5 stars for Enviro-Bear 2000. Always.
+1 for reminding me how much fun Cave Story was.
+1 for how boring and repetitive most of these other games seem when reduced to two-second clips.
-5 because Halo still sucks.
you are terrible at math
You default at 5 stars? Fuck you, star inflator!
Gonna play all these

Some of these look pretty fun. Cave Story set the bar pretty high though, at least gameplay-wise.
So much love for Canabalt.
Cho Ren Sha has got me through some very boring times. It's a billion times better than a lot of games you pay for, like TF2.
Also Dwarf Fortress, although the latest release is too buggy for me to enjoy in it's current state. Heard they fixed your dwarves melting in the rain though.
A lot of these have a very compelling style to them and look like fun.
Your tags are awful, a ton of these are great, and you should feel bad about yourself you joyless prick.
WHO WANTS DESSERT
I too enjoy playing:
for the millionth time, in your choice of either Pixel or Anime graphics and a heaping helping of pretentiousness as the creators breathless extol how brilliant and indie as fuck they are.
If Cave Story is not fun, then there are no fun 2D platformers and never have been. That's not really true. Anyway, I was too busy having fun while playing to notice whether or not it was pretentious.
Your complaint, your reason for being anhedonic here, is that out of the hundreds of games presented some games resemble other games? Yikes.
"All independent games are completely unique and also art" is a really stupid stance that nobody actually takes.
"All independent games are bad because, uh" is actually much stupider.
A lot of these look very fun, and I know from experience that Cave Story and (in smaller doses) Canabalt ARE fun. -1 star for the lame description.
Is 1:17 a Pac-Man clone with no ghosts?
Even if you cut out all this, there's still at least as much real new ideas as the big business model generates in the same time.
Just because something's overstated doesn't automatically mean there's no truth to it whatsoever. Unless you're way hella dumb.
I highly recommend Iji and Knytt, even though both are difficult to pronounce. Spelunky is awesome.
Every person every where should play knytt
look it up its awesome
I know what I'm doing with my vaction time this year.
