We thought we’d start doing a weekly poll at DDNet, and give people a chance to share their thoughts regarding various topical… topics. Each week on YouTube and Twitter we’ll have a different question, and then we’ll collate your thoughts and share the results each week.
This week we’ve got a poll that shows some fascinating data. We asked people which of the gaming platforms is the most supportive of indie games (aside from PC, of course, because the PC platform is streets ahead, and thanks to the likes of itch.io alone, it’s incomparable).
It is, perhaps, unsurprising that the Switch came out on top, with 64 per cent of all votes. Not only has Nintendo proven that the Switch platform is open to indie games of all walks (for better or worse, it certainly ranks second after Steam for sheer shovelware clogging up the “new releases” each week), but Nintendo does dedicate significant resources to supporting indies, hosting directs that are Nintendo game-free, to give the indies a chance to shine, and displaying key games prominently on the Switch news section.
Anyhow, that’s enough analysis! Thanks to everyone that voted in the poll, and we’ll be back with another one at the end of the week!
