PlayStation Plus Once Again Shafts PS4 Gamers

Another month of free Indie games while others enjoy a AAA title.

PlayStation 4 gamers who subscribe to PlayStation Plus are gonna get shafted once again as all the free games being offered in April will be Indie titles.

While PlayStation 3 gamers have enjoyed titles like Yakuza 4 and Prototype 2 while PS4 gamers have been offered Transistor and Apotheon.

Sure some Indie games are fun to play but they appeal more to a nitch audince depending on the genre. However its becoming annoying that PlayStation 4 gamers are consistently being offered Indie titles while PS3 gamers have been offered a more diverse selection. 

How about some AAA titles like Killzone: Shadow Fall or Watch Dogs (someone should play it) because it feels like PS4 gamers have been getting the bottom end of the barrel. Meanwhile the last few AAA titles that were offered were either a Next-Gen port or a stand-alone expansion.

As a gamer all I ask is, enough with the free Indie games for the PS4. It’s already bad enough the console is not backwards compatible and that we have to pay extra for PlayStation Now. Must they consistently be force feeding us a bunch of indie games.

Indie games are only appealing if the audience enjoys the subject or genre, hence maybe one of them could be fun to play or it could feel like a waste. In fact the only time I play an Indie game is on my iPhone during the morning commute or while on the toilet.

I’m beginning to suspect that Sony is either trying to screw with their fans or whoever is responsible for the line up has an indie game bias and is forcing it onto the consumer.

The only gamers who actually enjoy the selections have been Indie gamers, who (like hipsters) seem to always have this false sense of superiority because they play games nobody knows about. It’s always cute to see a hardcore Indie gamer pretend to be better than the Glorious PC Master Race.

Sony should work to correct this problem by properly distributing the free games each month. The package should be one AAA title and two Indie game, not all Indie games and a middle finger to the gamers.
