The Final Station, Valley, Song of the Deep, Adr1ft, Oceanhorn, and Oxenfree. All of these games are small $20 or less purchases, yet all are striking in how much they hit me. Some have gotten great reviews and stolen the hearts of critics. Still, others have been outright bashed and raged against, decried by many. Then there is that most common category, those that lay somewhere in the middle. For some reason or another all look and sound interesting to me and I am captivated and seemingly compelled to play them all.
I don't know why this is, but I know that it I feel it. The simple question is which one should I dive into first, and its there that I find myself stuck. Mafia 3 comes out in roughly 2 and a half weeks, I will be playing that, a lot of that, its perhaps my most eagerly anticipated game for the rest of the year, but what about this time before that?
Then of course there's the issue of what about after I get done playing Mafia 3. These are the small and mostly short games that I wish to experience. Some far more then others. Its likely I may not get to all of them in as timely a fashion as I would like, if I ever do even get to all of them. But these are the six indie games I want to play through this year, and regardless of everything else, I'd at least like to try as many as I can, who knows, maybe I'll love every single one of them and even if I don't, I'm sure they'll be worth a story at least.
