You should know what The Binding Of Isaac is about before playing. Because of the themes and ideas it deals with, I can't play it specifically because of those.

I can't say that I expected to see that warning from someone on this site.

But yes, The Binding of Isaac has some potentially offensive material in it just from what I know about it. I got it in an indie bundle but I have not played it yet.

As long as old school spirit is what you want and not just visuals or genre, check out Tokyo Jungle.

I've seen Legend of Grimrock compared to lots of old dungeon crawlers, I haven't played any of those old games so I can't personally compare them.

Edit: LoG is 'retro' in content/mechanics. The graphics are modern.)

Err... I didn't mean offensive. I meant a little too emotionally close to home for me.

I would have to say Gemini Rue is a great retro style adventure game, FTL for the strategist, and Fez for an amazing new experience

You liked Hotline Miami? Good news. The sequel owns bones. It also is sort of like Doom 2 in that it's difficulty curve starts where the first game ended. You get thrown right back in.

Fez is a really good game, but man can it cause a headache when you're constantly rotating that freaking little thing! It's like Little Big Planet, but with a bunch of psychedelia usage. And to think, it was meant for little kids.
