Feature: Best Indie Games of 2010

2010 was a stellar year for indie gaming. We didn't think that 2009 could be beat, but this year really brought out all the stops. From classical platformers like Super Meat Boy to disturbing adventure games like Amnesia: The Dark Descent, there was an aboslute flood of excellent indie games this year. From paid to free, players who wanted to try something a little different had a huge selection of titles to choose from in 2010. Here's our favorite picks from 2010 to roll in the new year!

Freeware Friday: Hydorah

Welcome to Freeware Friday, a weekly column showcasing excellent games that you can play free of charge!

Old-school 2D shooters are, plainly put, amazing. There's tons of fun to be had from a simple, yet extremely challenging, shooter. From Raiden to Gradius to R-Type, there's plenty of room in the genre for newcomers, and that is exactly what indie title Hydorah is. There are very few indie games we could call classic, and even less in the realm of freeware. However, Hydorah, is one of those esteemed titles. While it is only the developer's second release, it is so polished and entertaining that it has set aside a place for itself among such incredible titles as Warning Forever or Cave Story. This is a game that deserves to be on everybody's hard drive.
