@Fox ⚾ 🇦🇺 its been in sports games forever

2017-11-29 15:15:22 UTC  

probably the biggest 'offenders'

2017-11-29 23:17:58 UTC  

@Fox ⚾ 🇦🇺 You know, you don't have to give these companies your business. It's just a few humongous corporations who do these slimy tactics and make consumer-unfriendly business moves. There are plenty of smaller devs who aim to give gamers a good time. The AAAs only win when we don't regard indies as valid competition to them.

2017-11-29 23:23:07 UTC  

There honestly not that many great indie games, they are all shitty platformers or poor copies of AAA titles.

2017-11-29 23:23:15 UTC  

and yeah i have stopped doing so

2017-11-29 23:23:27 UTC  

I was a massive fan of the MLB The Show seriers

2017-11-29 23:23:44 UTC  

2 years ago their launch was a flop and servers were fucked

2017-11-29 23:23:50 UTC  

they promised to fix it

2017-11-29 23:24:05 UTC  

a year ago their new launch, worse than the last

2017-11-29 23:24:08 UTC  

it was disgusting

2017-11-29 23:24:19 UTC  

the servers are still fucked

2017-11-29 23:24:39 UTC  

there is a very small handful of us that feel the same

2017-11-29 23:24:50 UTC  

but the majority are willing to put up with it

2017-11-29 23:24:52 UTC  

its sad really

2017-11-29 23:25:04 UTC  

but a lot of sport games are like this with dogshit servers

2017-11-29 23:25:23 UTC  

then again every sports game is run by EA

2017-11-29 23:25:33 UTC

No Man's Sky is probably the best indie game of all time tho.

It's sad that you don't see any value in indie gaming. I frankly don't see much value in AAA gaming. It's all a bunch of generic FPSes, TPSes, 3D Zelda clones, and officially licensed games. And don't forget the obligatory Denuvo implementation and Windows exclusivity. Because the publishers call the shots, not the devs.

2017-11-30 00:03:03 UTC  

There used to be an annual charity game marathon called Indie Games for Good that ran every year. I guess the people who do it have had trouble coming together for it in recent years.

2017-11-30 00:07:56 UTC  

If only I knew when that was going to happen again, I could recommend that you check it out for a look at just how much variety there is in indie games.

2017-11-30 00:09:50 UTC  

And yes, I do consider Star Citizen to be independent in spirit, if not in budget. It's going to have really high production values, but it's not going to be hobbled by all the default business models that the likes of EA, Ubisoft, and Activision are infamous for.

2017-11-30 01:23:35 UTC  

Triple AAA games have the potential to give us some of the best games ever made more often than Indie games

2017-11-30 01:32:33 UTC  

Really? I haven't heard about too many of these best games ever made recently out of the AAA side of the industry. I've heard of a lot of the greatest disappointments lately. AAA games certainly have the budget to get big fat media blitzes that promise the greatest experience. But they rarely live up to the hype, even when it's generally well received. And the general Windows exclusivity? I'm not going to stop holding that against the AAA side of the industry until that outright changes. But these big companies are too addicted to their DRM to consider letting their consumers have control over their own computers to think twice about that garbage.

2017-11-30 01:39:17 UTC  

Lol somebody just said star citizen is going to be something?

2017-11-30 01:41:29 UTC  

It's a work in progress.

2017-11-30 01:53:27 UTC  

no memes sky is supposedly good now after all the patches and updates

2017-11-30 01:54:22 UTC  

Yeah. That's what I've heard.

2017-11-30 02:36:10 UTC  

How many indie games do you often see being as high quality as Triple AAA games?

2017-11-30 02:41:02 UTC  

they can have better 'gameplay' than aaa but they never have better tech/graphics

2017-11-30 02:41:09 UTC  

and people always cherrypick indies

2017-11-30 02:41:32 UTC  

99.9999% of indies are cancer made in rpg maker or source engine

2017-11-30 02:41:45 UTC  

with default assets

2017-11-30 10:25:24 UTC  

Like there is a handful of amazing indie games. But yeah like everyone else said a lot are just clones of themselves.

I mead cup head is amazing but honeslty idk how many times i play megaman as a kid.

But in saying that horizon zero dawn was a really great rendition of farcry.

I likethe souls series are probably my favourite modern titles just because they are so so unique.

2017-11-30 18:43:03 UTC  

horizon cost sony like 100 mil to make

2017-11-30 18:43:34 UTC  

the dark souls goy made an arguably better game for sony as well
