MasonicGamer.com: I’ve been wondering over the past few weeks the following question, does anyone actually give a damn about indie games or do we just like to pretend? I’m not talking about Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo but rather us, the consumers who these games are targeted at in the first place.
It seems that Indie games have become the hot new trend in gaming as of late with anyone not doing their part in helping indie developers such as Microsoft, feeling the wrath of very vocal gamers. I can understand the idea behind helping upstart developers turn their game concepts into a reality but have Indie games become a victim to the stupid “console war” argument between Sony and Microsoft.
From the second they were announced, the PlayStation 4 vs. Xbox One arguments have really been pathetic. Apparently the key to “winning” is to have more RAM than your competition and announce that your system will play used games, just like every single other system before it. When you put it into context, you idiots online are fighting over the stupidest things. Even worse is that the games are taking a back-seat to the hardware and as Nintendo found out the hard way, shiny glossy hardware is nothing without the right software backing it.
