Indie Gamers have Inner Angst

Not to be Captain Obvious, but I feel the urge to inform you that this week I am featuring Independent Games. Over the last few days I have felt it necessary to dedicate my time to writing about those who spend countless hours producing outlets for us that are high in creativity and low in price.

High five!

Indie developers put in all those hours to hopefully get their lil’ game out there to stand out amongst the sea of other games. Sometimes they do get noticed but most never shine through the murky waters of mainstream gaming.

It is because of this that indie developers featured this video at this years’ Independent Game Festival awards:

As funny as it is, the sponsors for the video itself are major publishers. (Sony, Microsoft..etc) ;D Such hypocrisy begs the question: Do the little guys need the big guys to survive? Even more interesting, if you could play little indie games or major names for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
