My Top Ten Stories of All Time: 7-6

Moving down the list, we’ve got my 7th and 6th favorite stories of all time!  Displaying some of the most thematically powerful storytelling I’ve experienced in my life, we’ve got some stories that, in my mind, have very undeniable quality, yet aren’t quite the things that have touched me on a personal level.  They’re wonderful stories, that I’ve loved to analyze and enjoy, and as such, have distinguished themselves as a cut above the rest.

And well, here they are.

My Top Five Indie Video Games!

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.  Not restrained by quality controls, by specific rules and ideas, the artist in question can experiment to their heart’s content.  And sometimes, absolutely great games are born as a result.

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!

Some of these games become actual apps, such as Kingdom Rush or Gemcraft, and others gain their own crazy followings, such as Clicker Heroes, and still others remain unknown, but great if you can find them, hidden gems, if you will.  There’s mountains of such games, and I’d just like to dedicate a post to those browser games that stuck out to me most.
