.

Commercial games are made by companies such as EA or Nintendo, and are sold in shops for profit.

Commercial also just means that a game is sold for profit. Thus, people like you and me can make a commercial game too if we know what we're doing. Homebrew often refers to more hack and slash work that you do in your basement with unofficial software.
