Those two titles sound like the worst of the worst indie shovelware but they aren't nearly as bad as what you might expect. But they are extremely crass and juvenile, which is something that you would never see in a retail or XBLA game. So they always end up in the list because people are talking about them.Princess Skittles said:You're right, to some degree. Regardless of this, seeing Baby Maker Extreme and Try Not to Fart in the top two spots of the Most Downloaded games list every week (along with pretty much everything in that list) has to be a huge demotivator for anybody not developing pure garbage. It's EXTREMELY damaging to the entire service to have these types of games on there.
The impression I'm getting with XBLIG is that the ability to stand out of the crowd trumps production values. Humor goes a long way. It's the same concept behind viral YouTube videos. That might decrease the number of high production value games but it might also encourage more garage programmers to contribute.
