I'm part of the way through watching Indie Game: The Movie on Netflix, and today, Geoff uncorked his assessment of Mark of the Ninja, so I have indie games on the brain.
I'm quite happy to have seen the rise of indie games over the past decade or so. The question is: which indie games are your favorites, and why? What do they offer that big-studio titles don't, in your view? Do they include more risk-taking and creativity in ways that manner, or do they just satisfy a craving for a return to the games of our youth?
Or, if you don't care for indie games, tell us why not. I'd be interested in hearing that perspective, too.
