1)Pixel graphics. Lazy for the most part unless well done (see Metal Slug or Mercenary Kings)
2)Platformers. Stop it.
3)'Retro'. Which is a code word for my pixel art sucks so it looks old amicoolyet xDD

And of course the indie dev mentality and look doesn't help. Granted I'm generalizing as there are good indie games, they're just very rare.

I'll support indie games that aren't sidescrollers, lazy pixel art games, or zelda clones.

I did like hammerwatch butt that's only because it was a dollar

Because most indie games are just a cool idea implemented poorly, a basic platformer with pixel graphics or a combination of the two.

Too deep for me to piss away my money.

I've noticed a number of devs jumping ship to low-poly 3d stuff, and it's got me hyped as fuck.

Low-poly can look so good if the art direction is right. Shit be sleek as hell.

>tfw the best RPG of 2014 is some retro pixel RPG made by some random amerifat in RPG maker

Too many of them play on the nostalgia factor too much, essentially becoming sequels to older games, rather than contributing something new.

I went into it expecting a generic retroshit RPG and came out generally impressed with how original it was.

It's funny because the game isn't even a horror game, it's just a pixel RPG, yet it's unsettled more more than most triple A 3D Horror games out there.
