Dead State Kickstarter

This Kickstarter looks to raise funds for Dead State, an upcoming zombie-themed survival/horror RPG from DoubleBear Productions (thanks Cliff), an indie developer founded by Brian Mitsoda (Black Isle, Troika, and Obsidian - writer/designer for Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines) and Annie VanderMeer Mitsoda (Obsidian, Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir). Here's a bit on the game:

Dead State is a compelling, high-tension RPG set at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. As society is beginning to fall apart, the player must organize allies, fortify a shelter, scout for food and supplies, and make uncertain alliances, attempting to hold together a group as humanity teeters on the brink of extinction. And although the zombies lurk as an ever present threat, the biggest obstacle to the player may just be other humans with the same goal: survival at any cost.

God, I miss the day when developers cared more about making the game they WANT to make instead of making the game they NEED to make.

I was going to rip into the rest of your post, but I'm just going to assume you were being silly with all the crazy exaggerations and incorrect 'facts'...

But this... Let's think about for a minute... Most game developers are gamers; in fact, I would dare say 90%+, including the 'business' people.

So is it really so hard to imagine that actual fans of wildly successful games, that are more of the same, like Call of Dooty, want to make more of those games?

Granted, not everyone at just about any game company is working on a game they want, but that's the nature of having a job; at least they're working with some cool shit : )
