Why PS4's Indie Influx Isn't as Bad as You Think

Push Square: "The new Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus has been revealed, and once again it contains many indie games. But many people in the PlayStation Nation (are we still called that? I hope not) are a little miffed about the selection – after all, PlayStation 4 players have to pod out to play online, so feel that they should be entitled to some bigger games to justify the price. It's even got to the point where some have started hoping for titles like – choke – Knack to be included, purely for the sake of a boxed game being part of the roster. However, I'm here to tell you why this indie influx isn't such a bad thing."

PS4 still receives the most retail games these days, so idk how having a lot of indies is a problem.

Naughty Dog and Bungie used to be an indie developers and look at what they have become right now...

The Devil's Lapdogs?

Bungie are doomed to spend 9 more years watching as Activision whores Destiny (which is a great name for a whore) out until she dies of DLCs... and Naughty Dog are basically required to make TLoU 2 - whether they want to or not.

Hell even Microsoft and Sony themselves I am sure used to be indie at 1 point.

I love all the indies just as much (Sometimes even more) than AAA titles. Rocket League, Dust, Mercenary Kings, Hell Divers, Binding Of Isaac - so on and so on. I've probably played more of these than any big title. Though, this may change once I get NFS, Fallout and JC3.

A game is a game. How can anyone complain about indies when we get games like Child Of Light, Journey, Outlast, Resogun, Hotline Miami, Fez, Isaac, Everyones gone to the rapture, Tomorrow Children, No Mans Sky, etc........

Im not complaining, Its an Indie Revolution and Im happy to be a part when you have games like those.

@ nowitzki2004

I don't understand how they can complain either, most of them are just trolls IMO.

I'm quite enjoying the Indie Revolution! Bring it on! 8D

Edit: Typed your name wrong. xD

medman1024d ago

Amen brother. I'm looking forward to games like Rime, The Tomorrow Children, No Man's Sky, etc. etc. every bit as much as I am games like Uncharted and Horizon Zero Dawn. Well, maybe Horizon Zero Dawn is my number one, but you get my point.

WumpWumpLol1023d ago

For sure! Fallout and JC3 are probably the top 2 i'm waiting for the most but, I'll take and enjoy all the Indies I can get my hands on! I eat that stuff up and am not ashamed! Haha. ;D

How is categorising a game by 'indie' or 'AAA' indicative in any way to the quality of the game?
How about we judge the game by the actual game?

My fav game on XBONE is Ori, an Indie. Oh no!!!!!!!!!
Favourite current game on PS4 - Rocket League.
Favourite current game on Vita - Shovel Knight.

My most anticipated game Fallout 4 - the polar opposite to an indie.
Why not enjoy both?

Either accept and embrace the indies, as they are amazing, cheap and are not going anywhere or get left behind crying in a corner like a spoilt little brat.

Good article.

Short answer is the internet gaming community today is a cesspool of ignorant mob mentality. A good game is a good game, what ever studio it comes from.

chrisco84au1024d ago

Yep a sad truth.
Well said, bubble up.

nowitzki20041024d ago (Edited 1024d ago )

Well said, for gaming.
