Top 10 Great Xbox Live Indie Games You're Missing Out On

Kyle Arsenalt from TwoDashStash Writes:

The Xbox Live Indie Games section of the Xbox Live marketplace hasn't had the best reputation, with many perceiving it to be a dumping ground of shovelware and inferior clones of popular games (see: Castleminer Z and The endless Flappy Bird Imitators). I, however, having dug deep into the depths of this apparent cesspool, have come across some truly exciting and innovative titles.

There were so many awesome games, ones that could go toe-to-toe against the established Indie classics on the PC that I couldn't fit them all on one list. Without Further Ado: Here are Ten Great Xbox Live Indie Games That You're Missing Out On! (Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE, Xbox One)

So many interesting games I've never heard of.

Xbox Live IG has some really good games and some of these games launched careers.

I just take this as further highlighting the conundrum of how to manage indie games on the digital store front. You don't want the storefront to be this "cesspit" and you don't want the good indie games to be cordened off into the dark corner that only a tiny minority care to browse.

IMO the store front presence and management will be the thing that defines which platform is "best" for indies, from both a user and developer perspective. Annoying policies or drawn out certification processes take a backseat next to actually finding an audience for your game. Of course console sales is another big factor in that.
