Independence Day: The Top 10 Indie Games

GP: "Creating video games takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Any game developer would tell you that. At least, they should. But there’s a difference between working hard with a lot of professionals while big-name publishers dedicate a lot of money into a project and working hard with few to no other people besides yourself while being on an extremely limited budget. These types of games are known as independent games for those very reasons.

But out of all these indie games (not to be confused with Indiana Jones games), which ones actually shine? Which out of all the many low-budget games out there are the ones that are worth playing? Well, in the spirit of Independence Day, I thought we should look into that. Ranging from retro platformers to blocky builders, here is a selection of 10 indie games (in no particular order) that are worth your time."

I think I'd have to agree for the most part. Although I still personally don't really get Braid. I understand that it was revolutionary for the unique time manipulation component, but I just didn't find it to be a terribly compelling experience.

I really enjoyed Braid. I picked it up because of all the praise and I didn't like how it looked. How wrong I was. There is just something about the sense of accomplishment when completing puzzles that just drives me forward in games. Sorry to see you didn't enjoy the experience.

Well you look at that, no Amnesia.....

MHenderson1989d ago

No Amnesia, but! Journey. It could've been Journey 10 times and it'd be accurate.

Keep in mind I haven't played a lot of games.

Kyosuke_Sanada1988d ago

Run to the store and play will not regret it....

Moby-Royale1988d ago

I second that, Kyosuke.

I have it on my backup Acer Laptop and it can run on medium settings(admittedly I am no pc gamer). My point being you shouldn't have to worry about running it.

It is a terrific first-person game. Google a video review or two.

No Amnesia or Binding of Isaac?

grailly1988d ago

this list only had the most obvious choices, not saying they are bad choices, but a list of the 10 most sold indy games would have seen the same result

KaptainJ1988d ago

And they sold well because they are great games, hence why they're on the list.

StrongMan1989d ago

Why isn't Flower on that list?

r211988d ago
