One thing that's bothers me is that Indie is now being used by Fanboy in a negative connotation, As if if its an indie game its not good enough or low class.

I even read many comments snubbing indie title and even someone trying to downplay how awesome puppeteer looked by calling it an Indie game( never mind that its made by one of Sony premier 1st party studio ) His comment did surprise me, but even more so the response he got by people defending the title as if calling it an Indie was something negative.

Indie is a force to be reckoned with and i think variety is awesome.

I think what people fear is the flooding of low quality/budget game that we might we showed/spammed everywhere and this in the long run could hurt showcasing real gems.
Unfortunately the rating system on most online store is broken and doesn't mean much and most of the title that are actual gems might not be able to buy time on the front page.

I'm past adoration of indie games, but recognize it's importance.

That said, there is just too much crap digging to find that one gem. They exist and sometimes wow what a gem, but they are very very few and far between. That is the main problem.

Also, all indy games I have seen have very crappy storylines and mood. They mostly stick to fun game mechanics, and that is fine, but I gravitate towards more compelling experience with storytelling.

I by far prefer AAA games.

I don't adore them, I simply dislike that it's being looked at like it's a lesser form of gaming.

I like my aaa games as well but they are not all that matters.

"I like my aaa games as well but they are not all that matters."

To me AAA games is what matters the most. Otherwise, I could just play the myriad of smartphone games on my existing Windows Phone or get a dirt cheap Ouya.

I don't, because they don't hold my attention very long.

I love 'em. So much great stuff can come from developers and teams with lower inertia. We may see big budget cinematics in AAA titles, but innovation belongs to the indies. Hecker, Rohrer, Cuthbert, Blow, Chen and their ilk are geniuses.
