Humility, passion, and indie games: Shahid Ahmad embodies the new face of PlayStation

PSU.com writes:

"For months now, Strategic Content wizard and PS Vita champion Shahid Kamal Ahmad has been spending almost every waking moment of his life courting developers and stocking his favorite platform with creative indie games. As Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's Senior Business Development Manager, Shahid is at least partially responsible for bringing more than two dozen games to PS Vita. Thomas Was Alone. Luftrausers. Hotline Miami. Super Crate Box. Lone Survivor.

To a handheld struggling at market, he's a bonafide PlayStation hero." (PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

Indies are very fing good on the Vita. Gucamelee is better then most AAA games i have played and payed 60$.

That game is only 15$ and its epic. Mexican Luchador Punching, body slamming and the platformer my god. Do you know you could fly in that game ? X D its that sick.

The indie game i am most excited for is Lone Survivor.

In my case I'm excited for The Binding of Isaac : Rebirth :P

Couldn't stand the controls on PC, it will be great for Vita on the go !

I'd love it if Jamestown came to the Vita. Its an awesome old-school style top down shooter.

Right now both Tales of Games for the Vita are on top of the list people want to be localized when Shahid asked for suggestions. So please Shahid get together with Bamco & make that happen. I hear both those Tales games are baller so i think a lot of people would want to play it.

Edit

I think all those Indie games that Sony presented at E3 are probably playable on the Vita. I wonder what people are gonna say when they see me play Octodad on the bus :P

if they bring Tales and the other big games on poll Typ0 and Valkyria Chronicles 3 the Vita will explode.

I cant wait for the indie games for ps4 hell ps3 and psv for that matter. But the ones shown at e3 just looked like so much fun and besides bf4 multiplayer reveal actually looked more entertaining than most games shown.

If you guys haven't purchased Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery yet, you're missing out. The atmosphere is incredible! The dialogue is memorable. The puzzles are never the same, either!

This is the most fun indie game I've played since And Yet It Moves. :) I love it!
