The Steam client is now available to download for free from the Ubuntu Software Center. Ubuntu is the most popular distribution of Linux used by millions of people globally and known for its well-designed, easy-to-use customer experience." The beginning of the Steambox. We're on the cusp of a sea change in the gaming world.

Yeah, obviously not ALL "AAA" games are bad but you got to admit that many are and there have been some spectacular misfires as of late.

and still manage to do this "vfx masturbation" you mentioned.

Nah, those games are obviously NOT vfx masturbation since they're, you know, good.

but they are not a panacea to all of our gaming needs. These studios just do not have the resources to make the kinds of games I'd like, and I ain't the only one out here.

I see your point but it's also kinda like saying that you need big budget record companies to make good music.
