This game is AWESOME! One of the best side-scrollers I've ever played.
The infographic covers it pretty well. http://www.braid-game.com
Only just discovered it eh :P
- So the New World Order does not actually exist?
- Oh it exists, and how!
Ask the slaves whose labour built the White House;
Ask the slaves of today tied down to sweatshops and brothels to escape hunger;
Ask most women, second class citizens, in a pervasive rape culture;
Ask the non-human creatures who inhabit the planet:
whales, bears, frogs, tuna, bees, slaughtered farm animals;
Ask the natives of the Americas and Australia on whose land
you live today, on whose graves your factories, farms and neighbourhoods stand;
ask any of them this, ask them if the New World Order is true;
they'll tell you plainly: the New World Order… is you!

I played this game on the Xbox Live Arcade called ilomilo which was amazingly sweet and cutesy, and super fun to play too. I think you can also get it if you have a windows phone. Website is here: http://blog.ilomilo.com/

Treasure Island Dizzy:

Hopefully alot of you will know TID already, brilliant platform adventure puzzle game. Kept me thinking, seemed to never end.


Zone of the Enders (PS2):
Disappointingly short game, couple of hours at best, but beautiful and engaging with a good combat system mainly based on reflex, completely worth it. Good soundtrack. Will be cheap as hell by now.


Rez (Dreamcast - if anyone's still works):
Replay value is phenomenal. Can only be described as a journey through a constantly evolving universe, with the soundtrack being as integral to gameplay as anything else. As you progress through levels, each target you hit contributes not only to the complexity of your surroundings, enemies and self but also to the beat, slowly building layers of rhythm and harmony.


Nationstates:
www.nationstates.net - Online community based politics/economics simulation. Pretty basic, I never got hours of continuous gameplay out of it exactly but it can get pretty addictive without taking huge chunks out of your time imo.

Hack Slash Crawl: http://armorgames.com/play/10373/hack-slash-crawl

Best flash game I have played in a very long time. It's a bit like a cross between DnD and Gauntlet. You pick out your character's race and class then hack, slash and crawl through randomized dungeons. Kill a bunch of monsters, collect weapons and armor. Certain weapons and armor let you use spells when equipped. I still haven't figured out what most of the rings do.

I had an awesome level 12 kitlid wanderer with 67,300 mana pearls but he got squished.  :cry:

Also, the "create skeleton" spell is awesome. I wish it let you make more than one. I want my own skeleton army, dammit!!!

It's an 8 bit version of The Great Gatsby!

A simple NES side-scroller that only takes about 10 minutes, but it is pretty neat if you've read the book.
It's not trolling, it's just satire.

Description

The Infinite Ocean is a sci-fi adventure about sentience, freedom, and the search for truth.

A rather simple black and white, point-and-click adventure game in which you wander around the various rooms of some sort of high-tech office/laboratory, and try to escape. Before you begin, I will let the not-so-surprising plot hook out of the bag: an artificial intelligence project gone awry.

There isn't much to be said about the gameplay. It's pretty standard point-and-click fare, although the password solving mechanic is interesting (protip: Scan every page of text you run across). The story and ideas presented are where this game shines.

The atmosphere of being very alone, and yet knowing that there is something unfriendly in this place with you against which you are all but powerless, comes across very well. The music, while you will hear it over and over again during the course of the game (which can be easily finished with a few hours of gameplay at most), is very haunting and suits the game perfectly, as does the stark black and white environment.

It's hard to really describe the emotional impact this game had on me; I'd say try it for yourself and see how you feel after a bit. It'll either draw you in or bore you silly.
