Lots of memorable games for sure!

IamTylerDurden11666d ago (Edited 1666d ago )

For sure, but i'm shocked to see Journey not even in the honorable mentions. Resogun and Nex Machina also deserve to be on the list. Dead Cells, Owlboy, Transistor, Binding of Isaac, Enter the Gungeon, Pyre, Axiom Verge are some other good ones that are absent. Perhaps even Soma or Helldivers?

Some of my personal favorites

Journey
Transistor
Enter the Gungeon
Nex Machina
Resogun
Galak-Z
Pyre
Salt & Sanctuary
Helldivers
Alienation
Stories
Nuclear Throne

Alienation is underrated. I actually prefer it over Resogun when it comes down to Housemarque's games. I need to play more SuperGiant games as I loved Transistor. I enjoy the level of effort they put into their artwork. It's always gorgeous.

A fair few of those arent indie. Helldivers, Journey, Resogun and Alienation have the support of a major publisher. How did you think those were indie?

LucasRuinedChildhood1666d ago

The main picks are good but the honourable mentions are a bit bland. Where the f*** is Hotline Miami, The Talos Principle, Superhot, Katana Zero, Thumper, My Friend Pedro, Hollow Knight, The Witness, Niddhogg, Night In The Woods, Journey, Towerfall, Guacamelee, Furi, Olli Olli, Ape Out, Pyre, The Stanley Parable, etc?

Ooo, Hotline Miami. That game was a blast, despite the frustration of dying over and over. I never played the sequel.

IamTylerDurden11666d ago (Edited 1666d ago )

I don't think Bastion is even the best SuperGiant game of the last decade. In my opinion Transistor was more impressive. The combat was leaps and bounds improved providing both turn based and real time options as well as a near limitless mix of combinations. The soundtrack and narration are always sublime in SuperGiant games, but i think they took it to another level in Transistor with the DS4 talking to you and with Red being a lounge singer and offering power vocal numbers. Tbh, Pyre was a fantastic game as well, but for me Transistor was something special. SuperGiant Games is a truly talented studio.

I also believe that Hellblade was a bit overrated. The visuals and art direction are stunning, but the game is very limited. Senua is deliberately slow and she controls in a very tanky and non responsive fashion. The game is extremely linear and exploration consists of searching a claustrophobic forest with many barriers for white dots that contain lore stones. The puzzles were tedious and redundant. Combat wasn't spectacular. The auto save feature caused many people to lose data because the developers included no chapter select and no manual save. If you fell into a progress impeding bug you were basically f*****.

Night In The Wood
Disco Elysium
The Touryst
Stardew Valley

These are some of my most favorite indies game this gen.

Not to be rude, but this is kind of a lame list. While I agree with some, "Celeste" is in the honorable mentions, and the "Hotline Miami" series isn't even mentioned? Someone also noted that "Journey" isn't included? Uh.. those are some fairly MAJOR titles to exclude altogether.

The platform breakdowns really show how irrelevant xbox has come for selling software.

1 Hogwarts Legacy Switch 41%, PS5 26%, PS4 24%, Xbox 5%

2 EA Sports FC 24 Switch 34%, PS5 28%, PS4 26%, Xbox 12%

Yea, you can see why some developers and publishers are increasingly starting to skip XBox all together. Unless you're in a small minority of successful and highly played Gamepass games, you're pretty much taking a payout on your game just to rot and die on the service.

Not that surprising, the Switch has some killer exclusive titles, so people have to own a Switch to play them.

Asgore is often reduced to being either a ruthless dictator or an absolute wuss by the fandom, despite being incredibly layered.
