I noticed that I mostly play old games. AAA stuff, but are they still AAA if I play them with a time delay of 5 years or more?
I think it might depend on how they were developed/published. For instance, id games that came on shareware floppies would probably count as 'indie', but once they got big enough to publish, would be the archetypal 'AAA' game.
LoL/DOTA 2 would probably count as 'indie' in my book, as would 'Counterstrike' - those were games whose geneses were in the mod community. But there are certainly grey areas - L4D started out (internally) as a mod of Half Life/Counterstike, but does that mean it's 'indie'?
Anyway, not meaning to start a debate on the 'nature' of indie, it seems to me that there is a grey area as well as some starkly black and white areas.
