With the rise of indies on PS4 and the somewhat unfortunate news that the Vita is not a focus for AAA titles, I've seen a lot of dislike for indies out there and it's led me to a couple questions. The first is what is an indie game? The second what do you think of them and why? Do you love them? Despise them? To me an indie game is hard to pin down, which is probably a lot of the problem. To me they're games that include at least one of the following; they don't have a huge budget (or if they do it's crowd funded rather than publisher funded), they aren't backed by a major publisher, and tend towards digital distribution. I enjoy indie games, but I don't tend to think of them primarily as indie games. I just simply think of them as games mainly. There are good ones, bad ones, and mediocre ones. Some are retro 2D, some high def 2D, others are 3D, some can even be fairly impressive visually. Some are very short and others have potentially limitless replay value. So I don't know I think having indie games is a good thing largely. Are there duds? Sure. Is every indie game for everyone? Well, is every AAA game for everyone? I don't really think so. But enough about what I think? What do some of you think regarding indies?
