Indie gaming is big business. As more of the large developers churn out similar experiences, people are starting to look elsewhere. Here are just 5 of the best indie games I've ever played.
It's so sad everyone seems to forget Cave Story, with it being one of the greatest games of all time and everything.
Without a doubt I'd add Outlast to this list.
Just bought that on Xbox One, Absolutely terrifying, but loving it
I don't know why there's so many disagrees with your comment. It's one of the most terrifying games of all time.
Great game but not terrifying at all.
Don't Starve is so underrated. Bashed to death because it's "too hard", rocking 500+ days on PS4 save and 700+ on PC.
I agree, It's not really that hard. Once you know what you need to get through your first winter. You can easily keep going
Reign of Giants makes the game way harder too, people are too used to easy games these days.
I feel the same about Don't Starve as I do about Monopoly (board game).... That being that I'll always love it despite sucking at it.
I still don't know what I'm missing with Resogun. I feel like it should be called "Defender HD"
its a great game, Very tight, you need to start trying to get high score and get combo's going thats where the beauty of it is.
For me Shadow Complex, Limbo, Gucamelee, Hotline Miami, and Fez are the best Indies I personally played last gen. They all combined great gameplay, content, and re-playability in one. Other than that there's a few more that I enjoyed playing but nothing that wowed me.
Super Meat Boy Dust: An Elysian Tail Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons Limbo
For me: Journey, Hotline Miami, Guacamelee, Dead Nation, and Bastion Looking forward to play Hotline Miami 2, Don't Starve, Castle Crasher, No Man's Sky, Velocity 2x, Teslagrad, Transistor, Abzu, and Resogun
Oh and Bastion! Duh!
Still need to play Journey. Interesting list--though I haven't played most listed. I personally think Papers, Please and The Stanley Parable would be among my favorites.
I've played Stanley Parable demo and i think the concept really interesting, even though i still confused what kind of genre is Stanley Parable.
Yeah, that demo was an awesome to showcase (or not showcase?) what it's all about. The kind of genre that fits in with would be called a walking simulator. Like Dear Esther, Proteus, etc., only there's greater player agency in the variety of choice presented here.
Speaking of indies not heard nothing from that game company. They have to be dropping one soon could do with another chilled out game
Pixeljunk Shooter (Ultimate preferrably) SO GOOD. Also, Cave Story.
Mark of the Ninja, Fez, Flower, Trials HD. Love those!
Journey Bastion Transistor Sound Shapes
There are a lot of great games mentioned here, but I would like to throw out a couple more. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and the Swapper. Great games everyone should play.
How can it be that in a list of best indie games nobody mentioned Braid?
