Xbox Live Indie Games You NEED to Buy.

 The Xbox Live Indie Games Marketplace is like the wild west of the Xbox Live service. I know a lot of people who are so intimidated by the sheer massive amount of games in the channel that they straight-out refuse to even explore it for the gems that lie amongst the colossusal amounts of garbage. I, on the other hand, relish the challenging of shifting through the crap, looking for the best games that the channel has to offer. I'm starting to write reviews of Xbox Live Indie Games, but I know a lot people don’t have the time to read every review of mine, where they’d prefer to have a list that tells them what's good and what isn't. Therefore, I'm starting this list of Xbox Live Indie Games You NEED to Buy. It's designed to help people figure out what games to check out.

Now, I'm not saying "GO BUY ALL OF THESE NOW". This is merely a list to point people in the right direction of quality games that they should at least demo if they're at all interested. You may also want to YouTube some gameplay of these games, as I'm a pretty mediocre writer and thus don't usually correctly describe things properly enough for people.

Take note, this list will be updated when I play a new XBLIG so keep your eyes peeled for new games on this list! Also, I don't get to play every single Xbox Live Indie Game ever, so please recommend me some Xbox Live Indie Games so I can try them out. The more help the better, in my opinion!

If you have any questions, please ask.

Glad you put Dark on here.
 
Both me and my girlfriend (and she hates games) the Decay series. Pocoro and Dice XY.
 
Inferno and JoyJoy are great picks as well. It's a real shame that 90% of the shit on Indie Games masks the real greats. (I'm looking at those Avatar games, zombies and Silver Dollar Games)

You should also try the two Soulcaster games. Although a bit expensive for indies, they are just too fun to pass up. Also, as others have mentioned, Epic Dungeon is easily worth the dollar.

Oh God, I haven't updated this list in a while. Look for a massive update soon!

Cthulu Saves the World, from the same guys who made Breath Of Death 7, is also on Indie Games and is also 80 points.
