More Indie Games on Consoles Means More Variety in What You Play

OnlySP: One of the most frequent complaints about the Triple-A games industry, and one that only seems to be growing in volume as time goes on, is that of its insularity. There really is no doubt that the biggest bets in gaming are made on the safest gambles: first-person shooters; increasingly generic action games; heavily directed action/adventure titles and open-world RPGs. I’ve written before about the homogeneity so prevalent in today’s Triple-A selection, so I won’t waste too many words lamenting the fact. In contrast to this, the indie scene is booming and bringing with it the kind of creativity that is so lacking amongst big budget games. With the efforts of these small teams being embraced more with each passing month by both publishers and consumers, we can’t help but wonder whether this will spark a revelation of sorts.

The story is too old to be commented.

The problem I have, is that while I like the variety of indie games, I very rarely see any quality in them. In the current landscape of the industry, I have no interest in either AAA, or indie, which leaves me high and dry. So, I really hope the indie variety will gather interest, and cause the AAA games to follow suit.

At the same time, I'm not going to pay money to the indies, for games I don't actually intend to play, just for that hope. I'm pretty much in a "wait and see" boat.

The quality of indie games has come a very long way in the last two years. The quality bar has really improved, and will not continue as developers continue to gain more knowledge.

That's cool I just want more quality rpgs to be honest. This gen saw a few good ones but nothing like PS1 and PS2 which saddened me greatly.
