FuturLab is awesome as hell.

I loved them back when they were PastLab too.

To me, indies are a "catch 22". If successful, they could, potentially, bring other genres back into the AAA space. But, most indies just come off (to me) as shovelware, and I'm not interested. So, I don't buy them (which obviously doesn't help them become successful).

That's a really crappy attitude. Some of the best games I've played in the last 5 years have been indie titles.

Indies drive AAA devs to make better games, therefore they are a much needed arm of the industry.

Sorry but not, I prefer AAA titles always, there are many interesting indies titles out there, but too much showelware.

Do you wanna start the home cinema, sit comfortably in your sofá? A AAA title.

Do you travel in a car or metro, there's nothing to do?
A indie game or mobile game.
