indie games that don't do anything good prob won't sell very well.

If everything is "just ok" or just a checklist item or something then it probably won't wow people.

Just curious, why the mention of indie games? Fuel Overdose is an Insomniac game published by EA. Definitely not indie.

KidBroSweets2955d ago

Well in the video it DOES say, "The indie game that refreshed the combat racing genre".

shivvy24955d ago

@monkey ninja , Fuel Overdose isnt from insomniac. i think you got confused with sunset overdrive or overstrike

brish955d ago

Not always. Shadow of the Colossus didn't do very well sales wise but it's one of the best games ever made.

ABizzel1955d ago

True, but then you can look at the re-release of the game in the ICO / SotC HD collection, and together they sold over 1 million copies. On top of that while it's a great game, it's not a game for everyone.

Beyond Good & Evil bombed in sales when it first released.

Psychonauts is another game that received immense critical praise upon released, and also tanked in sales.

Just because a game is good doesn't mean it will sell well. Likewise, just because a game sales well doesn't mean it's good, lol.

and alot of times bad games sell solely on it's name and not based on how it actually plays,like COD or licensed movie games. cod sells to some on how it plays but its many sequels are just copy and paste jobs so a lot of the sells come from people who bought the previous one.

Wow, I never would have thought this was possible. Hopefully they get it up on other platforms to increase sales.

I didn't disagree with you, but I would argue that if the game is a piece of garbage, then the developers (not these particular devs, but devs in general) need to take a hit. I haven't played this particular game, or even heard of it until now, but it's sitting at a 51 on Metacritic, and even with Metacritic being a joke, it's a poor reflection of the game itself. If devs go on to make profit on horrible games, then it gives them incentive to keep making crap games. I don't want people to go broke or lose their jobs if they are good workers, but I personally cannot support a developer that created bad games just for the sake of profit.

Oh, this game.

I played the demo, thought it was sorta fun

How could a game that critics said "isn’t satisfying in the least" end up also not being interesting enough for people to buy? It's like the game isn't satisfying or something :O

(Also the price should be lower.)
