    I put it in euros as it is the default price that everyone sees when buying it. :)

    sweet mother of god ive never had such a boner

    I have a lot of them already but the rest are new so I'm definitely going to check that out. It also reminded me to talk about a few more.

    Stone Soup: Crawl and Nethack are widely considered the best Rogue-likes of all time, and for good reason. Crawl is my personal favorite, tons more customization. But Nethack has more than a few crazy moments of "why did the developers code that in? I mean, I'm glad they did cause damn, but why?"

    Yume Nikki. Bizarre. Terrifying. Those are the only two words that I can think of to describe this game. I kinda have a problem with the complete and utter lack of direction, but I guess that's the point.

    Iji is one of my favorite games ever. Metroid with RPG elements and an amazing, branching story, though there are never times where you realize that you have to make a choice, you just continue the way that you normally would. Then when you realize what you did later, it really makes you think.

    Damn nice thread!

    Unreal World - Survival Roguelike developed by a couple of finnish guys. If you REALLY want a survival game - this is as survival as it gets. Very cool don't judge by the graphics.

    Aquaria - Metroidvania game with gorgeous 2d graphics. Great story too.

    Spelunky - Made by one of the guys that worked on Aquaria. It's a cave exploring game that is extremely brutal but very fun. Caves are randomly generated each time you start over.

    AI War - RTS/4x/tower defense/grand strategy. Combine that with the most cunning and brutal AI I have ever seen in a game. Amazing game.

    I've been wondering about this game! Looks fun but hard. I've also been trying to get into the beta of World of the Living Dead

    Looks pretty cool and a great use out of Google Maps! :D Hopefully it will play on my laptop. Just signed up for Beta testing with two emails. :D

    I've been looking forward to a game called Fez for ahwile now, it looks like it's going to be an amazing platformer. c':

    Definitely going to consider getting Fez on XBLA when it comes out. Limbo and Braid are some of the awesome indie games that came out on XBLA as well.

    Yeah, it sucks, i'd much rather have it on Steam. :c

    Sanctum, Terraria (herp) and Minecraft (derp). That's pretty much it. I don't like many games, I'm a bit critical when it comes to that sort of thing.

    I can't believe nobody has mentioned VVVVVV! It's a fun but difficult platformer where you switch gravity instead of jumping. Makes for some interesting jump puzzles. It, unfortunately, isn't free though, so you have to be willing to shell out 10 dollars or so for it. It's WELL worth the price tag though.

    As for freeware, I would have to recommend Bonesaw: The Game and Desktop Dungeons mainly, as well as Cave Story. Eversion is a lot of fun too, but don't play it if...
    Well, I'll just leave you with what the game warns you with: "Not suited for children or a person with a nervous disposition".

    Well, that's KINDA what it said. Close enough. :3

    Just looked at VVVVV, it was £3.99 which is a good price. Going to check out the demo due to it requiring 2ghz and I have 2.2ghz.

    This. This so much.
    Aquaria is fantastic and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good 2D game.
