Quote from: Josiah Tobin on March 15, 2010, 05:11:11 AM... I agree with what you said regarding the pretentious/artsy/"you-tell-me-what-it-means" sort of indie games. I've tried and tried to understand and appreciate them but in the end they always just make me feel stupid, or left out of some wonderful joke I can't comprehend, which really is not a good thing for a game to make you feel (I believe).There was one game posted on TIGsource awhile back that had a huge multi-page barrage of positive reactions, but when I tried it all it really was to me was a boring, vaguely nonsensical adventure of a vertical line wandering around a world of strangely mutating/mirroring vectors or polygons or something. Perhaps I didn't understand the brilliance because I'm not a genius math student or gifted programmer? I don't know.

Quote from: Timmaah! on March 19, 2010, 02:37:25 AMHaha - neat. I thought it was some kind of rhythm game, and kept trying to play it as if I was 4 people! And I honestly cannot fathom how someone could feel personally affronted by something like this.
