With the current price of AAA games, I can't afford to buy into one without knowing if I'll enjoy it first. If there's no demo available, my only option is to pirate it and see if I enjoy it. With Steam/Desura I can easily purchase the game, copy over the pirated files, and continue where I left off.

Indie games are usually cheap enough that I can buy into one without feeling too bad if it's a poor game. What's $5 wasted once a week? The $20 indie games I'm still on the fence about, though.

The fact that the "most powerful" console, the PS3, is running hardware that would be laughed at in a PC these days shows how much the static nature of consoles is holding back the development of 3D technologies for gaming.

Consoles aren't "killing gaming", they're killing innovation in 3D technology. Cryengine 3 shows how amazingly beautiful games can be on a PC with modern hardware, and also how laughably low resolution the same scene has to be to run at a playable framerate on a PS3 or 360.

I would easily have parted with $20 for a game like this with a single player campaign as well.

I find it hard to justify paying twice as much as TF2 for a mod with 1/10 the content made by people with much less experience.

Free to play, except you can't play unless you donate money.

It sounds like you're just attempting to exploit legal loopholes to make a quick buck off the mod.

I'm fairly certain that what you're doing (Donations required to play the mod) is illegal.

One could interpret this as selling the mod, which is against the Source SDK ToS and could land you all in hot water.

Will this be a similar length as the original release? I can't see myself paying more than $2.50 for a 20 minute game, no matter how long you spent making it look pretty.

I've bought much better games for $5, including Chime, P.B. Winterbottom, Torchlight, Killing Floor, TFC, Lead and Gold, Lugaru HD, Aquaria, Garry's Mod, etc.

You'd be out of your mind to charge the same price for something like this.

Unfortunately, the developers seemed to have missed what made each game great. 6/10.

Dunno, I bought about 50 games a few weeks ago for $80. The benefit of being a PC gamer :)

Very well thought out post! It's nice to see someone paying attention to the little things like this.

I'm one of the people who will gladly press A and skip through all of the introduction if it's presented as a wall of text, but I also hate it when I'm forced into a slow-moving and counterintuitive tutorial level (You may have played Prometheus, which is a great example of a bad tutorial level).

You've obviously never played Penumbra or Eternal Darkness if you actually think Amnesia is innovative in any way whatsoever.

It's a great horror game, but it's almost identical to its predecessors (Penumbra) with a few generic horror game twists thrown in.

And Minecraft didn't really innovate either. It just built on the existing concepts from Infiniminer.

Really disappointing year for Indie titles if none of the top 5 "innovative" games actually innovated anything.

Link3737 Dec 17 2010, 9:03pm says:

I don't think Minecraft really deserved the title of "most innovative" considering it literally started as an Infiniminer clone (In Notch's own words, by the way).

How is a clone of another indie game considered innovative?

Link3737 Dec 5 2010, 2:57am replied:

I think that's extremely unlikely. The entire game is based on Fallout 2, including all of the original game's assets.

They'd have to, literally, rebuild the entire game from scratch to make it independent.

Obviously you're an idiot since you don't know that Minecraft is based on Infiniminer

That being said, this game looks like Infiniminer HD, not Minecraft.

I loved the prototype! I hope the final game keeps up the good sense of exploration as the first town. I didn't really like the volcano section all too much, but finding the lighthouses was pretty fun.
