Papers, Please is a great indie game. Journey is great as well, but it's only for the PS3

Pretty much everything suggested here. If you like walking sims then try out stanley parable. wait for sale though before you buy this game.

Indies are always great fun! Try out "THE FALL" its a newer indie game, and its a really cool combination between limbo and dead space!

Rogue legacy is amazing as others have mentioned, and although I haven't played them I hear really good things about spelunky, binding of issac and risk of rain if you're into rogue likes.

If you're into old school platformers Volgar the Viking is a great game, also oniken is a pretty cool game that could have been done on the original nes. There is no shortage of good indie platformers though, you could also try giana sisters, mutant muds deluxe, super meat boy, tiny barbarian dx, and angry video game nerd adventures

If you like metroidvania type games valdis:abyssal city is probably my favorite, guacamelee is a great game and castlevania mirrors of fate was very good also, though it does not play like your traditional castlevania, and shantae: riskys revenge is a great game also

If you like diablo style games, the torchlight series(especially 2) are great games as is the adventures of van hellsing

there are tons more but those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head

Speaking of Co-Op, I forgot about Towerfall Ascension.

Game is mad fun. But I'd put Battleblock Theater and Monaco over it, by just a hair.
