If I could play the devil's advocate... I do not think it's the matter of remakes and indie games and whatnot. I think people who make the game has to have passion for what they do. My favourite example is Zelda: BotW (unless you count it as remake?). There was care and style in the game, everything felt vibrant and engaging. So, if the developers actually care, it doesn't matter if the studio is small or big, they will do a good job. Of course, indie developers usually display more passion than the big companies, but I wouldn't paint it all with a single brush.
There is also Divinity series, Red Dead, Witcher, DmC - many of them belong to series, and developer has time to adapt and change things, but I do not think they can be counted as remakes, just sequels. And as stand alone, I believe they are an example that big developers can release a great game, they just need to give a damn.
