A gamer from a previous generation. I miss the 80s but couldn't live without the gadgets of today. I'm a developer by trade (business applications) and am playing around with XNA as a hobby (when I'm not playing games).
My gaming interests are wide starting from platformers and point and click adventures through to multiplayer FPSs and MMOs and many of the games inbetween.
Why do all the new genres have acronyms and the older genres tend to have long names? Young whippersnappers nowadays with their textspeak! ;)
I just spotted another "pay what you want" Indie Bundle style site that allows you to split your purchase between the developers and a charity. This is the 4th or 5th indie bundle site I've seen recently and was just wondering what people make of it.
Personally I follow 2 bundle sales sites: Indie Royale and Humble Bundle. Any more than that and I cannot play the games fast enough. As it is I can't purchase every bundle of theirs and expect to finish every game, which is why I'm skipping this humble bundle. I have SMB and NightSky. I'd love Shank but would prefer it on Xbox so I think I'll just buy it there instead of spending that money on the bundle. At least I'm supporting the indie and more likely to actually play all my games.
Is anyone else having a game overload with all these sales? Are the bundles getting diluted by having so many or is more exposure a good thing?
Is more choice good or are we risking option paralysis where we don't know what to do so we do nothing?
Personally I think that more indies getting exposure is always good, but the bundles still need to be careful about maintaining a quality standard or risk the consumer having a bad experience and moving away from the indie purchases.
Any thoughts on the matter?
