I had been complaining recently about my lack of motivation. For a while there I simply could not be bothered playing games. But today I'm more excited about games than I've been since Christmas, for two simple reasons: Fez and Trials Evolution. Then I remembered that I absolutely loved Journey. I realised — every game I've loved this year has been a downloadable game. My gaming habits have really changed, and I was wondering if you guys were going through something similar?
Maybe it's cyclical, because I went through a period of enjoying the big budget releases — Skyrim, Arkham City, Uncharted 3 — but at the moment it's all about downloadable games I can enjoy in short bursts.
What are you guys playing at the moment, and are you starting to become more interested in smaller indie games, or do you still see them as a diversion?
