All the power to the indie crowd. They can make some of the most creative games out there.

Makes some great points though, even if games aren't perceived as art, they still need to bring SOMETHING new to the table so they don't stagnate and bore the audience. That being said, a lot of people seem to like buying the same junk over and over again!

Yea, which really sends out the wrong message to publishers - take Sonic for example. People still buy it no matter how terrible the game is.

Some Indie games have a phenomenal amount of heart and soul. Others are just crap, hoping to make a sale based off the fact that they're under the 'indie' label. It's the same as the movie industry, there are 'fun' movies and then there are 'fantastic' films. To each their own!

Thanks, Indie folks!
