12 Indie Reasons To Celebrate Next-Gen

1 of 13

In a couple weeks our two new consoles will release, and with some of the most innovative titles to grace any console.  I wanted to take the time and highlight some games I'm looking forward to.  A few of these will launch with the next-gen hardware, while others I'm just excited to play whenever they come out.  I chose these screenshots to encapsulate the genre, and the outstanding charm and artistic style of each game. Enjoy!

    I'm especially looking forward to Contrast and Everyone's Gone to the Rapture. It's good to see some indie love on WiiU, too.

    Nice roundup Greg!

    I haven't played rogue legacy, I'm super excited about that. And a a fan of Myst, so I'm looking forward to The Witness. A.N.N.E. looks innovative and fun. I like the use of shadows 'n stuff.
