Fan games: worth it or a waste of time?

 

There are fans that are so dedicated to a particular game or series that you’ll see some of them make their own game! Some of the games that I’ve seen over the years are pretty basic and sort of a let down compared to the original game or series that it’s based on. Others are incredible and even look a bit better than some of the bigger games in a series. Take Sonic Fan Remix for example. It’s just a fan game that a few people put together without a huge budget or anything like that. But that game looks farFan video games superior to Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1. It’s not even close, the Fan Remix looks far better. I played it once and outside of a few bugs it played really well too, so it was the whole package. I’ve seen and played several other Sonic fan games that weren’t really worth the time, but others that were. The fact that some fan games are as much fun as what the company puts out is incredible to me. As with all major games, you have to find what you’d enjoy playing and go down that road. Overall I’d say that fan games are very much worth a look if you’ve not done so already, but keep in mind that not all of them are going to be spectacular. What about you? Have you played any fan games that really captivated you?
