An indie game used to mean a game that was released without the financial support of a large publisher. Nowadays it can mean a game published by a small publisher, like Devolver Digital. Both Little Big Adventure games were published (at least originally) by EA in Europe and Activision in North America. Even back then, that is as far away from being an indie game as you could be.

Having said that, neither of those companies would publish something like LBA today. They were not indie games in their time, but they are closer to modern indie games than they are to modern AAA games, so they might still be interesting and relevant for your channel. The fact that neither EA or Activision would touch them today is a good example of how games publishing has changed over the decades.
