Well if you're like me then you love indie games and don't understand at all why game companies can't make games half as good as some of these people making indie games. Anyways here's some awesome indie games I've played over the years:

Highly recommended:
[list]
Tower Of Heaven (http://gmc.yoyogames.com/index.php?showtopic=444060) - Beautiful soundtrack and very nostalgic graphics if you played alot of gameboy games growing up. It's a nice challenge but at the same time not too challenging.
Pretty much all of konjak's work - Konjak is a god at sidescrolling indie games he has 3 pretty short games that are beautiful (Legend of Princess (http://konjak.org/section.php?section=princess), Ivory Springs (http://konjak.org/section.php?section=ivory), Solar Plexus (http://konjak.org/comments.php?entry=32)). Alot of his games are parodys of things. There's also Noitu Love 2 (http://konjak.org/section.php?section=noitu2), a 10 dollar game that is just awesome there's also a free demo.
An Untitled Story (http://mattmakesgames.com/games/AnUntitledStory.zip) - Awesome game, you'll love it if you like the sidescrolling metroids.
Osu! (http://osu.ppy.sh/) - It's...well...just watch:

[list]
Radiator Series (http://www.radiator.debacle.us/01/) - A set of mods made for half life 2. These mods aren't as focused around combat but thinking about how the human mind works and hour feelings can be our greatest stength or destroy us. Warning: This game is very deep, it may cause you to really think about humanity and then blow out your brains with a gun. The series isn't finished yet, the last part is still on it's way.
Research and Development (http://www.moddb.com/mods/research-and-development) - Awesome game, another half life 2 mod. Basically take half life 2, take out the guns, and make the puzzles 100x more fun.
I Wonna Be the Guy (http://kayin.pyoko.org/iwbtg/) - Dear god if you have a life, stay away from this it's so hard and addicting it will destroy everything not computer related in your life in one fell swoop![/list:u]

Only if you got free time:
[list]
The Impossible Quiz 1 (http://notdoppler.com/theimpossiblequiz.php) and 2 (http://notdoppler.com/theimpossiblequiz2.php)
Zombie Master (http://www.zombiemaster.org/) - It's kinda like left 4 dead except for the fact that this was made before it and there's one person who controls the zombies and can set of traps and then there's the survivors. It's actually quite fun if you can find a good server with good maps (there's alot of servers now that are just using maps where you have to avoid traps and those really suck :\). Oh and btw this is another half life 2 mod so you need half life 2.[/list:u]

And yah that's it. You know now that I think about it I could have just made this into a blog...damnit...

Seriously?

An indie game is a independently made game. So basically just a game not made my Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, or any "official" developers. Bit.trip.BEAT and Bit.trip.CORE games for wiiware are indie. In fact alot of wiiware games are indie games.

Watch this hilarious video to understand a little better:

I usually head down to Newgrounds for them.
Finished "Company of me" not a while ago. Truly a beautiful game.

Ehhh, newgrounds has some good games but generally flash games aren't always the best representation of how good indie games could be.

There's also the Black Mesa mod for hl2 that recreates HL1 with hl2's engine and graphics.

It looks pretty awesome, check it out:
