These artsy games seem like something I'm supposed to like because I'm grown up, and supposed to have refined tastes, and understand the emotion and all that other puke that the artist is trying to convey. When dissected, these artsy games it all boil down to mediocre game play wrapped up in a story or trippy visuals.
Games, beer, Movies, coffee, food; all have this artsy, indie side that I'm always shamed into trying. In Asheville I could hit a brewery a day and not go to the same on in a month. Out of all the crap they offer there may be one or two beers that I really enjoy, but the same thing can be said for bud light, corona, guiness, shocktop, blue moon, etc. etc.
I guess what i'm trying to say is these games (and beers, and foods) are neat distractions but its hard to beat PBR, Pizza, and Zelda.
