While I applaud indie titles whole-heartedly, I can count the number of indie titles on one hand that I haven't bought, played once, and deleted, sure I'd never even come back to them again. They tend to have a lower retension/play rate in my life than iphone apps.

All a matter of taste, I guess. This year I've played far more indies than mainstream games. Grimrock is easily my GotY still, I still play Frozen Synapse a lot and SpyParty, when it finally comes out, will probably captivate a lot of people if the beta is any indication.

Me, I find indies to deliver in quality and fun far more times than I found mainstream games.

I hadn't heard of Grimrock I'm gonna go check that out it looks good.

Frozen Synapse was cool for about 5 minutes and then it just... got boring for me.

I keep trying because I want to encourage indie development, but I haven't found something that "hits" yet.

Grimlock was too restrictive for me (people whine about "on rails" but this game is on a track. Yes, you can choose where that track goes, but the choice to make a first person tile based game isn't one I agree with - it feels too much like first person Zork, only everything you explore looks identical," and I hated Frozen Synapse being a real time game.

Try Mount & Blade, though. Man, I put 7 hours into that game in 2 sessions. Far too much fun.

I keep meaning to get to M&B.

If you get it and find the multiplayer aspect fun, for me M&B:Warband MP is the best fun you can have right now in MP, get the Napoleon expansion. It may look crude but damn that expansion has more fun packed into it than 99% of the games out there right now.
