I don't really play a lot of story based indie games, mostly just indie visual novels. These would have to be the favorites that I can think of out of the indie games/content I have played.
Cinderella Phenomenon, Valentines Otome, Enderal (Okay, I know this is a mod of Skyrim but it creates it's own unique world).

I am a hardcore gamer, that has played shitloads of games from age 18 to 50.

But your questions are not easily answered - since what I look for in a game has changed a lot over the years.

18 - 29: Zelda, Metroid, Chrono Trigger, Lufia 2, Earthbound, Final Fantasy, Breath of Fire, Secret of Mana

30 - 45: Titan Quest, Everquest, Lord of the rings, World of Warcraft, Vanguard, Diablo 3, Guild Wars 1+2

45 - 50 Torchlight 1+2, Grim Dawn, The elder scrolls, Stardew Valley, Hero of the kingdom 1+2+3,

For me, it's all about gameplay. Never interested in the story, or the cutscenes. To long dialogs or cutscenes, that I cant use ESC on is a turn-off.

So what did I look/looked for in my games?

18 - 29: Exploration, puzzles, find every hidden place, find all armor/weapons possible.

30 - 45: Exploration, Crafting, Competative to get best gear/weapons/augments. Scheduled work around raidtimes.

45 - 50: Exploration, Crafting, Character enhancement, Solo games, Relaxed gameplay.

I can't give you favorite games, but all games I mentioned are games with replay value for me. That I have spent considerable game time in.

To think of the female buyers, might be a good idea to get more sales: https://www.pcgamer.com/researchers-find-that-female-pc-gamers-outnumber-males/

4. Name your 3 favorite, story based, Indie games?
um... does my own count? Lol
I haven’t really had the chance to properly sit down. And play any indie games, I’m either playing FF or another game I’ve owned for years, or trying to make a game. Sorry!


For the record, for female gamers like myself. Don’t automatically assume we want a female lead. While ff13 was one of my favourites because of the diversity in the party, my fav character in that game was actually Snow. And also, pushing a romantic thing in a game actually sucks, mostly because it never seems to ring true, the relationship always seems very juvenile.

I would suggest if you want to make a game that speaks to more people, men and women alike, then watch firefly. That is literally the only tv show I’ve ever watched that actually made me enjoy the women on screen, because they were written like actual people, everyone in the show was an actual person, and it shows just how well things can be done.

To be honest i have little knowledge on the indie side and havent touched any "story-based" indies, as i moslty play action or casual indies so besides your *obligatory Undertale comment here* i guess (and i dunno if it counts) the Touhou games (specially Hisouten).

4. Name your 3 favorite, story based, Indie games?

Uhh the only one I've really played that was heavy on story was Lost Ember and I really liked that, I havent played much else.

But, I just want to add if you're looking to drag in a bigger audience, you'd do it by making good and relatable characters rather than a world or plot. Sure, they help but if you have amazing characters it'll be a million times better than having an amazing plot or world.

Been putting this off because I suck at coming up anything that says, "pick a favorite X" because my favorites change often. Here goes anyway~

1. What are your 3 favorite story based games? (can be either RPG or adventure)
Final Fantasy Tactics
Eternal Poison
Drakengard 3*

*Note: I rated the 3 above based on story presentation specifically. In terms of actual gameplay, Drakengard 3 annoyed the crap out of me with its "collect every weapon in the entire game to unlock the last area in the game" nonsense and its horrible rhythm-based final boss--nothing like any of the other bosses. I doubt it'll get much in terms of replays because of that. Still, I loved the deeply-flawed characters and story presentation overall.


2. Who are your 3 favorite video game characters? (from any game)
Thage (Eternal Poison)
Zero (Drakengard 3)
Mario (What, I love Mario games which makes the character grow on me)


3. Name your 3 favorite video game worlds / setting? (ie, FF6 or FF7 or chrono cross etc)
The "Star Trek" universe (I can say this because I play Star Trek Online!)
Azeroth (World of Warcraft, because I'm an addict)
Early-gen Final Fantasy (In general. Chocobos, moogles, black mages, etc are all like comfort food)


4. Name your 3 favorite, story based, Indie games?
Epic Battle Fantasy 5
Mardek
...that's about it
