      Gris is the biggest one
      there's also that 3D game about a sea-sunken civilization and a little black creature girl
      I'm sure there are more but their names escape me.
      I'm more familiar with indie games that are about death and moving on

        Gris, no joke, fucked me up. By coincidence, I played it while I was grieving for my grandfather's death. I'd have to stop playing for a while, from time to time. Even today, I can't listen to the soundtrack. It just dredges up memories.

      Oh yeah they forgot one type, the "funny" one, now I don't know what this one is like but my experiences with indie stuff that wants to be funny is that it tries REALLY hard for better or worse, bonus points for the 90s adventure game callback because why not

      I'm glad Ganker is finally waking up to indieshit
      I know this is hard to believe, but Hollow Knight is 6 years old. There have been zero good indie games since then.

      "indieshit" is not real criticism, talk about real videogames or fuck off

      They seem to have forgot about RPG maker games

      Too much association with adult games probably, the point of bait it's to be vague on purpose I don't recall the last time Ganker hyped up a RPGmaker one that didn't include some huge degeneracy on it

      Earthbound-likes were a natural offshoot of the JRPG genre exploring other scenarios than old fantasy and the only reason they're "EB likes" is because the japs were so creatively bankrupt it took like 20 fucking years for the idea to catch on

    Roguelike has become an adjective

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Yeah, it used to be the core of the game. Stuff like FTL or Isaac where runs would be significantly different from each other. Now it just means "We're too lazy/untalented to bother with proper level design"

        Anonymous

        Nowadays roguelike as an adjective tends to mean "run-based with procedural level generation", which, to be fair, is a very good general structure for games designed to be replayable
        What gets really interesting is when you realize that pretty much any game with a hard restart on death made prior to the mid 90s can probably be repurposed as a roguelike if you can get a functional level generator in there
