See guys? This is why you shouldn't pirate games. Those development studios need more than just 3 or 4 million dollars. Even 24 million isn't enough. C'mon guys, cerealesly.

I have often thought about writing some sort of indie type game, my main problem is I am terrible at art both visual and musical lol
I guess I could always go total retro and make some sort of text game like Zork...

and to think there were indie devs complaining about how much money it costs them to make indie games :o

Not everyone is this established iLLNESS. There are independent studios that make a game and just make their money back over and over where failure results in the studio crashing and/or the assets sold.
There are different levels of indie from the five minute fun game to the successful game funded and released by a top level publisher.
