It is a godawful name. Will have put a whole lot of people off I reckon. Also the first hour isn't great.

But it's an amazing game.

I think I played that up to the first main boss in the cave and it was okay.

Both the name and the cover art/thumbnail image for Remnant massively put me off playing it.

It just screams "gooseberry fool"

I think the Yakuza games are good examples of AA.

I have a strange relationship with Yakuza (I've only played 0 but they are ALL now on GP).

I boot it up, absolutely love it but have no inclination to boot it up again, I was the same with Titanfall 1. :fp:

I always class the Frogware Sherlock Holmes games on PS4 as AA games, they made on a budget with that typical jank but they're great games.

The OuterWorlds might be another, I wLuld have said stuff like Hades and Outer Wilds but do they fit in the A/Indie bracket instead?


Outer Wilds fits into the overrated bracket.

What about the witness :shifty:

I need to give The Witness another shot, it didn't grab me when I gave it a go a year or so back

Yea The Witness is definitely indie.

Sherlock Holmes games are a good shout, but I think you'd be hard pressed to call them hits. Maybe I should give Remnant a go.

A Plague Tale: Innocence was fantastic.


Always good to see Plague Tale getting some love. Great game
