Deja Vu

It was 1985, not too long after the dreadful Videogame Crash. No business in their right mind would attempt such a risky, crazy, ultimately doomed to fail endeavor that was the videogame fad...

People don't give Nintendo the props they deserve. They've saved AND taken gaming to the next level multiple times. Any REAL gamer would respect Nintendo, whether they like them or not. They've proven the nay-sayers wrong time and time again.

Are a gamer lol. I agree, its one of those things, hate em or love em, Nintendo has always deserved respect.

eagle215053d ago

NBT915053d ago

Agreed Nintendo are legendary, there's a reason why the WII is leading in sales.
Mass appeal, gamers and non gamers like Nintendo :P

AA Games Deserve More Attention Than AAA Titles

While AAA games make headlines all over the internet, AA games are quietly and profoundly impacting the gaming industry with their creativity.

No sh!t, like that's one thing that I will give the modern game industry is the re-uprising of the mid-tier. It's not as big as it was during the PS2 like Golden era of the mid-tier, but it's pretty damn good at the moment.

Inverno7h ago

Can we even call half of these games mid-tier when they're just 10 dollars short of full price? And if we're talking about indies that charge around 30 bucks, do many of these games honestly deserve the praise when so many chose the E.A. approach? They mention Hellblade 2 in the article, how can a game that took 5 years to make be considered "mid-tier"? Who knows what that budget was with how much work went into the visuals and sound design and mo-cap.

Michiel19897h ago

what's wrong with the early access approach? Supergiant games got so much help from the community and took the feedback to heart and created one of the best roguelikes. The early access that you pay 40 bucks to play the game earlier is awful, but this is actually super beneficial for the devs and also the gamers. Same with DoS2 and Baldur's gate 3.

Inverno7h ago

@Michiel
There are few exceptions in E.A. but let's look at The Rogue Prince of Persian. Why in the factual is an Ubi funded game in E.A.? There are games that are in early access for years, I'm talking 7-8 years. Look at 7 Days to Die, apparently it's coming out of E.A. and they're charging 54 bucks for the 1.0 version on consoles. Crowd funding also brought in a lot of problems, with many games funded turning out crap or then later signing a deal with a publisher regardless. The "mid-tier" market has a lot of shady business practices.

isarai1h ago

Well im not talking these games but the mid-tier in general, games like the sniper elite series, RoboCop, Alan Wake 2, Lies of P, Stellar Blade, Alone in the Dark, etc it's far better than it was a gew years ago where everything was either a huge AAA game or a simple lo-fi indie game, and there was very little in between.

StormSnooper11h ago

I have enjoyed some amazing AA gaming this gen, and the Portal has been a surprising catylist for me getting into these.

jznrpg8h ago

I give good games attention. AA or AAA doesn’t matter to me.

Eonjay7h ago

This. Why does everything have to be this vs that? Good game is good and deserves attention.

Abnor_Mal7h ago

War, war never ends.

War! Huh yea good gosh y’all,
what is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!

LucasRuinedChildhood6h ago(Edited 6h ago)

I suppose the general point is that *overall* AA games deserve more attention right now because of how much good stuff they're putting out. Doesn't mean that you shouldn't give good AAA games attention. The point about attention stands even if you remove the whole AAA vs AA angle.

Indie and AA games just don't count for a huge swathe of the audience. They ignore them or the lack of marketing never drags them in. And many who praise the PS1 and PS2 for smaller, original games and proclaim games to be bad now also don't play these games. The hypocrisy of that is starting to really irritate me, tbh, especially as quality 3D indie games have become common.

Supporting AA games can also slowly give those studios a higher budget to work with while still being creative, and you eventually end up with things like Larian becoming AAA.

VersusDMC6h ago

Hades sold 7 mil on steam alone. Disco Alysium 2.7 just on steam. Plague tale Requiem(is this even AA?) is at 3 mill. How did they not get attention?

And Forespoken is on the attention getting side? It bombed! What a idiotic thumbnail.

SMTVengence is a game that is getting overlooked. Put that on the thumbnail.

LucasRuinedChildhood5h ago(Edited 5h ago)

Here are some examples of some smaller games that I'd recommend people give a go:

- Metal Hellsinger
- Katana Zero
- The Talos Principle 2
- Bomb Rush Cyberfunk
- Rollerdrome
- Trepang2
- Tinykin
- Another Crab's Treasure
- Sifu
- Ghostrunner
- Penny's Big Breakaway
- The Pathless
- Kena: Bridge Of Spirits
- Midnight Fight Express
- Jusant
- Solar Ash
- Outer Wilds
- Furi
- Superhot
- The Forgotten City
- Crow Country
- Signalis

And obviously stuff like Hotline Miami but that's an obvious choice. Great game

Meet The Solo Dev Whose Sega Rally Tribute Could Become An Official Sequel

When the first footage of Over Jump Rally appeared online, it rightly caused quite a stir. Created using Unreal Engine 5, it offered a tantalizing glimpse of what a modern-day Sega Rally could look like, complete with super-realistic car models, breathtaking environments and – of course – the trademark Sega Blue Sky.
