2014: Year of the Indie?

Is is time for Indies to be noticed for their ambitious drives? 2014 seems to be a great year for Indies to impact the gaming industry. (Casual games, Culture, Dev, Industry, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, PS4, Tech, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Both Journey and The Walking Dead received numerous GOTY awards. I think indies have a great deal of respect. This gen and last have and are making them more accessible to more gamers.

"Both Journey and The Walking Dead received numerous GOTY awards."

Exactly the two games I thought of when I saw the title. Indies are already an acknowledged force in the industry, except to those who downplay those titles as somehow less than "real" games.

I don't play many indie games I am sure one will get interest sooner or later.

Well, Shin'en is definitely on a roll, and I cannot wait to give Mighty No. 9 and Cryamore a play, so yeah, I'd say Indies are coming into their own.

2014 will come out strong for next-gen games.

I can tell you 2014 won't the year of android consoles. These things doesn't have appeal to consumers much.

I have to say , indie games have been some of my favourite games so far in the last few years, i really cant wait to see what games are thought up next. No one can deny that some indie games have far out done the big budget games in the last gen. I know its not an indie game but i really REALLY want a new katamari game on the PS4.
