No option for both Indie and AAA games? I bought both, but I bought a bit more AAA titles.

Same here. Although, now that I've listed the games I bought it would seem I actually bought more indie than AAA...

Anyway, Games I bought this year:

Garry's Mod(10$)
Terraria(5$ On sale)
Portal 2(30$ On sale)
Half Life Platinum Pack(11$ Boxed copy)
Half-Life 2: Episode 2(8$)
Potato Sack(13 Indie games for 42$)
Jedi Knight Collection(5 Games for 20$)

I won Arkham City and Half-Life 2 in contests, and I traded a TF2 hat for Half-Life 2: Episode 2. I also got Portal 1 for free in a Valve promotion thing. Oh, and Alien Breed 2 for free during the Steam Summer sale/contest thingy.

And I also bought Minecraft(22$) for a friend in exchange for the Sanctum Complete Pack, and the Magicka Complete Pack.

So in all, I've spent 148$, and got 37 games. That's over 500$ worth of games, lol.

So, I'd say a mixture of AAA, indie, and "Magic".(Sales an contests - NOT piracy)

Mostly indie though, especially if you count Valve as indie(Which I do).

Wouldn’t say I bought more AAA than indie... just that AAA cost more so defiantly a money sink :P

TrashCan-Man23 Nov 24 2011 replied:

That's pretty much mostly how it is - I'm just one of those people that wait for games to lower in price before making a purchase. Of course, there are exceptions.

Tanshaydar Nov 24 2011 says:

I've spent too much money on games that I could easily but a new laptop to play games on higher settings.
Most of them were Indie games, obviously.
I'm not a mindless shooter fan and my laptop can't handle Skyrim on even medium settings. So, I didn't spend money on some stupid games and Skyrim.

No money spent. Too much hyped crap around and dumbed down sequels not worth your money (unless you have brain-cancer, which some down-voting idiots seem to have)

Your probably getting down voted because your claiming people with a difference of opinion have 'brain cancer'.

The question however is: was the MMO indie or 'AAA'? I bet it wasn't indie.

BC2: Vietnam, Portal 2, M&B Warband, Stalker: Radioactive edition and BF3.

I guess those are all AAA titles, or is Warband a real indie game?
