    What's with all theses silly games ?

    I understand that they release a few throwback games for those of us old enough to remember the NES and Sega Genesis but they are releasing so many of them now that I think it's getting a bit ridiculous.

    Indie games. A big focus for Sony this gen. Don't know why it is silly. Steam makes a ton from stuff like this.

    Don't speak out against these games. The nostalgia/MGC-type of gamers will have your head.

    I tried it once, but apparently "retro" is so "nowtro".

    You've been warned...

    I think it's a good thing really. There is space for mega AAA blockbuster games and these more simple (not necessarily) games. They offer different experiences.
    It's kind of like saying racing games are silly just because you don't see the point in them. And just as much, if not more, creativity can go into these types of games.

    Don't Steal. Don't Molest Little Children. Don't Deal Drugs.

    Why speak out against them? If there is a market for them....great. I'm not going to pay for them, but if there are those that will.....doesn't hurt me.

    Speak out = basically an opinion which isn't necessarily favorable. Not that they shouldn't be around.

    But any other opinion on 'retro' styled games that isn't "Yay teh old3n days difficulties!!!!" is not necessarily met nicely on the internet.

    Right now indie games are more visible until big budget games are ready for show/release. Games for new consoles always take time with a number of large releases coming this fall. Wolfenstein and Watch Dogs come out next month along with Bound by Flame. The problem is that companies do not want to take risks so they stick with sequels or push games back if they are new (DC, Watch Dogs Etc..) and it is because people just want to play GTA or COD without supporting anything else.I blame the consumer, because they keep buying the same games while ignoring other games.

    I think the games are far from silly! I would personally love to see more of the 'Retro' games being re-released so the younger generations of today can play the games that a lot of us grew up playing.

    Without a load of those games we probably wouldn't be here talking about 'Next-Gen' gaming.

    All hail the oldies!

    I had this same problem last gen with FPS games. Hopefully they won't be that big this time around.

    Can't agree that they are silly, there is obviously a market for them or they would be released! I think the better way of looking at it is "great for people who want them but I'm not really interested", because that's how I feel!

    Id rather the play the real thing on an Atari/NES/SNES tbh. I've debated this to death and actually been called an Xbox fanboy on the PS Blog for doing so in the past (lol), but honestly, Sony is throwing way too much money at indies right now rather than building up their first party teams again.

    They have probably thrown 2 million across 40 indie titles. PEANUTS. To me that sound like value for money.

    Hey some are cool.

    If anything they will drive innovation and spawn ideas to keep things fresh.

    I'd rather have an inhouse indie team game with that like thatgamecompany last gen. THAT was an indie developer, not these 8 bit knock offs. Seriously just go back and play these games from the 80s that look and play better anyway.

    As long as it doesn't effect Sony's first party output and doesnt get used as a replacement for AAA exclusives then I'm ok with it. I'm not interested in these games personally.

    Some people still like retro games. Its better that those people still get games like this that they like then not. Its better IMO to choose not to buy a certain game because its not your type of game then to never be given the choice.

    With how much money it costs these days to make games most big studios will continue to play it safe with their sequelitis and/or not stray too far from what they know already works leaving gaming imho a little bit dull and bland over time because everything is just more of the same over and over again. Its these indies that will push new gaming and gameplay ideas forward giving "new" ideas to the bigger studios to work with.

    In the end, Its better to have and not want then it is to want and not have.

    These indies aren't retro games, you can't get them from past generations.

    Games made by independent developers...
    Just seems the op is mainly referring to the more retro "styled" indy games.
