The work of an independent artist can be amazing to see sometimes.
Whether it’s indie music, an independently written webcomic, or an independent game developer, having that control is both a blessing and a curse.

I’ll just be talking about the five indie games that I enjoyed the most, the ones I believe deserve recognition as some of the best. There are some games that have grown beyond this, such as Minecraft, so I won’t include them- rather, the games I’ll include have been independently developed by individuals, or small groups at best. That being said, let’s see what the best of indie gaming has to offer!
