While I agree with D'Artagnan that we need to see how all these projects turn out, the short and long of it right now is that we have seen a major resurgence in a type of RPGs that was declared dead or uniteresting for at least a decade. And, maybe more important, maybe a chance for several small and mid-sized developers to gain financial independence if their games are successful.
Sure, there is a danger that KS drives become somewhat formulaic. And sure, new people and new ideas will have it more difficult, because, well, crowdfunding relies on finding a crowd. If you are an artist wanting to creat artsy games, or if you just suck at presenting your vision, your crowd may be small.
So, it's not a cure for all ails, but I am damn happy KS came around and shook things up.
