1. Braid for its great puzzles
2. Botinucula for its intuitive way of gaming
3. Mark of the ninja because it's just so cool

Have been playin Braid and Mark of the Ninja lately. They're pretty sweet. But...

Chivalry. Most fun I've had with multiplayer in years. Got over 60 hours in it now, and I still play every day. It's just so brutal and satisfying.

There are a lot of great indie games, don't know what to choose, I'll just mention a few that impressed me in the last several years (some already mentioned), Braid, Age of Chivalry, Trine (especially 2), Dungeon Defenders, Cave Story, Eufloria (formerly known as Dyson, before going retail), Frozen Synapse, Nimbus, Hydrophobia (extremely rough game and overall pretty bad, but unique with interesting gameplay mechanics, lasted enough for it to not become unbrarable due to its "rough" state), Machinarium, Magicka, Rochard (suprisingly excellent game), VVVVVV, Edge and Minecraft.

Some I loved, some just felt fresh and exciting, I've never really been one to choose one ultimate, best of X, Y, Z game.

EDIT: Forgot Zeno Clash, another excellent game.

I don't play a great deal of Indie games, but Trine 2 was one of my favourite games of 2012 (yes, I know it came out late 2011). I've also played a lot of Minecraft, so it's hard to ignore that.

In terms of time invested probably torchlight 2.

In terms of being impactful, limbo.

As far as games that have not been mentioned... World of Goo. Great game considering everything was done on Photoshop by hand and there were only two guys most of the time.

Not sure which games can really be called ''indie''. I'd say the Walking Dead. If that game isn't an indie, than Alan Wake.

And if that game isn't an indie aswell... Torchlight 2. Still amazing how an indie company can make a game better than Blizzard, with a lot less developing time

Amnesia and the Penumbra games. World of Goo and Super Meat Boy are also favorites.

Most recently, Chivalry Medieval Warfare

Super Meat Boy, Torchlight (I want to get 2!) and Endless Space.

Turns out I'm a closet Masochist.

Others of note: Zeno Clash is good but a little repetitive, and Dubloon's a nice free RPG.

Until I started reading through this thread, I had no idea I owned so many indie games. Most of which I have not played because I don't have my new PC finish. Got 38 games just waiting on me on Steam.

Croteam counts as indie, so Serious Sam 3. Hotline Miami is easily the second choice though.
