These days "AAA" is losing its meaning. The lines between indie and "AAA" are becoming more blurry.


Hardly. I don't like 99% of Indie-games that are being released, they rely way, WAY too much on a single trick to try to make the game look innovative or cool. Or they go for the pixelated look to hide the fact that they just do not have the resources to make anything more impressive graphically. AAA-games, on the other hand, are given millions in budgets to work with and actually create the resources needed.

Don't get me wrong, it's great that there are good venues for Indie-devs to release their games under and all that, I just cannot agree with your assessment.
