Do you remember when games were hard and frustrating to the point where you had to walk away for a bit? If you’re anything like me, you miss games like that. Games that won’t baby you and walk you through the game. That’s one of the biggest draws to indie games for me. These are the guys that share the same sentiment and develop games that they would have loved as kids, which are usually games I would have loved as a kid. The most recent one that I have had the privilege to play is Broforce from Free Lives Games. This game is a throwback to 2D side scrolling shooting platformers like Contra Metal Slug and Mega Man. It also oozes American values. I’ve never felt more patriotic than being a bro and liberating countries that absolutely needed and wanted democracy.
