See this is a post giving your opinion, you actually give some good reasons for what you think. To a certain extent I agree with the lack of quality in the games industry, but this doesn't mean people shouldn't enjoy or play indie games. Frankly it's better that people reward developers who are thinking outside the box. It rewards innovation, and as those small developers grow, they'll be able to afford more resources for "bigger" games that they can put some new ideas and creativity into, rather than another shooting gallery.
Also I know a lot of your posts aren't serious, some make me laugh, but when it comes to discussions, you often get ridiculous if people don't share your opinion
