The Problem With The Term ‘Hipster Games’

Gamer Euphoria staff member Sean writes:

''Recently a article posted on N4G decided to tell people why gamers/people disliked hipster games. The site that posted it shall remain nameless (after all naming and shaming seems a bit silly) but their statement on ‘hipster games’ just came off as quite silly. Team Ico’s titles Shadow Of The Colossus and Ico were immediately pointed to as prime example of hipster gaming. This slightly confused me. Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus never came off as pretentious at any given point. If anything it came off as a game created by people with a vision, a vision that didn’t include the staples of video games that seem so overly abundant. Both games did have a ‘artsy’ feel to them, but this honestly (to me anyway) felt more like the Japanese culture seeping through into the game.'' (Bastion, Culture, ICO, Journey, Limbo, Shadow of the Colossus)
