So, for all intents and purposes if you hear about an indie game the chances are itís decent. It would have to be for you to hear about it.
A quick glance at Steam's indie section also shows plenty shit games that I personally have heard of before. Independent developers are becoming increasingly visible because of everyone support them; ironically, they pretty much stopped being obscure, especially with Steam putting them up on the front page along with the heavy hitters, or bunching them up into seductively discounted packs on many occasions.
