So, I could either have all the stuff on Kickstarter on the one hand OR I could have one Call of Duty franchise game. Hmm, tough choice, tough choice.

I'd probably take the big budget game, if it was a genre I enjoyed more than CoD.

If even a good handful of the games that were funded turn out to be really worth the investment I might change my mind, but I'd be surprised if that happened. Some of those projects will never hit the light of day and others are just disappointments selling a name to get made; there's still no real, playable proof that investors are getting a return they expect on these kinds of projects.
