Doom could be considered indie.
Quite a lot of Doujin games could be considered indie, too

What kind of heresy is this

Not QUITE indie, it was more a team of Net Yaroze guys in Japan getting funded by a bigger studio thanks to a prototype, but early game development didn't have broadband to facilitate a game's release without a publisher like we see today. Easily the finest 3D puzzle game I've ever played.

I guess the closest to indie would be the old doujin game releases of the 80s and 90s, lots of fun little concepts and the first real indie giant, Zun.

especially the games made by and for the publishers? You know, kind of what indie not is? Indie is not a suggestion of size or quality
