Why are all these "indie" games exact replicas of one another?

I thought these indie games were supposed to be unique... but they're all "quirky" sidescrolling platformers. why?

Who cares, if you like their game, give them more money.

Yup. Pretty much sums up the indie genre. It's "quirky"! And "new"!

No. It's not. It's the same god**** puzzle platformer as the last guy, with less production value.

I hate indie games.

Pretty sure CoD, Medal of Honour, Resident Evil, Dead Space 3, Uncharted, Tomb Raider, Gears of War, God of War, Castlevania, GTA, Saints Row, Asscreed 1, Asscreed2, Asscreed Bro, Asscreed Rev, and Asscreed 3 are not what one would call 'indie' games.

"Indie" is not a genre, it's a term used to describe the production budget.

You hate every game ever made that had a small budget?
