A procedurally generated survival game with shitty graphics, which became popular because it was first-to-market and took advantage of nostalgia.

Unfortunately, Minecraft was never completed and the author fucked off with the money to make another game. Even with extraordinary success, the author didn't make good on promises and the game was never finished.

I loved this game, and even bought it twice to support the developer, but because it was Java it would bring a computer to its knees. Being sold out to Microsoft (for their upcoming virtual reality stuff I'd bet) was bafflingly insulting.

A particularly good scroll-and-slay type game. Pseudo-rpg, with character improvements via weapons and equipment.

Decent game. Has a fair amount of complexity but it's manageable. The camera controls somehow don't work for me. A bit repetitive until you get into things properly.. and then it's fun.. repetitive but fun. Crap-assed ending.

Cool, but has automatic camera angles and too much button mashing.

Too much oddness for me to deal with it. God of War 2 might be worth it though, but I dunno.
