Pachter: Indie Games Not “Game-Worthy GOTY” Experiences, “They’re More Like Snacks"

Posted on Sunday, January 26 @ 12:38:35 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter has made his thoughts on indie games known, claiming that they're not "game-worthy Game of the Year" type experiences, but rather "snacks" when compared to the full meals that are big budget triple-A titles.

Speaking on the latest episode of the Bonus Round, Pacther said, “I don’t consider all those things—games as in game-worthy game of the year. They’re more like snacks." He then went on to clarify, "But they’re great snacks and we don’t only eat three meals a day. We have snacks and we have dessert."

Do you agree with Pachter's assessment of indie games? Are they mere "snacks" in the overall meal we consume as gamers?
