Most games I play are either Indie or A/AA games. What the big publishers produce as AAA games just ain't my cup of tea.

I don't like Hero shooters, Looter shooters, or realistic shooters, which means almost all modern FPS are not my thing, for instance. GTA and the like just bore me to death, same with racing simulations and sports games. Add in all those other massive open world games, and you'll get about 95% of what the big publishers produce these days, and none of it is anything of what I like.

As a result, I find my games with smaller publishers, with Indie devs, and Nintendo, since they didn't follow that AAA publisher's trend of just copying each other's game ideas.

Can't believe I am going to say this, but I agree. The feeling I have with AAA games is I've been there done that. I hate how a lot of these AAA games feel like a cinematic experience rather than an actual video game. Games should stop trying to be the next Citizen Kane of gaming and try to be the next chess of gaming.
