About Us

PSXBoxIndies is a reviews site dedicated to reviewing interesting console indie games and niche titles. Ever notice how only the "big" indies ever get any coverage, but there are 5-6 more that get released every week that get nothing?  Those games deserve coverage too!  They cost money.  People can buy them.  And people deserve to know whether they're good or not.  Other sites aren't doing a good enough job with console indie games, so we're here to pick up the slack. In addition to indies we cover niche genres like anime games and stuff like Farming Simulator and hunting and fishing games because they don't really get the proper coverage they deserve and we think we do a decent job of it.

We cover Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch titles with a focus on indie an "AA". Once in a while we might toss a "AAA" game in as well, but it will never be our main focus.

Review Practices

We review games in a non-traditional way. No scores. No boilerplate Gameplay+Graphics+Sound+etc. format. Just our real honest opinions about more specific aspects of games rather than trying to cover everything. This is more fun for us, and hopefully, more useful for readers. 

Prior to 2019 we reviewed games on a 10-point scale, specifically, five stars with half-stars.  We use the entire scale, which means a 5/10 is simply mediocre, not bad.  Below a 5 are bad games.  Above a 5 are good games.  Simple.

If we received a review code from a publisher / developer, we will disclose that on the review page.


We will try to post gameplay videos of every game that we can to accompany our reviews.  We feel like quick looks and Let's Play-style videos are better than doing video reviews, so that is what we'll focus on.  You can see all of our PSXBoxIndies videos, as well as many others, at our Eric & Andrew Versus YouTube channel here - https://www.youtube.com/user/gferic/featured
