I’ve always enjoyed playing games on iOS. Back when I had Android or Windows phones, I always kept around an iPod Touch since I love the app ecosystem.
So to me, Apple Arcade seems awesome. Not only do I get more indie games coming to the platform in the style I’ve always enjoyed, but inclusion in Arcade guarantees that they won’t have shitty in-app purchases / timers / other awful free-to-play mechanics.
Some of the games will still undoubtedly be bad of course, but at least they’ll be bad because of design, rather than being good games otherwise ruined by bad monetization.
Also - I saw that one of the games included in Arcade is What the Golf? - that was one of my favorite games at PAX last year so I can’t wait to try it out.
