When it comes down to indie games in general it seems like many titles have shined in the Nintendo Switch within the past two years. When we look at 2018 we got to see titles such as Celeste, Moonlighter, Fe, Light Fall and many others appear on the Nintendo Switch. While the games just mentioned also appeared on consoles such as the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One in 2018 there is no question that there were much bigger titles such as Monster Hunter: World, God of War, Dragonball FighterZ, Red Dead Redemption 2, and others that attracted the attention of many people on those consoles throughout the year. While the Switch had titles such as Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, Super Mario Odessey and Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Octopath Traveler that received mainstream attention throughout the year in some way indie titles seemed like more of an attraction on the hybrid console opposed to its competitors.
A lot of indie games we see do not have the same type of budget that major titles for the PS4 or the Xbox One has but they are still enjoyable because they feel like modernized versions of old school 2D gaming which was popping the 80’s and early 90’s. While most PS4 and Xbox One titles places emphasis on high definition 1080p visuals using game engines such as Unreal indie games seems to focus more on retro-like gaming which definitely stands out more on the Switch than any other game system.
