probably the biggest 'offenders'
@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.
There honestly not that many great indie games, they are all shitty platformers or poor copies of AAA titles.
and yeah i have stopped doing so
I was a massive fan of the MLB The Show seriers
2 years ago their launch was a flop and servers were fucked
they promised to fix it
a year ago their new launch, worse than the last
it was disgusting
the servers are still fucked
there is a very small handful of us that feel the same
but the majority are willing to put up with it
its sad really
but a lot of sport games are like this with dogshit servers
then again every sports game is run by EA
bar MLB The Show
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.
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.
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.
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.
Triple AAA games have the potential to give us some of the best games ever made more often than Indie games
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.
Lol somebody just said star citizen is going to be something?
It's a work in progress.
no memes sky is supposedly good now after all the patches and updates
Yeah. That's what I've heard.
How many indie games do you often see being as high quality as Triple AAA games?
they can have better 'gameplay' than aaa but they never have better tech/graphics
and people always cherrypick indies
99.9999% of indies are cancer made in rpg maker or source engine
with default assets
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.
horizon cost sony like 100 mil to make
the dark souls goy made an arguably better game for sony as well
