With all this pushing Sony is doing with Indie games, it would be nice if they released a timed trial for all of them, say unlock the full game for one hour worth of playtime just to see if you would like it. Even though they are cheaper than AAA games, it's still hard to drop $15/$20 on something that could be a flop. This is probably the main reason I will never purchase one of them, a few have had me interested but not to the point of risking $20 on something I probably won't end up playing that much.
PS+ freebies haven't done a lot to change my mindset, yes there are some decent ones but every game so far I've stopped playing within a couple weeks at the most. Watching videos or reviews only goes so far with me. I know there are probably a few hidden gems out there, but I just can't justify dropping that money on a "chance." Just figured I would throw that out there, it could open up a whole market of people who think like me that won't give them a chance without trying it first...
Watching videos and reviews is usually enough for me but it can depend on the video game.
If my decision to purchase a video game hinges on its gameplay then I’m always going to think twice about adding it to my collection. With that being said, I’m more likely to take a chance with a $20 video game than a $60 one.
