Triple A titles or indie games?

Recommended Posts

Which ones do you prefer and why?  Do you mostly prefer the smaller games made by one man bands and small teams, like found on Steam or the app store or what not?  The super expensive ones by the big publishers, like those on Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo consoles?  A mix of both?

What do you think?

Myself, I'm not sure.  I like the ideas found in indie games more, but I generally prefer 3D titles to 2D ones and prefer my games to be more ambitious than the indie scene can usually offer.

I think that if it's a good game, it's a good game.  I would never not buy a game because it is or isn't indie but generally I find that AAA games generally play a little bit easier.  Every now and then there is a significant outlier like Minecraft or FTL though.

I play probably more indie games these days. I like the 2d graphics, 16 bit style, I love the "charm" of it and how it brings back memories of my childhood growing up playing similar games.

 

My next purchase will be an indie game - Stardew Valley - I hear good things and I loved Harvest Moon growing up.

 

Also Banner Saga 2 - I am so hyped for that - The first game is so amazing.

 

The last AAA title I purchased was Fallout 4.

I mostly play indie games, this is for an a verity of reasons including; Indie games are often far better for money as developers making those games will spend more time on game play meaning cheaper games as well and indie games are mostly made from new ideas unlike AAA games that are just sequels.

While I've played quite a few indies, especially in the last year or so, I've always much preferred the large AAA titles as they simply give you more bang for your buck, whereas indies usually only last ten or so hours, if that.
