no at all. I do think this indie craze has become ridiculous though when subpar games are getting all this amazing praise. There are some great indie games out there but imo not nearly enough. I find most to be lacking bigtime in the gameplay dep. To be fair they are priced cheaper but still to much praise for alot of subpar games.


I also find it funny with all the complaints, oh and theres so so many around here with other games but anyone notice when it comes to the indie scene all these complaints we see on other games every single day are completely and utterly nonexitant when it comes to the indie scene, simply cause indie games are the "in" thing at and ppl never seem(reviewers included) to apply all and most complaints with other games on the indie scene....its become silly

Hell No, more like the best thing least Indie like creating new games, instead of rehashing PS2 HD collections, and copy old Nintendo type games.

No I'm not, half talented devs filling the market with their garbage and making us waste our money on it.

Are you kidding? Off the top of my head, I can think of several things that are worse:

-Shady DLC practices
-Online gaming
-Enchanted Arms
-PSN getting hacked
-RROD/YLOD
-Enchanted Arms
-Invasive DRM (Diablo 3)
-Not enough new IPs; too many sequels
-Nintendo since 1995

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

while thats pretty harsh in a way this is actually true, most indie games are utter poop and again ppl dont seem to apply so many complaints we see everyday to the indie scene....why is that....so much hate and complaints with every single aspect of games but never never with the indie scene....pretty odd lol

How exactly are they "making" you waste your money on them? is there a gun being held your head forcing you to purchase them?
