I dont know what metric you would use to back up such a claim.
My refined taste versus your plebeian taste, of course!

I'm intoxicated don't hate me
By sheer volume there are certainly more crap indie game per year than AAA games. But there are also a greater amount of quality indie titles than there are AAA titles annually. If you lined up the yearly ten 'best' AAA games against the yearly ten best indie games I'd wager the top ten indie games would come out ahead on a consistent basis.
Doom looks fun enough but it's mostly more of the same. And while indie games don't innovate THAT much they usually try to add some twists to preexisting formulas. AAA, for the most part, copy/paste the same stuff into a new/existing IP.

I personally think the idea that it takes 15-20 hours for a game to "git gud" is bullshit. If it doesn't grab me within an hour or two it's not good. Also, the idea that a response to the combat in TW3 sucks is "focus on the other stuff" is also bullshit. I played 5 minutes of Dark Souls and the combat sucked.

Wow. Way to bring it. I feel so down on myself with the masterful trash talk you just laid down.
So sorry to have a contradictory opinion. I'm sure there's games that I enjoy that you and several others can't stand. That's life. No need to spout useless drivel in an attempt feel superior.
Maybe Mooby(you know, the one providing a reasonable argument) was right and I didn't give it enough time, but at this point in my life I can't devote hours upon hours to master something that feels clunky to me.

Combat in dark souls is trash. It's purposefully clunky to make the game "hard." It's not a nuanced system that you have to master, it's a clunky system that you manage to overcome. Of course, saying anything derogatory about dark souls is met with the standard derp reply of git gud.
I won't say 'git gud' (although I should); but Dark Souls combat is not what I'd call clunky. Does it require timing? Yes. Best combat in a third-person action game I've played in years... probably a decade if we're going by the year a game was released. As the others have said the weapon variety and different attack moves make for a fairly deep melee combat experience. I was put off of it at first but on a second go I was hooked. I'd urge you to give it another chance unless you've already sunk a decent amount of time into it and didn't genuinely like it.

Is Umbrella Corps worth the $1 for single player? No interest in the traditional RE games. For anyone that doesn't have Dead Rising 2 OTR $7 for it plus the other stuff is a good deal. Dead Rising 3 for another $5 isn't bad, either. Dead Rising 2 and 2 OTR are 95% the same game with OTR being better.
Re: bad porting. I had no issues with DR2, DR2 OTR, or DR3. I know DR3 had a rocky launch but whatever optimization issues it had have long since been fixed.

My hang up on VR is that you're spending... what... $600 (I'm sort of guessing as I haven't looked that much into ) for tech to play what is maybe a handful of worthwhile games? I still think we're a decade or more off from VR gaming becoming substantive/not a gimmick/party activity.
