Indie games (927 votes)
AAA games (983 votes)
AAA games here, mostly because of mods, cRPG and RTS games.
Would be nice to see more isometric RPG & RTS indies, i.e. hardcore RPG/RTS. It's a pity one of such indie projects, The Broken Hourglass, was abandoned.
Hardcore Isometric Real Time Strategy coming up. Give me a few months.
You are awesome. That is all.
Indie games for future !
Been mostly AAA games but its gettting close to more Indie games :)
I'm the same. I used to only play AAA games, but now that I found this place, indie games are creeping up into my games list and dominating my hard drive.
Mostly AAA games, but increasingly indies. I think the reason is that the Internet, which is the primary way of advertisement/contact/distribution for indies, wasn't as widespread some years ago. But if the current trend carries on, I could see indies directly competing with AAA's. Who will win? Gamers will :).
Yes, and besides, Indies are usually cheaper and many of them are extremely enjoyable & addictive - one deadly combination.
AAA games for the most part. (the mods are mostly the reason for playing AAA games). Indies FTW!!!
Are we talking recently, or throughout our whole life? If it's the latter, then it's definitely AAA for me, but in recent times as I focus my spending elsewhere, I turn to indie games more often for a cheap yet awesome source of entertainment. Plus I feel good about supporting up-and-coming developers.
I had to say AAA games because, I've been playing games for 30+ years and the indie scene was no where near this prolific until recently. The indie games are quickly overtaking the AAA though.
Been playing games for a good 30 years and making games for a good 25 years, so "AAA", of course.
But the more interesting (to me) games are quickly becoming the "indie" games.
I have no idea what AAA is... :S
Triple A, like, 5 stars...? Big name companies.
A short and dirty explanation: AAA games are games you'd buy on a disc for your console. Indie games are the ones that you can only find as downloadables in the store. Obviously not the end-all-be-all definition, but...
A lot of the indie titles have similar quality to the AAA titles that I play. I play mostly indie titles because they are much cheaper and sometimes free. I also play a lot of AAA games, though, because I play a lot of retro PS1 and N64 titles, for example. ;)
I think I'm about split evenly, actually...at least in terms of gameplay time. In terms of sheer number that I own, indie games take the prize with no doubt.
